My 3 year old son loves horses passionately, so for Christmas this year I tried to find him a few horse-themed gifts. This Dover coloring book is one of the things I bought him. The picture on the front looks rather cartoony, so I assumed this coloring book would be for young children. But the cover is a bit deceiving. When it arrived, I found that the book would probably be more appropriate for slightly older horse lovers. The drawings inside are quite detailed, and many pages contain a great deal of information, such as different styles of bridles, different gaits, parts of the horses body, etc.
Probably most of the this is beyond the understanding of my 3 year old. He will still color some of the pictures, all the same--and the pictures are well done. Like all Dover coloring books, the paper is good quality. It's a nice book. Still, I thought it worth mentioning that the content of this book is probably best suited to a child 5-10 years old.
