I have always loved this book, even when I was just beginning to read. The text and illustations are marvelous. I love the way the author gave a story about every breed, besides telling basic facts about each horse. The pictures bring out the story and are very good. All in all, I'd say this is one of the best horse books out there for any age horselovers!

Extremely Excellent!

The Album of Horses is a really great book. I read it a long time ago, but I still remember how Marguerite Henry described every detail of the Arabian, the courageous story of the Morgan, and especially about Misty, the Chincoteague pony.Margurite is my favorite author, I've read all of her books.Also, the Album of Horses makes a great horse reference book. I LOVE IT AND MARGUERITE AND MISTY AND EVERYTHING ABOUT HER! And it should really be 1,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,001 stars, not only 5!

As a youth and as an adult I enjoyed this book very much.

I first read this book when I was 12 years old. I totally enjoyed it. Even now it is a pleasure to sit down with it. Although it does have age recommendations it is a book a young person who does not read can also enjoy because of the wonderful illustrations by Mr. Dennis. I still have my copy from childhood and have purchased copies for other young people and will continue to do so. I have at this time one ordered from a local book store for a girl who is "challenged". Although she can't read and her attention span at this time is fairly short this is a book I know she will get a lot of pleasure from.

I loved this book when I was a little kid now I'm 45!

If you want a good book to encourage your children's love of horses buy this book for them. It is one of the best kids' horse books of all time (with Misty and Black Beauty)
