Looking for nonfiction books

Recommended Posts

DD4 who is getting close to 5 has really enjoyed the book Seabiscuit.  We have been reading aloud a chapter or 2 a day with just a little editing at times.  Laura Hillenbrand has done a great job telling the story.


I can find a few more books on other race horses, but I am trying to come up with some other well written true stories that would keep her attention. I have thought about stuff on the Iditarod or the kids that have sailed around the world, what other suggestions can you all come up with.  If you know of authors that have done a really good job that would help too.

I only know of fiction books by Marguerite Henry, although I believe they are based on true stories.  I could be wrong.  There is a book called the Horse Whisperer which is Nothing like the movie.  I am still scarred by that movie.  These are not horse racing though.
