    Posted on December 13, 2016 by Rachel Mende

    horsesHorses, by Gail Gibbons is a fact-filled book about almost everything you would want to know about horses.  Through text and clear illustrations, you and your child can read about horse breeds, anatomy, sizes, history, terminology and much, much more!

    When reading non-fiction to your child, remember you don’t have to read from cover to cover or in any special order.  You might just read a few lines from a page or the descriptions on a diagram.  You can model to your child how to look for information in a book to answer questions about a topic.  How many toes does a horse have?  What does it mean when a horse twitches his tail?    Reading non-fiction to children truly helps their ability to read and understand the many non-fiction texts they will come across as they go through school.

    Gail Gibbons is a prolific author of children’s non-fiction books.  So, if your child has a special interest about animals, space, holidays, or sports, Gail Gibbons has most likely written a book for you on the subject!
