I had the opportunity to review this book from Kregel Publications. My daughter, who is 8 years old, read this book to help me with this review. Along with this book, Kregel has a free activity guide with each book in the series. Circle C Beginnings has a website for your daughters (or sons) that has coloring pages, the above mentioned activity pages, and puzzles to do at andiandtaffy.com. Below is a book trailer of the books from the Circle C Beginnings Series.
It is a story about a young girl named, Andi, going to school for the first time…when all she wants to do is stay at the ranch. She gets into a bit of trouble, but ends with her thinking school isn’t so bad after all.
Some things I liked about this book was…
a “New Words” page in the beginning of the book defines some words used in the book that may be new to the child
at the end of the book is “A Peek into the Past” page that teaches a little bit about how life was back in 1874
there are lovely sketches throughout the book
a simple story, but yet, not too simple sentences
There are six books in the series and when your child gets into the 9-14 age reading range, there is another Circle C Adventure Series about a girl named, Andrea.
Be sure to click here…the TOS Crew members who participated in the review received different books, so if you wondered what the other books were about read some of the others.
