Do you remember your first chapter book? I do. I remember laying in bed reading and reading and reading. I don't remember ever reading a chapter book out loud to my mom. But my son will!
The Circle C Beginnings series from Kregel Publications are perfect for the 6-8 year old to begin reading their first chapter books. Set in the late 1800s, these books feature Andi, a feisty six-year-old who dreams of having her own horse. The youngest of five children, Andi has to settle for her hand-me-down pony, Coco. Throughout the book we see Andi wrestle between being a kid and trying to prove herself old enough for a horse.
The Circle C Beginnings books are available individually or in sets. On the website you will find sample chapters, a free downloadable 20 page activity book for each book, coloring pages, and one of our very favorites - interactive puzzles of the beautiful full color drawings in the books! For those who want a more in depth look at horse care and life on a farm in the late 1800s, lapbooks are available for each of the Circle C Beginnings books! There are currently four books in the series with two more due out this fall. My boys are anxious for me to order them all and I think they would be perfect for summer reading! And now through August 31, 2001, homeschoolers can use the code HOME11 for a 30% discount on the Kregel Publications website!
