Circle C Beginnings Book #1

Andi wants a horse. She has a pony, but her three brothers and her older sister all rode the pony when they were little. She doesn't want to ride Coco the pony anymore; besides, he trots and Andi doesn't like to trot. So, she comes up with this great plan. She wants a horse for her sixth birthday. She just knows that she is big enough. But her mom says no. Her brothers and sister even say she is too young. Can she take care of a horse? Can she even get up on the horse?

This book teaches younger children about responsibilities. Andi has to learn to be responsible and take care of Coco, something she really doesn't want to do. But, if she can't take care of Coco, how can she take care of a horse? It also teaches about consequences. When Andi leaves Coco behind and he doesn't come home, she realizes that she was not being responsible and taking care her pony.

I give this book 5 stars. It was a great story with a great lesson for kids.

The publisher, Kregel Publications, has some great activity sheets and coloring pages to go with the Circle C Beginnings Books.

I received this complementary book from Christian Review of Books for my honest review.
