Crooked Creek Ranch
by Amy Drorbaugh
My 7, 5, and 3 yrs olds LOVED this book, and I did as well! It had us laughing. The kids begged to read the next chapter after each one.
The story was engaging, and encouraged creativity and adventure outdoors. It also gave a look into the way people used to live. We can’t wait for the next book!
My children absolutely loved this book! We read it over the summer as a read a loud for fun and loved it! Beautiful Read
NEVER A DULL MOMENT!
My just turned nine year old loved this book she said it was exciting to read and she said she read extra to find out what happened next. She wants to know if there are anymore of these?? We live on a cattle ranch and she loves books that are similar to her own experiences. She thought this an awesome book (her words). Thanks for all the good uplifting books!!
Love Love Love
Such an awesome story about children playing in nature and also cautions about the dangers of wildlife. Shows how communities come together to enjoy each others company as well as help each other out.
Reads a bit like Little House on the Prairie
An adorable book! Ma and Pa and their “littles” live on a ranch in California. The adventures they get into feel like reading a new story of Little House on the Prairie. The stories were inspired by the author’s mother’s childhood. I love these types of stories because they emphasize a strong family bond, great sibling relationships that are healthy and not “bickering” as so many other books these days have. Great read I highly recommend!
“Look! Look over there!” . . . There she was . . . a big mama skunk. And right behind her, in a line, were three roly-poly, fluffy little skunk babies. “Aren’t they so cute!” squealed Sara, clapping her hands together. “Let’s catch them!” There’s never a dull moment when you live on an isolated cattle ranch in the hills of Southern California. Tag along with Sara, Levi, and Tommy as they have hilarious and fun adventures. Based on true events from the childhood of the author’s mother, these heart-warming stories reveal a glimpse into rural life in the early 1900s and focus on the unbreakable bond of family.
