    1. Lewin, T & Lewin, B. (2008). Horse Song: The Naadam of Mongolia. New York: Lee & Low Books.9781584302773Appetizer: Following their own trip to Mongolia as tourists the Lewins share about the preparation and events of a Naadam festival. They begin byAs can be expected from previous Caldecott honor winners (Betsy for Click, Clack Moo: Cows That Type) the illustrations in Horse Song are A-MA-ziiiiiiiing! They use a lot of wonderful color and manage (I'm guessing here, since I have yet to fi [...]

    2. Ted and Betsy Lewin do a lovely job of integrating pretty jarringly different illustration styles into one cohesive book. This title is about a summer festival in the relatively obscure country of Mongolia. The Lewins give a page of background about the country, and then launch into a narrative about their trip to witness the horse races of Naadam. Along the way, lush realistic watercolors depict the larger scenes, while more comic illustrations are sketched in pen and watercolor. At the end, th [...]

    3. This book is about the Naadam festival in Mongolia. The authors traveled there and experienced the festivities with a family whose son was one of the jockeys. The book explains the way of life for these people and how the race works. There are Mongolian words that are both explained in the story and in a glossary at the end. There are also more in depth explanations of the ger, or Mongolian collapsible round tent and other facts about Mongolia at the back of the book as well as a glossary and pr [...]

    4. Ted and Betsy Lewin bring readers along for the ride on their trip to Mongolia to watch the horse races of Naadam, a cultural festival in Mongolia. Child riders race half-wild horses across the desert sands in this annual celebration that brings isolated Mongolian nomads together to celebrate their heritage.The illustrations are phenomenal. Detailed paintings bring the reader inside family dwellings and into the middle of the races while smaller cartoon-ish drawings lighten the mood. I really en [...]

    5. The paintings in this book are just stunning then they go and mess it up with little cartoon drawings scattered here and there. I felt these sketches took away not only from the beautiful artwork, but from the story of tradition and family pride that was being told. Regardless, it is a good teacher and school media specialist picture book.

    6. A very informative picture book describing the lives of Mongolian nomads around the time of the Naadam celebration. The watercolor illustrations are beautiful. I think this book would work nicely for children interested in travel, other worlds and cultures. It is a bit long, so best for older children.

    7. This travelog is personal and respectful. Ted an Betsy Lewin's illustrations in two different styles compliment each other and capture both the breathtaking beauty and the light-hearted side of their experiences. Well done indeed!

    8. Awesome illustrations. The story was a little weak, even for middle grade. I did like the cultural aspect as well as the Mongolia Facts at the end. That made it more interesting.

    9. I loved the idea of this book, but I was a little disappointed with the way it was written. I think the Naadam is fascinating, but the book didn't live up to my expectations.

    10. Picture book, which I knew that when I put it on hold, but totally forgot by the time it came in. :) Cute art, good visual inspiration for fantasy project I'm working on.
