My Review

I liked the main character, Andi Carter with her out-going personality and curious, tomboyish ways. Belonging to a warm, loving cattle ranch family provides this eager-to-grow-up little girl with good self esteem and a wonderful sense of belonging. The action in this sweet story moves along at a good pace, while the children and their mom take a long journey aboard the train to the state fair. Children will love reading the descriptions of the sights and smells there, plus the many adventures experienced, from blue ribbons to ring toss games at this celebration; along with some nice illustrations. Find out what happens when Andi learns about some attitude adjustment changes in winning her very own lamb at the fair. The lesson in sacrificial giving and the blessing in being obedient is a precious one. I am new to the series. I look forward to reading more from the author.

4/5 stars. Recommend.
