Our Kids Review: Andi's Lonely Little Foal

Anastasia is a kindergartener who loves books, ballet, and learning about new things. Here is her review of Susan K. Marlow's Andi's Lonely Little Foal.

Andi is worried about Taffy, her foal, because Taffy is away from her mother. She’s being weaned. Andi gets in trouble because she wants Taffy to be back with her mommy, Snowflake. Andi is sneaky and disobeys and sleeps in Taffy’s stall and takes Taffy back to her mommy.

But Andi learns not to do that again because she gets in trouble. She learns to trust God and her brother, Chad.

What I Like: I like horses. I like the name Taffy. I like Andi. She’s a nice girl. I like the part where she says she’s sorry to Chad and her mommy. I like cowboys. I like that she learns about trusting God. I like the pictures, too. And I like it because it’s more of a big kid book and I get to get user to seeing a book that doesn’t have very many pictures in it.

What I Dislike: I don’t like the part where Andi was naughty because she disobeyed. Because I don’t like that she disobeys.

Overall Rating: Excellent. Except for the part where she disobeys.

From Kristina:

Age Appeal: According to Amazon, 9 to 12, although many kids as young as 5 or so will like this book.

Special Info: Like all of Susan K. Marlow's Circle C Beginnings books, this one is light on what might be called Christian content. Andi does go to Sunday School and pray about her concern for Taffy, and her mother does tell her " should have trusted God to take care of Taffy."
