After writing about 12-year-old Andi and her horse Taffy in the Circle C Adventures book series, Susan Marlow started hearing parents ask if she had any books for younger readers. “I decided it would be fun to create a similar series about Andi and her family for children ages six to eight,” Marlow says, explaining why she created Circle C Beginnings. “It’s fun to hear that even readers of the older series like to go back and see what Andi was like at age six.”

Andi’s Circle C Christmas (Kregel) is the sixth book in the Beginnings series. “I hope young readers come away with the desire to think of others more than themselves,” Marlow says, “especially during this season when we celebrate Christ’s birth.”
