A noteworthy review of Majestic Horses from Booklist on April 15, 2007
This slim volume from the Majestic Horses series introduces thoroughbreds. Each double-page spread offers a couple of paragraphs of fairly large text on a white background facing an illustration, usually a color photo of a horse. Among the topics addressed are the physical characteristics of thoroughbred horses, their history in England and North America, and their lives in racing and other endeavors. Back matter includes a photo of a horse with 34 parts clearly labeled, a glossary, and a short bibliography. Children new to the topic will find this a useful source of basic information and good photos.
