About the Book

In Horses, Seymour Simon introduces elementary-school readers to horses through engaging descriptions and stunning full-color photographs. He teaches readers all about horses through pictures, diagrams, and maps. This book includes a glossary and index.

What animal can . . .

  • run so fast, its feet don't always touch the ground,
  • weigh more than 2,000 pounds,
  • sense people's emotions by their smell,
  • . . . and wear shoes?
  • Why, a horse, of course!

Horses are some of the most fascinating--and important--creatures on Earth. In fact, our world would not be the way it is today if not for horses. Horses have carried medieval knights into battle, transported settlers to the American West, and hauled fire engines and buses. They even turned the wheels that provided power for factories! But one of their greatest, most enduring gifts to us is companionship and trust.
