Introducing Andi Carter!
Includes all six of the below volumes – for readers ages 6-9:
Book 1: ANDI’S PONY TROUBLE
Andi wants a horse of her own more than anything in the world, but her mother says she’s too young. Stuck with riding Coco, the hand-me-down pony, Andi sets out to show her family that she’s ready for a horse of her own.
Book 2: ANDI’S INDIAN SUMMER
Andi’s friend Riley shows her a scary old dime novel that sets Andi’s mind spinning with thoughts of being captured by Indians. But when she and Riley ride a little too far from the safety of the ranch, Andi discovers the truth about the natives living nearby.
Book 3: ANDI’S FAIR SURPRISE
It’s not fair! 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!
Book 4: ANDI’S SCARY SCHOOL DAYS
School is scary! Andi wants no part of school. School means being away from the ranch all day and sitting next to a boy who throws dead flies at her. Andi didn’t think she was afraid of anything—until now. Being sent to the corner for something she didn’t do is the last straw. Andi’s leaving. And she’s not going back.
Book 5: ANDI’S LONELY LITTLE FOAL
It’s time for Taffy to grow up. But that means leaving her mama. And staying by herself at night. Won’t Taffy be lonely? Then a mean boy tells Andi that foals can get hurt or sick when they’re away from their mothers. What if Johnny is right? How can Andi keep her little horse safe and happy?
Book 6: ANDI’S CIRCLE C CHRISTMAS
Andi loves Christmas! But her holiday is spoiled when a grumpy, bossy visitor arrives. No more running. No catching spiders. No wearing overalls. Can Andi do anything right? Then during an afternoon buggy ride, Andi finds out she can help this unwelcome guest in a way she never imagined.
Team up with Andi Carter and get in on all her antics and adventures, on the Carter family farm! She’s growing up in the 1800s in the great American West, with adventure all around. Perfect for beginning readers with illustrations and simple writing style.
