Jack Magnus 5 Star Review for Readers’ Favorite

Horses & Ponies Activity Book: Introduction to Horses & Horseback Riding makes learning about horsemanship fun, and it does so in a highly effective and memorable way. DiFelice’s book is jam-packed with information, but it also includes puzzles, mazes, quizzes and word searches to ensure that readers retain what they’ve read and make that knowledge their own. I loved learning, finally, what the “hand” measurement actually was and how the different breeds of horses differed in temperament. I also found her discussions on equine terminology and grooming to be fascinating. While this book is geared toward younger riders, anyone who loves horses should give this fun and informative book a read. DiFelice has honed the essentials of horsemanship into an interactive book that works so very well. Horses & Ponies Activity Book: Introduction to Horses & Horseback Riding is most highly recommended. Continue reading…

Never losing sight of the fact that learning can be fun, DiFelice integrates the information with interactive activities like mazes, word searches, crosswords, coloring, object finds within a picture, and even an old-fashioned paper pony doll. All of these activities require different intellectual and motor skills which challenge young readers while entertaining them. And for those in doubt, the answers to all the questions and mazes are provided in the back of the book. The author’s background as an artist and digital designer have held her in good stead, as each page of the activity book is colorful and bursting with images, beckoning young fingers to trace, to point, and to seek the objects buried within each picture.

*5 Star* Book Review from Jane Finch

Horses & Ponies Activity Book: Introduction to Horses & Horseback Riding by Susan DiFelice is a comprehensive all-purpose book that any horse lover will find invaluable. As well as the informative pages which explain about colour, size, type and breed of horse, and the difference between a horse and a pony, there are helpful activities that help the young rider, or the horse enthusiast, to learn about the bridle and saddle and their components and uses. Added to this is learning the correct way to groom, the types of grooming aids and how to use them, and ultimately everything that is needed in the care of a horse. This is a perfect activity book combined with lots of helpful information about caring for a horse. The activities are exciting yet have a purpose as they help the reader to identify the different types of horses and ponies. There really is nothing left out of this activity book which could almost be described as a handbook which also has fun activities to carry out. Continue reading…
