Horse Heroes by Mary Pope Osborne and Natalie Pope Boyce

Image of Horse Heroes featuring a black horse against a prarie and blue sky"Some people say that after horses were tamed, the world changed forever. We were curious to know if this was true."

Have you ever read a made-up story and wondered which parts of it were true? If you have read any or all of the Magic Tree House series, you may like to know that the author (and her daughter) have written non-fiction books to go along with some of these fantasy/historical fiction stories. Horse Heroes relates to Jack and Annie’s Stallion by Starlight adventure and provides dozens of interesting facts and true stories about horses through human history.

Perfect for 2nd and 3rd grade readers, Horse Heroes explains why horses’ bodies are especially speedy and strong and how horses have been used for travel, farming, business, sports and war. The book also includes the stories of many famous horses of the past. I thought this book was a great read and learned some interesting facts about horses.
