Andi's Fair Surprise by Susan K. Marlow

Andi's Fair Surprise
Circle C Beginnings, Book 3

by Susan K. Marlow
(Kregel Publications)

About the Book

If Andi can’t take Taffy to the 1874 California State Fair and win a blue ribbon, she doesn't want to go. But the fair turns out to be so exciting that Andi’s glad she came . . . until her brother tells her she can't keep the prize she won fair and square!

About the Series

Children ages 6-8 can join six-year-old Andi, her friend Riley, and Coco, Andi's hand-me-down pony, for a whole new series of adventures on the Circle C ranch in 1874. A baby Taffy will join the ranch as well! These are completely new stories, with fun, black-and-white illustrations and easy-to-read text, for kids who are ready for first chapter books.

My Daughter's Review

I liked how the book told about different places at the fair you can go to, and I like all the animals Andi saw. I liked how she gave up what she loved to help her family. I liked how her mother told about the shepherd giving up all of the lambs just to find one. This shows that Jesus cares for all of us. I would recommend this book to other kids my age who like animals. The story gives you a nice, warm feeling, as if you’re actually there watching Andi look at all the animals and all the fairgrounds. The book also teaches us that when you’re on trains not to open the windows!
