4.0 out of 5 stars Little Short Stories, July 7, 2000
This review is from: Little House in the Big Woods (Little House, No 1) (Paperback)
Little short stories, that is what Little House in the Big Woods is. Each chapter is a story about the true life Laura Ingalls Wilder, and how her ma taught her and her sisters how to bake and clean and be good children, and how their pa killed animals so that they could have food to eat.
One chapter goes into detail on how after Charles killed a boar, he skinned it, preserved it in salt, and then smoked it in a little smokehouse he had built, no bigger than their outhouse. They used the skins for clothes and shoes, made a little baseball type toy out of the pig's bladder, and fried the tail. It's very educational, if you ask me, which is why, along with the Mandie series of books, I also homeschooled my daughter on Little House in the Big Woods. Every chapter could be read in a short period of time, and each chapter brought a new perspective of what little Laura Ingalls did when she was a little girl.
One chapter is about Sundays, and how they baked and did all their cleaning up on Saturday, because on the Lord's day, Sunday, you were not allowed to do anything at all that was considered work. And believe you me, baking and cleaning up a house is a heavy-duty chore.
Everybody should read this book, and it is highly recommended by me.
