This one is a "keeper", not a "borrow from the library". I suggest that you get it and read it. You are going to fall in love with Little Britches.
Was this review useful? [...]. Thank you
Ralph, the main character is so genuine and relatable. His family is loving, and his father is so kind and wise I think he may even displace Pa Ingalls as my favorite children's lit dad! The chapter where he steals the chocolate bar is absolutely priceless. My kids and I had the best discussion about that chapter.
We are almost finished with the second book in the series now, and Ralph feels like an old friend now. I'm quite sure we will read the whole series.
The book was fun, we all enjoyed it, then she gave us all a surprise one day telling us that Mr. Moody, the author, was going to come visit and read to us.
For reading time, a student set up a semi circle of chairs in front of our desks with one chair facing the semi circle for the reader.
On this day, she asked me to do it. I felt honored as I set it all up, finishing with the reader’s chair and as I was going back to my desk all the other students started laughing at me because I had set up the reading chair facing forward to, like the others so the reader would not be facing the audience. The teacher turned it 180 degrees so it was like normal as the laughter settled.
She then brought Mr. Moody into the room at the back and introduced him and told us he would read some.
When he arrived to the chair to read from the first thing he did was grab the chair by the top, spin it 180 degrees and sat on it like a horse and then he read some of the story of his life to us.
Thank you, sir, your writings were a tremendous inspiration to my life. The part where your father taught you his belief “that a man is only as good as his word” really stuck out. I believe it, I’ve strayed here and there but I try to stay on course.
South Elementary is now named Ralph Moody Elementary.
I bought a new copy to donate to a charity that gives books to needy families to encourage children to develop reading habits. I hope someone wears it out.
