Reviews - What do customers think about Album of Horses?

Album of Horses by Marguerite Henry  Mar 17, 2007
I had owned this book when I was a kid. I loved it because it gave you so much information about the different breeds of horses and the pictures were wonderful for me to look at back then. I bought this book because I don't know what happened to the original and it made me sad. Out of nostalgia for the past experience I had when I had the book as a kid, as an adult, I wanted the book back. I was so thankful that it was possible to even get a copy because I know it is an older book. Even though the reading is not geared for an adult I still find the book heart-warming to own.
Not what I expected  Apr 17, 2006
When I bought this book, it looked pretty good and since it had more than a hundred pages, i thought i would enjoy it but i didnt.
This book starts of with a story of a horse, then goes into some boring history. You dont get very many good facts from this book, so if you are looking for a book that has a lot of facts about horses in it, dont buy this one!
Wonder ful Way To Learn About Breeds Of Horses!  Jan 14, 2006
I haven't read the new edition, but I have an old, 1960s hardcover from an antique store and it is beautiful! Henry's breed descriptions turn the history of a horse into a captivating story. Best of all, it is all factual! Dennis's amazing horse pictures illuminate the book and give it a charming touch. Being a devoted Appie lover and owner, I was particularly fond of the chapter on the Appaloosa! All the stories and accompanying artwork peices are spectacular, though, and it is my opinion that every junior rider worth her salt should have a copy of this book on their shelf.

This is one of Henry's best horse books due to its incredible combination of facts and breathtaking paintings. Many of the top classical breeds of the world are showcased in this one-of-a-kind book. An excellent gift choice for any horse lover, young or old.
