As with all of Laura Ingalls Wilder books this one is excellent. A wonderful way for children (and adults!) to glimpse into the lives of the pioneers.

I have read this series countless times, to myself and to my children. It's a joy every time! However, it is scarier reading now than when I was a child: blizzards, hunger, raging rivers, fireballs from the sky. As a child, it sounded adventurous. As an adult, I realize how much this family overcame and how dangerous their lives really were.

What a simpler time, though not an easy frontier life, this book illustrates family life, being safe & wholesome reading. We love those twinkles in pa's eyes.

This book never came with a charm. SURPRISE! This is a fun and engaging story! The way the girls are so excited over finding little colorful beads that the indians left behind is adorable. The "possibly dangerous" encounters with the indians, the neighborly charecters, and mostly the end......I'll let you read, but it says "Carry on!"

I just read this book to my daughters for their first time. They absolutely loved it! I read the whole series when I was in late elementary school and middle school, and again as an adult, and what I enjoyed then was the descriptions of the Ingalls' family life. My daughters enjoyed that aspect, too. Now as a parent, I have a greater appreciation for the courage of Pa and Ma Ingalls to live the lives of pioneers. My daughters and I have moved on to the next book in the series, "On the Banks of Plum Creek". Our evening reading time is one of the best parts of the day!

A side note for those who think this book (and series) is just for girls. My boys (ages 8 and 11) love these books.

What's not to love? Indians, Instructions on building your own cabin, hunting, wandering down trails finding stuff, digging wells, HUGE wolves, ... All things my boys love.

If you you have boys, don't dismiss this series.

The detailed descriptions are amazing. You feel as if you are there with Ma, Pa, and the girls as they are going about their adventurous life.

Beautiful Gift Copy!
Pa Ingalls is tired of how crowded the big woods are getting. So he decides to sell the house and move west with his family. Just before the ice breaks, the family loads up their wagon and heads out. They cross the Mississippi River and then head south, settling two days away from Independence, Missouri. Now they have to build a new house and survive the wilderness. Meanwhile, Laura is anxious to see a papoose. And with all the Indians in the area, she may get her chance.
This is a charming book. It's almost a collection of short stories with many chapters being a self-contained event. Still, through these pages, we get a good picture of life on the American frontier 130 years ago. The book gives plenty of detail about their everyday life without getting bogged down. And it is interesting. Frankly, some of the chapters are so harrowing I felt my pulse quicken. Often I found myself shaking my head in awe at what the Ingalls dealt with on a daily basis. This is a good way to make anyone appreciate just what we have today.
These books are still popular 70 years after they were first written for good reason. They are an entertaining and enlightening look at a bygone era.

I have read the whole Little House series, and loved every moment. I kinda of hate getting ride of the books, but I know my boys wont read them. So instead of letting them waste, I'm passing them on. The books are different from the tv series. As much as I love the Tv series, the books are much better. This series is a classic and should be read by every child, well at least every girl...lol.

This book, originally published in 1935 is what the public would call a classic american book. The size of the font is the perfect size for any reader. This book has been a classic for over 70 years as it entertains girls and boys, and this classic shall entertain for 70 more.

An amazing story of pioneer life and courage. My only reservation with the text is the way that Native Americans are sometimes portrayed/spoken of . . . clearly there was deep-seated prejudice during the time period, though Wilder herself does not seem impacted by it.

The Ingalls move to Kansas because of all the settling and cutting of trees in the woods where they had lived previously. You get to understand how life on the road would be like in that time. This is such an adventurous and historical account! I learned how houses were built back then, how people treated one another, how the Native Americans were viewed in that time by various people, and likewise how they viewed settlers. It was very educational and filled with adventure and fun.

As the second book in the Laura Ingalls Wilder series, it continues their journey from the big woods to the prairie. If you liked the first book, you MUST read the others!

These books are a must-read for the whole family! I love how the author explains and describes so many things so clearly. I recommend all of the Little House books as read-alouds for littles, and as great stories for grown-ups, too.
