Wholesome chapter books and lapbooks for girls.

When my girls started to really enjoy reading, I wanted to make sure they were reading quality books that were wholesome. I don't want them learning things before they are ready. I want them to enjoy their innocents as long as they can.

When I started my search for wholesome books, I was so thankful I found Circle C Beginnings and Circle C Adventures, by Susan K. Marlow,  for my girls.

The first set, Circle C Beginnings Series, starts with an introduction of Andi. Andi is a sweet little 6 year old girl who lives on Circle C Ranch. She loves horses and adventures.

"In the Circle C Beginnings, readers ages six to nine will meet spunky, six-year-old Andi Carter, who is eager to grow up and experience the Wild West on the Circle C ranch in 1874. Life is always exciting for Andi, the youngest child in a busy ranching family. Exploring the ranch on her pony, Coco, meeting Indians, and a trip to the state fair are only a few of the adventures she and her friend, Riley, share. And . . . there is Andi's brand-new baby horse, Taffy, to train and love too. These stories include fun illustrations and easy-to-read text, for kids who are ready for first chapter books." (Susan K. Marlow)

In the second series, The Circle C Adventures, Andi is now 12 years old. She still loves horses and adventures.

"Living on the Circle C ranch in 1880s California--the heyday of the Old West--provides Andi with more than her fair share of adventures. Whether nearly trampling her schoolmaster with her palomino horse, Taffy, or outwitting an escaped convict, Andi's life is never boring. Her hair-raising escapades always end up teaching her valuable lessons about family, faith, and friends." (Susan K. Marlow)

ages 9-14

To go along with the books, I purchased lapbooks from A Journey Through Learning. My youngest daughter asks if she can complete her lapbooks. She thinks they are so much fun. Lapbooks not only help with retaining the story, there is also other interesting facts introduced.
So far, she has completed the first two lapbooks. I am printing the third one today.
