Well, hello there!!! I'm so glad you stopped by! :) I bet you'd like to get my posts delivered right to your inbox, now wouldn't you? So why not sign up for Feedburner? Check it out, it's right there in my sidebar! Thanks!! :)
About the product/service: As part of the TOS Homeschool Crew I received a free copy of Andi's Pony Trouble by Susan Marlow from Kregel Publications so I could share it with my kids and let you know what they thought! :)
This book features Andi, who first made her debut as an older child in the Circle C Adventures series. Now younger kids can get to know Andi, too, through the Circle C Beginnings series. It's a chapter book, recommended for ages 6 to 8 but, in my humble opinion, is quite appropriate for kids a bit older. (I have been known to read and enjoy many of the kids' books around here!)
In the story, Andi sets out to prove to her family that she is old enough to own and take care of her very own horse. Can she convince her family? Will Andi get her own horse? You'll have to read it to find out! :)
What are the pros of this product? It's just a nice little book for young readers.
What's not to like? Drawing a blank here. :)
The Crazy Mom take: I knew right away who'd be my "Junior Reviewer" this time around. It had to be Bear because she loves horses and this book was right up her alley. Even though it is written for kids in the 6 to 8 year range, and she was 9 (almost 10) when she read it, she loved it! She would highly recommend it to others! :) (Oh, and she is literally begging me to get the rest of the books as I type!)
What's the bottom line? $4.99
I am going to give Andi's Pony Trouble 5 out of 5 smileys!!!

*The Smiley System:
I can't really recommend this product.
I doubt this product would be helpful to many people.
This is a good product, but isn't right for everyone.
Most homeschool moms will find this useful.
This is great, and I would recommend it to anyone!!!
