American Quarter Horses Are My Favorite! by Elaine Landau
I've never really been that into horses, not even when I was younger. But growing up there were always girls who were very into horses, and I expect that that hasn't changed much since. This series is fun and informative and nicely blends the more factual horse-based information with the majestic images that horses have. It breaks down why having your own horse might not be the best idea and honestly lays out how big a commitment a horse can be. But it also talks about ways you can be involved with horses without having to own one. The colourful photographs will appeal to readers who like realistic images, and like many Lerner books it is a nice fit for students looking for report information as well as readers reading for pleasure on a topic that they're interested in.
