   I have always been an avid reader. Growing up, I loved historical fiction. Now that I am an adult, I still enjoy speed-reading books for a younger audience in the hopes of finding new favorites for my siblings as well as my future children. Although there are many wonderful books for children and young adults which are not particularly Christian (think Little House and such), it is always great to be able to provide books for your children which reinforce Biblical truths and grace. I have found that Susan's books stay true to the Christian faith without becoming fake or unrealistic.
Unusually for Christian works of fiction, her books are also quite exciting. These books make splendid read-aloud as well as personal reading books.
Andi Saddles Up is a delightful story for children. Even I loved reading it, and I am an adult. I thought it an excellent story of growth and maturity.

Andi Under the Big Top was very interesting as it highlighted the circus of that time period. The story had me quite interested and of course young readers will love it even more!

I received this book from the publisher in exchange for my honest review. Thank you!
