Information boxes full of background information will stimulate inquisitive minds. These books contain between 700 and 850 words, and they are approximately 70 percent pictures and 30 percent text. The Dorling Kindersley Readers combine an enticing visual layout with high-interest, easy-to-read stories to captivate and delight young bookworms who are just getting started. Written by leading children's authors and compiled in consultation with literacy experts, these engaging books build reader confidence along with a lifelong appreciation for nonfiction, classic stories, and biographies.

School Library Journal Review

Gr 1-3-As three children prepare for a show, readers are introduced to the horses at White Lane Farm, the preparations, and the basic events. Conflict arises when one of the children must ride a more difficult-to-handle pony because his scheduled mount is lame. The descriptions and illustrations of the gymkhana are entertaining. Ample white space and compelling color photographs of young equestrians competing in English-style riding are appealing and encouraging for youngsters who may take lessons but don't own their own horses. Everything works out well for the riders, all of whom win ribbons. A solid addition for independent-reader collections serving horse fans.-Lisa Falk, Los Angeles Public Library (c) Copyright 2010.
