I know that some individuals have expressed concern about certain concepts (such as discipline methods or gender roles) that are now considered relatively unacceptable or archaic, and thus these folks have given the book a poor review. I would put forth that since these incidents are few and far between in the book, parents might actually use them as a *talking point* with their child! If you don't agree with spankings - discuss it! If it isn't fair that Laura can't play like a boy - have a dialogue with your child about why! No child is "too young to understand" these topics if their parent presents it in an age-appropriate manner. My mother would probably have gutted and thrown in a river anyone who laid a hand on us kids (even as a spank), but when it came up in the book, it was such a non-issue that I'd forgotten it until a recent re-reading! Mom likely expressed her relief that it was no longer okay to spank misbehaving kids, I expressed my little kid joy about not having to ever be spanked, maybe she had me say what I thought would have been a better way to handle it, and we moved on to more interesting parts of the book.
Honestly, this is a classic. Read it first, if you're unsure about sharing it - but I'd say that to any parent about any book. I don't think this is an objectionable title at all.
It is well performed by Cherry Jones with lots in inflection and changes in voices. I also love that it was recorded as an unabridged version.
I love that my children (7 years old, 4 years old and 14 months) are getting literature instead of just popular music and news in the morning before school. This has taken place of DVD's in the morning for our family. I would recommend it to anyone looking for family literature for all ages.
It talks about Pa and his stories and Ma with her housecleaning and cooking.
I would recommend this book to anyone who likes nostalgic sort of books also.
