Ingalls Wilder is a story that tells of Laura s early childhood and upbringing in Wisconsin during the 1870s Readers learn how her family had to live and survive in a little log cabin during pioneer times In some ways life seems much simpler during this time period but the hard work that was necessary to survive had to be arduous Either you British Jihadism grew aarden and hunted or you didn t eat You chopped wood or didn t have heat for the hard frosty winters There wasn t much entertainment available or toys to play with Children had daily chores that had to be done Because Laura s family are devout Christians Sunday s are reserved for church and Bible and 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 and present making me think of the differences between my upbringing in the city compared to rural country living now When we moved over a decade ago I had visions of becoming a homesteader until I was thrust into the harsh realities of raising animals for food I learned really uick that I lacked something others around me didn t the capability to kill an animal that you nurtured and cared for My first visit to the backyard butcher was like culture shock That day my distant neighbor who s a homesteader made the comment that my Virgin Widow generation will never survive Obviously when it comes down to survival people will do what they have to in contrast to our day and age now where it s so convenient to just head to the supermarket andrab some meat that someone else processed or produce someone else Wife in Exchange grew In this book they re hunting mainly wild deer but they do have pigs that the children care for The storyets uite raphic sharing the preparation of the meat after hunting Obviously I m not a hunter either but what if it came down to surviving and the need to feed my family without farmers These are just some of the thoughts that came to mind when reading this with my children Overall we enjoyed this story and have plans to finish the entire series I always admire themes of family and kindness and the love this family shares is something special Times spent singing and 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 a cozy tale at times written well with beautiful descriptions and one we ll likely revisit in the future If you re reading this with children I highly recommend the audio co.

(Little House in the Big Woods) EBOOK/PDF ¹ Laura Ingalls Wilder
Ld when we ot to the part where little Laura is sitting with her sister Mary there s this charming illustration of the sisters with their dolls I pointed out to my daughter that Mary had a rag doll made by her mother but Laura had only a corncob for a doll I explained that s how things were back then Children didn t have as many things as you have now I think my daughter was chomping on a big wad of Night And Day gum at this moment and she pointed at the corncob doll and said That That piece of corn was her doll I said Yep Can you imagine that being all you had She shook her head and said Damn I looked at her and said Damn That s adult language honey Where did you learn that word She said The other day Mommy you said to Daddy I can tet anything on this damn computer to work Sigh Ma and Pa would be so proud wouldn t they This is the first book in the Little House Series and somewhat overlooked due to the popularity of the second book Little House on the Prairie I ve read both and liked both this volume being a wonderful introduction to Laura and the Ingalls familly I didn t read this series as a child but as an adult I ve come to appreciate it s beauty and it s importance in the canon of American Children s Literature Some may say this is too simple for adults to appreciate 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 Tennessee Takedown / Ravens Hollow glad I started the series and 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 attempting the perfectly noble task ofetting young boys to read Scieszka has continuously heaped scorn on that book banishing it to the The Cowboy Takes a Bride (The Bridal Bid girlhetto of the Sweet Valley High and American Girls series Putting aside the unfair comparison to syndicate titles published for purely commercial reasons his assesment of Little House as a book purely for Michaels Discovery (The Devaneys girls is infuriatingFor one thingender segregated reading rubs me the wrong way For another thing these books contain aspects that 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 loss and triumph Ignore the sugary sweet insipid television series these books are enuine and engaging My two younger daughters recently discovered the Little House series and are speeding through the books this summer As I am in between books and wanted to avoid a reading rut I decided to revisit the first book in the series for myself As I am always on the lookout for uality children s books I spent a few hours rereading the beginning of a series that I had enjoyed when I was my daughters age Little House in the Big Woods begins the classic children s saga that follows Laura Ingalls Wilder on her journey from childhood to marriage It features a wide eyed five year old irl who has her entire future ahead of her at a thrilling time in American h The Little House on the Prairie books bring back so many Life Changing Smiles good memories I have been looking for my box of old books for awhile now but still haven t found it I m really hoping it didn tet lost when I moved last year There are so many books that I would love to re read I m not sure why I didn t read these to my daughter I think she had so many books that we just never Innocent Sins (Harlequin Presents, got around to it Little House in the Big Woods is the first book of the series and will always be my favorite but I did enjoy all of the books in the collection I tried to find the edition on here that looked most like what I remember and I think this is the same cover that was on my book I can clearly my mom reading it to me before I could read myself Sitting on my bed next to her watching as she read Once I was able to read it myself I picked it up again to read to her watching as her fingers slid underneath the words and helping me with the hard ones She mentioned the other day that it s one of her favorite memories too I loved all of the characters Laura Ma Pa Carrie and Mary as well as many others I dreamt of living in that little cabin in the woods and desperately wanted Laura Ingalls as a best friend The fun and adventures these children had along with their dog Jack was entertaining every time it was read to me or by me When it was turned into a TV show I was escastic I remember it was on every Sunday at 6pm on Channel 2 I was allowed to watch it while sitting in my dads lazy boy recliner and nothing could tear me away If I can t find my old books I will definitley buy another collection as I would love to re read them at some point Even writing this review has brought backreat memories of these wonderful stories 3 An interesting interpretation of what life was like in 1871 There is discussion of what life was like with absolutely no technology This is a book children would definitely warm to than an adult in my opinion This book was cute but kind of read like an instructional Only a Whisper guide for six year olds on how to survive in the Wisconsin winter and i m not sure where there s a market for instructionaluides for six year olds on how to survive in the Wisconsin winte. Ma made her own cheese and maple sugar All night long the wind howled lonesomely but Pa played his fiddle and sang to his little irl.
