    School Project...help?

    Hi!
    I'm in the 10th grade and I'm doing a major school project and I was wondering if anyone could help. I have to write a children's book about horses, and it's a big project and a major grade. I would appreciate it if ANYONE could fill out this survey to help me with my project, especially if you have experiences with horses and/or children. Thanks so much. You can just copy&paste, and then reply with the survey filled out, PM it to me, or email it to me (yellow_jello1237@hotmail.com). Whatever is best for you. Thanks again!


    Survey

    What is your experience (if any) working with horses and children?

    Do you know any good books about horses? Why are they so good?

    What would be a good target audience (a specific age range, gender, and/or reader purpose) for a book about horses? Why?

    What do you think is the most important thing to include in a children’s book about horses?

    Please rate the following in what would be most important to include in a children’s book about horses: (Rate 1 as highest and 9 as lowest)
    ___ Grooming
    ___ Riding (lessons, trail riding)
    ___ Riding Safety (helmet, hoof picking, etc.)
    ___ Barn chores (mucking out, feed, etc.)
    ___ Vet & Farrier duties
    ___ Showing and Gaming
    ___ Horse Breeds & colorings
    ___ Clothes & Tack
    ___ Other Suggestion _____________________________________

    Additional comments/suggestions?

    Is it OK if I quote you in my project? (I have to give a presentation about the writing process and what I went through to create my book)

    I would appreciate your name and/or email address so I can contact you further if needed, but I understand if you don't want to give me this information.

    Thank you! :D

    Survey

    What is your experience (if any) working with horses and children?
    15 yrs experiance from riding to working groom to driving, in the middle of a collage course, I'm a mother and was around kids all my life.

    Do you know any good books about horses? Why are they so good?
    There are so many out there that listing them would be complicated. Its depends on the type of subject on horses and the age group your looking for, lots of great books for kids and for adults.

    What would be a good target audience (a specific age range, gender, and/or reader purpose) for a book about horses? Why?
    Again this would depend on what you want to convey and to who. For children normally an introduction to colors and behaviour and a small introduction to care and cost.

    What do you think is the most important thing to include in a children’s book about horses?
    A basic understanding of horses without too much detail and a sense of the reasponsiblity of owning such an animal.

    Please rate the following in what would be most important to include in a children’s book about horses: (Rate 1 as highest and 9 as lowest)
    3___ Grooming
    6___ Riding (lessons, trail riding)
    7___ Riding Safety (helmet, hoof picking, etc.)
    5___ Barn chores (mucking out, feed, etc.)
    4___ Vet & Farrier duties
    8___ Showing and Gaming
    1___ Horse Breeds & colorings
    9___ Clothes & Tack
    2___ Other Suggestion Care and Feed

    Additional comments/suggestions? Alot of those should be grouped together, like grooming and Vet amd Farrier, Riding lessons and riding safety, showing and clothes and tack. A childs nbook isn't trying to teach riding, its trying to give a basic understanding of why we ask them to do certain care to a horse, helping to rise an intrest in horse care.

    Is it OK if I quote you in my project? (I have to give a presentation about the writing process and what I went through to create my book)

    Yes go for it, you might want to head to your local feed shop and take a look at the books currentlly out for kids, there are a few and you will probubly find some great ideas.
    The reason dogs are great is they wag their tails, not their tongues.

    Thanks!

    That's really interesting because I posted a similar question on a different board and I got completely different answers!
    It is important to make sure kids really understand the responsibility involved when it comes to horses, though.
    thanks again...
