I received a sample for this review/feature. Opinions expressed are my own.
Educational books can be just as much fun to read as fiction. From the award-winning science writer Seymour Simon comes Horses and Water. These titles fully support the Common Core Learning Standards, Next Generation Science Standards and the Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) standards. Kids and parents alike will one to read these books over and over again while viewing the GORGEOUS photographs.
Learn all about the water cycle, the effect on our planet of rising ocean temperatures, how essential clean water is around the world, and more!
Readers will learn how horses came to be domesticated, how to distinguish different breeds, the important roles horses have served throughout history, and more. From stallions and mares and Clydesdales to Palominos, this is sure to be a hit with horse lovers and animal lovers everywhere!

These editions include: author’s note, stunning full-color photographs, glossary, index and additional reading sources. Sure, my girls enjoy when I read these books to them but I will often find them alone just browsing the pages without reading because they enjoy the photos that much. This book series is one not to be missed!
