School Library Journal Review

Gr 2-4-This attractive book is narrated by Sarah Mills, whose family raises racehorses. Her father manages Willow Tree Farm, overseeing the daily operations and the training of the colts, while Sarah, her brother, and mother help out with other tasks. After a brief introduction, Wolfman's matter-of-fact text explains that the farm stables mares for clients and breeds them with the hope of producing fine racehorses. A mare in heat, breeding, and birth are discussed in a straightforward manner, but without much detail. Weaning, daily care, training, and gelding are also covered. Most of the full-color photographs are of high quality (a couple are a bit grainy) and their captions add interest and information. The format is inviting. The book concludes with a page of fun facts. Reminiscent of earlier Cheryl Bellville titles, this one is sure to be enjoyed by horse lovers.-Eldon Younce, Harper Elementary School, KS (c) Copyright 2010.
