Kregel - 2nd Shipment (TOS Crew Review)

My Final Crew Review.  Wow.  Who knows what the future holds, but for now, I am going to step back from homeschool reviews and concentrate on things around here.  Being a part of the Crew has been an amazing blessing, and I am so grateful to go out with a BANG!

The second book we received from Kregel Publications was called Andrea Carter and the Trouble With Treasure by Susan Marlow. Here is the summary from the publishers: "When innocent horseplay temporarily lands Andi and her friends in jail, they decide that a trip into the mountains will leave their troubles far behind. Accompanied by big brother Mitch and armed with a map showing old gold diggings, they canít wait to strike it rich. What could be better than two weeks of camping and horseback riding?
But instead of gold they find heaps of trouble — trouble that leaves Mitch gravely wounded. Andi needs help fast. But who can she trust? And what good is a bag of gold when her beloved brother lies near death in the middle of nowhere?"

This is a story most kids can get into, with characters you can relate to, and it was an enjoyable read.  The story would appeal to girls and boys alike, and it keeps you hanging at the end of each chapter.  In fact, there were days my kids didn't want to listen (just because they wanted to go outside, though) and I wanted to keep reading, so it was often me begging to continue the story! :-)

I highly recommend the Kregel Publications books, and this latest book is a great read!  To see what my fellow Crew Mates had to say, click here.

  1. Hi, Mini-van Mom, :-)
    Thanks for taking the time to review TWT. I SO hear you on the spring nice days. There should be a sign in every mom's house:

    Glad you enjoyed the book. Winter time is "read-a-loud" time!
