Horses of the World Workbook by John Green; Horses of the World Study Guide by Carlynn McCormick
Students of all ages to learn about various breeds and types of horses. This study guide was prepared for students who already have a tremendous interest in horses but you may find other students wanting to do it as well. Help such students find a personal reason for wanting to be more informed about the world of horses—don’t try to teach students information without their first having a personal reason for knowing it.
For centuries, the horse has served man and inspired his respect. Whether packing a load of new-found gold in California or gallantly leading the cavalry in battle at Waterloo, the horse has long been an essential partner in human endeavor.
In this coloring book, gifted animal illustrator John Green and writer Robert Stephen Kendal team up to create a marvelous pictorial history of the horse-the species Equus caballus. Now horse lovers can learn fascinating facts about horses-history, breeds, types and more, while they color exciting scenes of horses in the fields, racing, at shows and in battle.
Here are 42 detailed line drawings of stallions and mares from all over the world. Included are an exotic Arabian steed shown mounted by one of Napoleon’s cuirassiers (calvary soldier wearing a cuirass – a type of armor), and the familiar mustang roaming free on the western range. Informative captions provide accurate background and information on each breed. You’ll also find a glossary to help you determine the proper color shades, patterns and combinations to use as you create your own impressions of this time-honored companion to man.
