This is another childhood favorite that I have passed down to my four children. My oldest is only seven, but all of them (the boys included) love to have me read the chapters to them.
And the fact that these books (the entire series) are based upon the author’s real life makes it a history lesson in fiction. They are able to see the things we do on our farm today, and they understand just how hard it was for Laura and her family.
This entire series of books is a must-read for boys and girls. All children can learn valuable lessons and skills from these books, so I definitely recommend it.
