What Does A Police Horse Do?

Along with his partner, Officer Eric Lukacs, he patrols areas of the city, meets with school children, and even helps with crowd control at big events. Follow along with this very special horse to learn just what a police horse does every day.


An incredible book that will, no doubt, find its way onto every “Best of 2019” children’s book lists. - Amy Lignor, Feathered Quill Book Reviews

This is a very well written, easy to read (for my child with dyslexia) and illuminative children’s book. I was pleasantly surprised with the charming photographs of Liam the police horse. This is a fun, quick-paced creative nonfiction that will not disappoint. It’s a fun book to share with a special child in your life. - Amazon Review

This book is highly recommended for all. It is written for children, but every one, whether young or adult will enjoy it. A nice glimpse into the life of a Police Horse, it's Officer and it's caregivers. - Amazon Review

It’s encouraging to see that author Ellen F. Feld and photographer John Cebula have created a new book meant for very early readers that taps into the natural appeal of horses…even better, her recently released volume, What Does A Police Horse Do?, focuses on a public figure…the mounted officer. This is a fine book for parents to share with their beginning readers as kids sound out simple words that Mom or Dad reads to them while they look at the fine photographs of Liam and Eric going through getting ready and patrolling. - PonyPals Magazine

Not living in an area where police horses are utilized, this information was fascinating. In your mind you understand that police horses are a good thing in a community, but it is entirely different to 'see' them in their workplace--which is what this book conveys.  The easy-to-read print and message along with the remarkable pictures brings this career into focus for readers.  Also the camaraderie between the police horses and the K-9 units is an advantageous perk of having these animals working in the same department The time the author and illustrator have taken to publish this amazing publication shows on every page.  If little ones are a part of your life, this book would make a wonderful bedtime story. - Laura H., AuthorsDen

About Ellen F. Feld

Award-winning author Ellen Feld began writing about horses more than 20 years ago. At first she wrote for small, regional magazines, but within a few short years, her work began to appear regularly in large, national publications. In 2001, while waiting for her next assignment, Ms. Feld wrote a short story about a Morgan. That tale became the first chapter of Blackjack: Dreaming of a Morgan Horse. The book went on to win a coveted Children's Choices award (as did the second book in the series, Frosty), an honor bestowed jointly by the International Reading Association and the Children's Book Council.  The book was also picked up by Breyer Animal Creations to be sold with a model of the star of the story, Blackjack. To date, Ms. Feld has authored fourteen horse books, including seven in the Morgan Horse series. She lives in Massachusetts with her husband, two children, twelve horses, and assorted other pets.
