113 posts | 332 read | 21 to read
Where it all began.Laura Ingalls lives on the edge of the Wisconsin forest with her family. They work long, hard days, and spend their evenings by the fire, listening to stories and music. While they're safe inside, enormous trees tower over their tiny log cabin, and wild bears and wolves roam the woods at night, making their pioneer life both dangerous and exciting.

Listened to this on audiobook with my daughter, we both loved the way it described life back then. We were able to have a good conversation after about the differences in life today and the way it was then. It‘s easy to get lost in Pa‘s descriptions of nature and his stories.

She thought to herself, “This is now.”
She was glad that the cosy house, & Pa & Ma & the firelight & the music, were now.
They could not be forgotten, she thought, because now is now. It could never be a long time ago.

I just started this series again and it reminds of me what it was like to be a child. I miss those days. I imagine the days of Laura and the Ingalls family were awesome. Minus the technology we have today, I think life would have been more fun. Kids were carefree, outside playing instead of being inside on the video game systems or in their cell phones. I wish we could go back to those days. What do you imagine life in that era was like?

I loved the Little House on the Prairie books as a kid and thought the concept of living off the land in the old days was such an interesting concept. I‘m sure kids today will still love imagining that as they read this.

This book has an entertaining plot that children would enjoy. It also has descriptive language that talks about unfamiliar things. The characters are well developed.

This was just an okay book for me. I never read the series when I was a small child, so it doesn't hold the nostalgia that others have. I think if I was read this as a wee child, I would have loved it. 3 out of.

Laura loved to #look at the lamp, with its glass chimney so clean and sparkling, its yellow flame burning so steadily, and its bowl of clear kerosene colored red by the bits of flannel. She loved to look at the fire in the fireplace, flickering and changing all the time, burning yellow and red and sometimes green above the logs, and hovering blue over the golden and ruby coals. #QuotsyApr19

This is a little house in the big city of Dallas, at the arboretum and botanical garden. Yes, I clocked my head on the beam, but it was a fun visit nonetheless.

Back in the day I read this #childhoodfavorite series the way my niece read Harry Potter. When I got to the end of book 9, I‘d go back to book 1 and start all over again.

Somehow I missed reading these when I was younger. I‘m rectifying that now by listening to the series on audio with my three-year-old. I love the detailed descriptions of their life. Hunting, household chores, dangerous animals in the woods, all told from a child‘s point of view. Even simple life becomes fascinating. Cherry Jones narrates the books and she‘s just perfect!

#Sassafras and I finished this as one of our bedtime reads. His favorite part was when Pa had the threshing machine come help harvest wheat. He was amazed that Laura had never seen a machine before. So he began listing all the machines she hadn‘t seen...it was a long list. 3/5⭐️s

Reread this childhood classic just as the weather started to turn which was the perfect way to experience it. A great reminder of how much I‘ve always loved this. Very evocative of a different time and living style. Makes you feel like you‘re right there experiencing pioneer life.

robinb I‘ve always wanted to learn how to quilt! My grandma quilted using an old-fashioned quilting frame that she hung from the ceiling. She gave each of her grandkids a quilt upon high school graduation and other special occasions. I feel blessed to have 2 or 3 of hers to pass along. 13mo

1. My reading companion, Moses.
2. Wisconsin. Boring, I know, and not a world created by her. I pretty much only read historical fiction 🙄
3. Plain old ice water all day.
4. My wife and I visit the lake where I grew up every summer and watch the sunset. Although we‘ve missed the last couple.
5. Drizzly rain, for sure. It‘s my favorite kind of weather.

Blaire I loved this as a kid and recently tried reading it with my 6 year old, but the first chapter was too much for him (he couldn‘t stomach the descriptions of how they had to kill the pig for meat). It was more graphic than I recalled from childhood. Will try again when he‘s older. 2y

I was excited because this was set in Wisconsin, and I‘ve heard great things about Laura Ingalls Wilder. Then I read this and was kind of bored. Didn‘t enjoy the writing style. No plot to speak of. Just life in the woods of Wisconsin in all four seasons and how they lived day to day from little Laura‘s perspective.

Day 20: Set
Regrettably when we were first married and didn‘t have a lot of space for books I got rid of a lot of my childhood collection, but couldn‘t bring myself to part with this set. I loved these books, especially since the heroine shared my name. :-) #Ampersand2018

That time when Aunt Eliza's dog wouldn't let her leave the house during winter while her husband was away, and he comes back to find large panther #tracks circling the house. 😨

(Though I've read that while referred to as panthers, Laura actually meant cougars ... Not sure about this.)

batsy @BarbaraBB I had an older Puffin edition that fell apart. This is the replacement which is also showing its age (and mine) 😂 2y
kalinichta Yeah, it should be cougars. I don't think we have panthers in North America. (What is called a Florida Panther is categorized as puma, not panthera.) 2y
batsy @kalinichta That's great to know, thank you! I was just thinking about how odd it would be to find a panther in the "Big Woods" and was going to look it up ? 2y
readinginthedark There are no panthers in the US, but I don‘t think it would have been unusual for her to call them that. Cougar, puma, mountain lion, etc are used interchangeably in different parts of the country, and that might have included panther at the time. 2y
kalinichta @batsy I am always happy to make with the Googles and play the know-it-all. 🤓 2y

This book made me so hungry! The first part is about hunting and butchering. After Christmas, it‘s all about collecting maple syrup, harvesting, and cheese making (the illustration is Laura helping Ma separate the curds and whey). The description of Ma making hulled corn had me drooling! 💦 Make sure your pantry is fully stocked when you read it yourself 😉🧀🌽

The only problem with trying to fall asleep while listening to the audiobook is that the novel is all about food! There‘s the hunting, the smoking, churning, and of course...the butchering! The description of making Head cheese was particularly graphic. I wish I had started counting how many times the narrator said “grease” or “greasy” in her odd way. Now I‘m awake and hungry!! 🧀 🍖 🥓
