Uncover a Horse

Review By JESSICA ALMY

David George Gordon’s Uncover a Horse transported me back to the days of 4-H hippology competitions. This book is perfect for budding equine enthusiasts who want to know about horses’ anatomy or behavior. Page by page, readers physically deconstruct and reconstruct a horse.

While the book does not speak to animal welfare issues, it does explain what horses are all about and what they need, making it a good primer for kids lucky enough to have a real horse in their lives. Riding and driving horses are not the focus of the book, but they are dealt with in a straightforward manner.

As someone who had horses as childhood companions, Uncover a Horse reminds me how magical, and complex, these animals are.┬áKids intrigued by dolphins, sharks, or tarantulas will be delighted to learn that Mr. Gordon has penned similar “Uncover” books about those species.

Ages 8-12.
