Book Review: Carrie and Bandit by Vicki Watson

A few months ago I reviewed the first book in the Sonrise Stables series, Rosie and Scamper. My girls loved the book and asked about getting the rest of the series, so I was thrilled to get the opportunity to review book 2, Carrie and Bandit!

Carrie and Bandit picks up where the first book left off. In this book, Bandit comes to live at Grandma's farm, and begins to learn to trust again. Carrie is legally adopted by Rosie's family, and just as they are all adjusting to these changes, more changes come when Grandma is hurt, and the family decides to move.

When this book came in the mail, my girls grabbed it and insisted they both got to read it before I could. As MiniMe finished the last page, and closed the book, her first words were "we HAVE to get book 3!!!" Sassy agreed.

When I finally got to read it, I could see why they had enjoyed this book so much, and I'm thrilled that they are so thoroughly enjoying a series of books about other Christian, homeschooled children. This book wove subtle, but powerful lessons about honesty and learning to build relationships with others, into the story without sounding the least bit "preachy". While the children in the story are homeschooled, I think this book would appeal to any Christian family, not just other homeschoolers. The story centers around the girls' adventures with their horses and interactions with their family and friends.

I definitely recommend this series, and we are eagerly waiting for the rest of the series to be available.

You can purchase Carrie and Bandit from Amazon for $9.95 or the Kindle version for $7.99.
