Book Overview

Calling all young equestrians and Cat (in the Hat) fanciers In this latest installment of the Cat in the Hat's Learning Library, the Cat introduces Sally and Nick--and beginning readers--to all things horsey. At his Super-Tremendous-Stupendous Horse Show, the Cat explains how horses and people have worked together since ancient times; the difference between fillies, foals, yearlings, mares, colts, dams, sires, and stallions; horse anatomy from nose to tail; the work of a farrier, Western vs English riding; and much, much more--including fun facts about 13 of the most popular horse breeds Fans of the new PBS Kids preschool science show the Cat in the Hat Knows a Lot About That (which is based on The Cat in the Hat's Learning Library) will whinny with glee over this new addition to the series

   Great for teaching little ones about horses
This is not your normal doctor's book, it really tells with great illustrations the different parts of a horse, the names of stallions, the different saddles, English versus western style and why they are used, plus different types of horses and where they are from. My great niece, 2.5 years old, and great nephews, 5.5 and almost 7 years old, loved the book. The two littles love all animals, including horses, their mom said.
   Not at all what i expected! I bought two more!
It was originally bought for my friends. It was great to read it with the kids and I'll definitely be back. So much so that i ordered two more copies for my other friend who has a 5. I'm delighted to be able to share this moment with my children. It is more informative about all the horse breeds and where they came from, their purpose and where they came from. It's more geared toward the older kiddos like 6+ maybe, but I'm still going to keep it and read it to my 7 year old. He said he still enjoyed it.
   So many cool facts!!!
There are some really interesting horse facts and figures in this book, too. It was the perfect present for my almost 2 1/2 year old daughter who loves horses. It's too advanced for my kids. They enjoy the pictures and have taken in a few of the facts, Morgenthau said. I think they will really appreciate this book in a couple years and I'm glad to have it in our library, added Jennette. This is a really great book, but I'd say it's probably a better fit for kids ages 5 to 7.
   This is not simply a silly rhyming story, it is equine education your child can understand.
I highly recommend this book to anyone who reads it. I was not expecting it to be educational about horse breeds, tack, and anatomy. I would highly recommend this book to anyone.
   Dr Suess surprised us!
What kid doesn't love Dr. Suess' rhymes? There are some surprising amounts of factual information on such things as color theory and how it affects the human race. Simply put, kids learn easily when topics are presented in a fun and engaging manner. Our 5 year old simply adores this book and the 8 year old just loves reading it to her. I'm back to buy several more fabulous gifts for riding students, Mr. Dhaliwal said. Hope this helped a bit with your shopping decision, Melissa.
   Better than expected!
It was for this reason that I ordered this for my 2 1/2 year old sister to take to competition to help keep her occupied. The whole thing is a parody of the "Seussical" story told in a cutesy, child-friendly way. Got that? Even the older girls enjoyed it, Book said. A nice surprise, Mr. Cowger said.
   Great read for horse loving children
Thanks to Dr. Seuss and the horse industry, we get to keep the kids. This is a great book, excellent illustrations and a hit with children, too.
My daughter absolutely loves Dr. S and horses so this book was perfect for them. Surprisingly, very few kids get into college. The item was purchased using Amazon's credit card, and the buyer was extremely satisfied.
   Wrong title
I thought the book would be about how someone thought a horse show should be run, he said. It's just that they don't have enough money." It was just about different horse breeds and colors, too, he said. A really cute book for kids, but it's wrong title.
   Horse crazy kid? You'll love it...
I breed and show horses, always looking for kids' books. It was perfect, we all read it out loud even before showing it to my grandson. The book is reminiscent of Dr. Seuss' "The Little Whores" and horse lovers will enjoy it. Very accurate and educational, even though it is not always accurate.
