Book Review: Andi's Scary School Days

chapter book for ages 6-8

About The Book

(Circle C Beginnings No. 4) is perfect for the older age children who are beginning to read Chapter Books.

Exciting adventures for early readers!

Written for reading levels 2.0-2.8, the Circle C Beginnings series combines fun illustrations and six-year-old Andi's signature curiosity.
In book four, Andi didn't think she was afraid of anything-until now. School means being away from the ranch, away from her family, and away from Taffy. And sitting next to a boy who throws things at her. Having to stand in the corner for something that wasn't even her fault is the last straw.

Christian Fiction/Chapter Book for ages 6-8

About the Author

Susan K. Marlow, like Andi, has an imagination that never stops! Whether she's writing books, teaching writing workshops, or sharing what she's learned as a homeschooling mom, she's always on the lookout for a new story. The author of the Circle C Adventures and the Circle C Beginnings, Susan enjoys relaxing on her 14-acre homestead in the great state of Washington.

Leslie Gammelgaard, blessed by the tall trees and flower gardens that surround her home in Washington state, finds inspiration for her artwork in the antics of her lively little granddaughter. 

My Review
 Do you remember how you felt when the first day of school arrived? Like most of us, Andi is nervous about attending school for the very first time because things are unfamiliar. From hiding in a barn to climbing up a tree, our main character finds herself not easily fitting in with the routine of classroom rules and students, learning to trust others. On top of that, her teacher Miss Hall has her writing on the blackboard during the children's recess as a way to teach Andi Carter obedience. After all, one of the many rules to learn is, I Will Not Talk During Class. Misunderstandings continue to unfold throughout a series of adventures but things turn around for Andi with the help of a new friend, Cory and his lizard named Pickles. Most importantly, Andi realizes she doesn't need to feel alone at school whenever she is away from home because God is always with her and Miss Hall is very nice, too. An enjoyable read.

5/5 stars. Recommend it.
I was not compensated in any way, in exchange for my honest review, from
