Grade 3-6-- Miniature horses, those less than 34 inches at the shoulder, are indeed remarkable animals. Intelligent and playful, the breed can live in backyards and enter houses. Since the origins of miniatures are unknown, La Bonte relates general equine history from prehistoric times, the first known appearances of the diminutive steeds, their various uses in Europe, and finally, their introduction to the New World. She compares miniature with regular horse ranches and describes miniatures' performances in shows and parades. Excellent full-color action photographs, including those matching a miniature ear-to-ear with a child and nose-to-nose with a dog to establish its relative size, make the book as appealing as its subject. The glossary of bold-type words, index, and list of places that welcome visits expand the book's information potential. --Patricia G. Harrington, Phoenix Public Library
