    This is book 2 of a six book set and we like them all. They also seem to connect with the older set of Circle C books and my daughters are blazing through them only to read the whole set over again...that's enough proof for me, but the content is also acceptable from a mother's point-of-view

    Andi's Indian Summer is the second book in the Circle C Beginnings series. This delightful book teaches children to watch what they read (or maybe even watch on tv). What they see can affect how they respond to others. Andi reads an Indian story from a dime novel. Then when she meets a real Indian, she is afraid, not knowing that the man she meets is a peaceful Indian.

    I would recommend this book to anyone with children.

    I recently had the opportunity to meet this author at a homeschool convention. My son thought these would be great books for his younger sister as she loves horses. He was right. She is a reluctant reader, but couldn't wait to find out what Andi would do next. The study guide and coloring pages from the author's website were a great supplement.

    Excellent for Emerging Chapter Book Readers

    When six-year-old Andi's friend Riley reads his dime store novel to her, she develops a powerful fear of Indians. So when they encounter some on one of their rides across the ranch, they aren't sure what to expect! Thankfully, this is a peaceful tribe, and the children learn about how the Yokut live before returning to the ranch house.

    Andi's Indian Summer is the second entry in the exciting Circle C Beginnings series for emerging chapter book readers by Susan Marlow. I can't say enough about this series for children who are just getting ready to move into reading short chapter books on their own. Andi's Indian Summer will always hold a fond place in my heart as the first chapter book my seven-year-old daughter read in its entirety! She had read parts of other chapter books, but this is the first one she managed to read independently in its entirety! This book has really kick-started my daughter's interest in reading on her own, and I'm so thankful for it!

    I have to note that this is a bit of a one-sided presentation of the conflict between Native Americans and American settlers of the West. Riley's dime store novel and its portrayal of Indians as dangerous is cast in a light that makes it appear untrue. While the tribe the children encounter is peaceful, many tribes were not. The book's "A Peek Into the Past" section doesn't indicate this, so you might want to provide a bit more information as you or your children read this book. Of course, I do understand the author's wanting to keep things gentle for the target age range.

    A keen interest in Native American cultures and history has been sparked in my little ones as a result of our reading this book together. While my eldest read this on her own, I used it as a read aloud with my two and four-year-olds. We had days filled with "You play Andi, and I'll play the Indian girl," after our family enjoyed this book together.

    I also highly recommend you visit the Andi and Taffy website online! It has become one of my children's favorite websites! Free coloring pages from the series and free activity book collections are available to download there, and are well worth the effort.

    Andi's Indian Summer by Susan K. Marlow is the second book in the Circle C Beginnings series about six-year-old Andi's life on a ranch in 1874 California. In this book, Andi and Riley, her eight-year-old friend, take a ride on their horses across the fields and hills to a creek. When some local Indians make an appearance, Andi is terrified because of the dime novel Riley was reading to her about Indian captives. First Mia's review: I liked the book because they had an adventure. My favorite part was when I was reading it, I felt like I was in the book! Andi is a smart but silly little girl who gets scared easily, but she's also brave. It makes her very realistic. Girls will love to read this book because it has horses! I learned that Indians aren't bad like the dime novel made them seem. Here's my review: This was a good book to read with my eight-year-old daughter. We took turns reading the book to each other because the vocabulary was easy for her to read and understand. Andi is very much like a normal six-year-old little girl, and that makes the story really come to life. Marlow includes an important lesson for readers about getting to know people to actually know who they are, rather than relying on stereotypes or rumors. At the beginning of the book is a short vocabulary list giving definitions of possible new words for readers, and at the end is a short note from the author asking readers to consider some of the questions from the book. These two items make the book a useful tool for teaching better comprehension in younger readers. This series has earned a permanent place in my daughter's heart, and for that I have to give it five stars.
