CIRCLE C STEPPING STONES
Books for Ages 7 – 10 Buy books
Andi is nine years old at last, and her filly Taffy is three–the perfect age for them to finally be a “real” horse and rider. Follow Andi’s new adventures as she meets a new friend who fills the gap Riley’s departure from the Circle C ranch has left. Join Andi when the circus comes to town, when she and Cory set off to pan for gold, and more!
Six books in all, the Stepping Stones include more fun illustrations from Leslie Gammelgaard (Circle C Beginnings), but the books are a step up in reading and story length. For readers who are ready to advance beyond the Beginnings but are not quite ready for the Circle C Adventures.
