REVIEW: "The Little House books tell the story of a little pioneer girl and her family as they traveled by covered wagon across the Midwest. Laura Ingalls Wilder's classic books, illustrated with Garth Williams' timeless artwork, have been cherished by millions of readers ever since they were first published over sixty years ago."

Summary: This is about a little boy who lives with his father, mother, brother and two sisters. They live on a farm where they take care of everything their self. The kids have chores to do, Almanzo and his brother have to help take care of the animals with their father. His sisters help with dinner and the family comes in and they all sit together and eat dinner. This is the story of Almanzo's life as a little boy on a farm. He loves being a Farm boy.

Personal Reaction: Great book. I wish life was more like this now. The book shows the family getting along, working together, and spending time together as a happy family.

1.) We could talk about things the children could do to help their parents out and find ways to spend time together.

2.) Work as a class to build a small farm made of little scraps and things we find around the classroom or at home, that we do not need. Maybe use the milk and juice cartons to make the house and glue a few together to make the stables. We can make animals out of clay. ( )

A book about what life was like as a child for Almazo (a boy) in a New York farm in the pioneer days of the late 1800s. Great illustrations and a good way to open eyes to what live was like in the past.