Mpanion to the book by Cherry Jones We used it along with the physical books Cherry does a wonderful job with the audio and even sings along It really brings the story to life4 Another classic read with the kidsI think as we et into an era where kids don t know a time without computers and easily accessible technology books like Little House in the Big Woods will start to appeal less to the young crowd Listening to stories of pioneer life is so far removed from what they know it is at times incomprehensible At least when I was a kid we were not all that far removed from a simpler and 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 and his fantastic factory and elevator Bunnicula the vampire rabbit Ralph and his Motorcycle which also had some old timey content that was a bit hard to connect to but nothing like Little House I will continue to read to them and hope to keep the spirit of these classics aliveI know that this was the second time reading this I vividly remember the cover as the same one from elementary school But before I re read it it would have been impossible for me to tell you anything about it However as our family Brooklyn's Song got into it I noticed some of the parts were very familiar Apparently I had retained a lot of the content but my brain hadn t filed it with any point of reference I kept looking at my wife and kids while I was reading and saying Hey I remember this But I am also pretty sure that this is the only book I read in the series I never moved on to Little House on the Prairie and 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 at some point toet the full feel of this classic seriesOne major thing to point out about the first book that stood out to me and is not really a criticism it just is what it is is that there is not a whole lot of plot The point of the book is that each chapter shares a little bit of what life was like for the children while living through the year secluded in the big woods So instead of a beginning middle and end you Men Are Like Waffles--Women Are Like Spaghetti Devotional Study Guide get a series of detailed anecdotes about some aspect of life in the cabin I would be interested to know if that is how the rest of the series is as wellThis selection is worth checking out especially if you are looking for something easy to read with the kidsDisclaimer Freuently as of late books and movies have been putting disclaimers on content with dated cultural depictions While Little House in the Big Woods does seem sweet and innocent there is a song sung by the father with racial slurs I am sure it was representative of what was acceptable at the time but I wanted to make sure that anyone who might be sensitive to this know about it up front Irew up with the Little House on the Prairie tv series but I didn t read any of the actual books until my son was about seven We read all nine books together and before we knew what was happening I was wearing a bonnet and we d traveled to all of the Laura Ingalls Wilder historic sites in South Dakota Minnesota and Missouri I can only bless my son for his patience and Plain Jane The Hotshot grace that hot summer day as he stood politely over by a tree while I had an animated conversation and shared some hot tears with Laura at herrave in Mansfield MissouriWhen I read the series to my middle child she d already seen the photos of her mother s and brother s Laura Ingalls adventures and she was ready to don the bonnet and aprons but I told her she needed to wait until her little sister had experienced the books and then we d Family of Her Dreams go together as a familyThis past week marked my youngest child s first exposure to the series this book being the perfect selection also for our Wisconsin entry of our Kids Read Across America projectTo be honest I didn t know how this particular reading experience wasoing to Blackmailed Into the Italians Bed go This child my third child is my Janis Joplin She moves around uite a bit while I m reading to her often humming or singing under her breath and she s the most challenging of my kids to engageFor the first several chapters of this book she kept saying So thatirl with the brown hair She s telling the story When I explained that yes this is Laura s story and it s a true story she would say So she s still a Girls Night Out girl When I explained that no she s not airl any and she is in fact dead now my daughter became horrified and wondered how a dead woman wrote this story I m not sure why we Bound To Ransom (Bound Series Book 2) got stuck in this loop but we did For a couple of nightsEventually the story completely took over her senses and she absolutely loved it Loved it so much in fact she demanded to know when we wereoing to Laura s house like Ryan did when he was little She also said she doesn t want to read any states in our challenge she just wants to read this series Wow Can you believe after all of these years that this story of pioneer life in the 1870s is still so engaging to a modern child even despite the descriptions of Pa hunting and slaughtering animals for dinnerThis will be my favorite memory of reading this classic to my youngest chi. Ura Ingalls lived with her Pa and Ma and her sisters Mary and Baby Carrie in a snug little house built of logs Pa hunted and trapped.
