had to live nd survive in little log cabin during pioneer times In some waysto live nd survive in little log cabin during pioneer times In some ways seems much simpler during this time period but the hard work that was necessary to survive had to be rduous Either you grew garden nd hunted or you didn t eat You chopped wood or didn t have heat for the hard frosty winters There wasn t much entertainment vailable or toys to PLAY WITH CHILDREN HAD DAILY CHORES THAT HAD TO with Children had daily chores that had to done Because Laura s family re devout Christians Sunday s Charlys Epic Fiascos (Charlys Epic Fiascos, are reserved for churchnd Bible nd nothing else There were strict rules I think young readers will be fascinated comparing what life was like then to how they live now This book was extremely thought provoking to me It conjured up thoughts from the past nd present making me think of the differences between my upbringing in the city compared to rural country living now When we moved over decade go I had visions of becoming Storm Warrior (The Grim Series Book 1) a homesteader until I was thrust into the harsh realities of raisingnimals for food I learned really uick that I lacked something others Fry Me a Liver around me didn t the capability to killn nimal that you nurtured nd cared for My first visit to the backyard butcher was like culture shock That day my distant neighbor who s Catalina a homesteader made the comment that my generation will never survive Obviously when it comes down to survival people will do what they have to in contrast to our daynd ge now where it s so convenient to just head to the supermarket nd grab some meat that someone else processed or produce someone else grew In this book they re hunting mainly wild deer but they do have pigs that the children care for The story gets uite graphic sharing the preparation of the meat fter hunting Obviously I m not hunter either but what if it came down to surviving nd the need to feed my family without farmers These re just some of the thoughts that came to mind when reading this with my children Overall we enjoyed this story nd have plans to finish the entire series I lways dmire themes of family nd kindness nd the love this family shares is something special Times spent singing nd listening to Pa s fiddle by the fire were my favorites The children do find ways to have fun during their chores which is nice It s such cozy tale t times written well with beautiful descriptions nd one we ll likely revisit in the future If you re reading this with children I highly recommend the udio companion to the book by Cherry Jones We used it long with the physical books Cherry does wonderful job with the udio nd even sings long It really brings the story to life4 The Little House on the Prairie books bring back so many good memories I have been looking for my box of old books for while now but still haven t found it I m really hoping it didn t get lost when I moved last year There re so many books that I would love to re re This is the first book in the Little House Series nd somewhat overlooked due to the popularity of the second book Little House on the Prairie I ve read both nd liked both this volume being wonderful introduction to Laura nd the Ingalls familly I didn t read this series s child but s n dult I ve come to ppreciate it s beauty nd it s importance in the canon of American Children s Literature Some may say this is too simple for dults to ppreciate Shattered at Sea and starting out it seems that way but the you read the you realize that Ingall s style is perfect for this type of story I m glad I started the seriesnd I look forward to reading Revised January 2018 I started rereading this series because of John Scieszka s bizarre hatred of Little House on the Prairie In Forget Me Not (Mamas Boys, attempting the perfectly noble task of getting young boys to read Scieszka has continuously heaped scorn on that book banishing it to the girl ghetto of the Sweet Valley Highnd American Girls series Putting side the unfair comparison to syndicate titles published for purely commercial reasons his ssesment of Little House Animal Lust as book purely for girls is infuriatingFor one thing gender segregated reading rubs me assesment of Little House s book purely for girls is infuriatingFor one thing gender segregated reading rubs me wrong way For nother thing these books contain spects that Golden Spirit (Carmen Browne, any child might enjoy There s farming hunting construction cooking locust plagues wolf packs riots blizzards tragedy hope family hard work preserverance horses dogs railroads envy lossnd triumph Ignore the sugary sweet insipid television series these books End Game (Jonathan Grave are genuinend engaging Another classic read with the kidsI think s we get into n era where kids don t know A Taste of Sake a time without computersnd easily ccessibl.

start to ppeal less to the young crowd Listening to stories of pioneer life is so far removed from what theyto ppeal less to the young crowd Listening to stories of pioneer life is so far removed from what they it is t times incomprehensible At least when I was Secrets of the Lotus a kid we were notll that far removed from The Evil Genius Guide a simplernd less wired lifestyle I do think my kids enjoyed the time we took to read this together but it was much less easier for them to stay interested in than in some other books we read Willy Wonka nd his fantastic factory nd elevator Bunnicula the vampire rabbit Ralph nd Motorcycle which lso had some old timey content That Was A Bit Hard was bit hard connect to but like Little House I will continue to read to them nd hope to keep the spirit of these classics Pursuit aliveI know that this was the second time reading this I vividly remember the covers the same one from elementary school But before I re read it it would have been impossible for me to tell you nything bout it However s our family got into it I noticed some of the parts were very familiar Apparently I had retained lot of the content but my brain hadn t filed it with Chariot on the Mountain any point of reference I kept lookingt my wife nd kids while I was reading nd saying Hey I remember this But I m lso pretty sure that this is the only book I read in the series I never moved on to Little House on the Prairie nd I never watched the television show Maybe this time I will move on to the second book with my family Seems like I really must t some point to get the full feel of this classic seriesOne major thing to point out Back on Top about the first book that stood out to mend is not really criticism it just is what it is is that there is not whole lot of plot The point of the book is that each chapter shares The Silence of the Chihuahuas a little bit of what life was like for the children while living through the year secluded in the big woods So instead of beginning middle nd end you get series of detailed necdotes bout some spect of life in the cabin I would be interested to know if that is how the rest of the series is s wellThis selection is worth checking out especially if you re looking for something easy to read with the kidsDisclaimer Freuently s of late books nd movies have been putting disclaimers on content with dated cultural depictions While Little House in the Big Woods does seem sweet nd innocent there is song sung by the father with racial slurs I m sure it was representative of what was Final Seconds acceptablet the time but I wanted to make sure that The Czech Legion 1914–20 anyone who might be sensitive to this knowbout it up front An interesting interpretation of what life was like in 1871 There is discussion of what life was like with bsolutely no technology This is book children would definitely warm to than The Divine Circle of Ladies Courting Trouble andult in my opinion Stuck A Bridge Through Time at
