“Based on the real-life experiences of the author, this series introduces a new generation of readers to life on the American frontier. I couldn’t stop reading it! I recommend this book for people who love history.” (Brightly)
From the Back Cover
The adventures continue for Laura Ingalls and her family as they leave their little house in the Big Woods of Wisconsin and set out for Kansas. They travel for many days in their covered wagon until they find the best spot to build their little house on the prairie. Soon they are planting and plowing, hunting wild ducks and turkeys, and gathering grass for their cows. Sometimes pioneer life is hard, but Laura and her folks are always busy and happy in their new little house.

I started giving these books to my grandchild, and at first we read them together, then she started reading them on her own. Now, we watch the old television series together, and it brings back memories of our days reading together. We both love the television series as much as we do the books, they portray the life as it was. Maybe not as primitive, but certainly as children , they accept the hard work and the limited income the Wilder's have. This family is a superb e ample if a hapoy family, their ups and downs, and they have many, and the manger in which the family faces each obstacle. An excellent example of a true family life.
I purchased this on Kindle and was very pleased. The illustrations are the same as the print version. You can navigate through chapters easily. All in all a book perfectly formatted for Kindle.
What Reads Want to Know:
A classic story from Laura Ingalls Wilder about the early life of her husband Almanzo Wilder living near Malone New York. The story centers around Almanzo and his brother Royal and his sisters Eliza Jane and Alice. (Laura his eldest sibling was 22 and living elsewhere and his youngest sibling Pearly Day was not yet born). Almanzo's love of horses is a center theme of the book which takes you through the seasons in a farmer boy's year. What amazes me is the lack of waste back then. Nothing was wasted. Oat straws were used to make summer hats, apple cores were saved to make vinegar, ashes were saved to make lye soap, and the fat from the pig slaughter is used to make tallow for candles and other uses.
Unlike the Ingalls family, Almanzo's were for their part quite well off. They had large barns, a nice house with a parlor, upstairs bedrooms, and an icehouse. The farm sat on a large track of fertile farmland. Father bred driving horses as well as farming and Mother wove cloth for the clothing they wore. If you read just one chapter.... read "Keeping House". Such a funny story unto itself it will make you want to read the whole story. In conclusion, a delightful book from my childhood that can now be shared via Kindle.
Don't listen to the people who say it's boring because it's definitely not. It just for older kids. Please don't make reviews saying "my 5 year old got bored" of course they would they're 5 at least wait till they can read on their own.
Kids 10+ it's great. Girls may like it more.
