Tales from the Circle C Ranch by Susan K. Marlow from Circle C Adventures with Andrea Carter's Tales from the Circle C Ranch Learning Lapbook
This collection of 11 short stories is a perfect companion book to Andi’s (the main character) adventures from the Circle C Beginnings (ages 6-9) and Circle C Adventures (ages 9-14) to an older Andi in the Circle C Milestones (ages 12+). The stories actually came from questions that readers had submitted to the author. My tester has been a HUGE fan of Andi's since the beginning, so this was a great read for her. But, you could read this as a stand alone book, even if you haven't read the others (but, you'll want to...trust me!)
This is great, wholesome, Christian fiction for your daughters. My daughter is wild about horses - so, Andi's life is her dream. I love that these books are teaching character values and history as well. A California ranch in the 1800's is the setting, and there are quite a few things she has learned about this time period by reading these books. You can read a chapter for free here.

This is why I'm a huge fan of lapbooking, you get a hands-on, memorable way to reinforce the learning that they are proud to show off! (ever do that with a book report before?...nope.)
I think this is a great summer project, my tester really enjoyed the book - and loved the lapbook. Lots of learning, no grumbling!
You can purchase the lapbook here for $7.00 (It is also available in print for $12 plus shipping and handling or you can buy a combination of the book and lapbook for $19 plus shipping and handling) You can find all of them here. You can also have your book personalized!
