A Breath of Fresh Air…

  My children love to read.  But finding wholesome reading material that stirs my children’s imagination can be a challenge.  You see, this mom doesn’t let her children have free range at the local library.  It’s just too dangerous.  I know what you are thinking.  I’m being overprotective.  Maybe so, but I have weighed the options.  And I have came to the conclusion that I’d rather be too cautious than to have lies and misconceptions but into my children’s minds.

So let me tell you about my newest discovery – The Circle C Beginnings Series.  It is written by Susan K. Marlow, a homeschooling mom who lives in the state of Washington on a 14-acre homestead.  You might be familiar with Circle C Adventures series for readers 9 to 14.  This new series is written for children ages 6 to 8 who are ready to start their first chapter books.

In this series you meet Andi Carter, a young girl who is eager to grow up and experience the Wild West of the late 1800s.  With her baby horse, Taffy, she lives an exciting life on Circle C ranch.  We were sent Andi’s Indian Summer to review.  The book is a breath of fresh country air!  It is as cute as can be, making you want to throw on some overalls and spend an afternoon wading in a cool brook.  Best of all, I do not have to worry about the content of these books.  In fact, in Andi’s Indian Summer, Andi learns that you must be careful what you read.  A lesson still true for today!

As an added bonus you can visit www.andiandtaffy.com for free coloring, activity, and lapbook pages.  The books are a great price at $4.95 each.  Or you can order all four in the series for $15.96 (+ $3 shipping).  They are also available at Amazon, CBD, and Kregel Publications.  If you have a young child and you are in need of some great reading material be sure and check out this series.  You won’t be disappointed.
