10/10 sips of milk from a new tin cup on Christmas.

Is this Laura Ingalls Wilder’s best book? No, that’s Farmer Boy. #Team Snacks. But it is one of my favorites.

Wow - How did I not remember how intense this book is? Though my kids are now past the age to be enthralled by this series of children's books, I decided to re-read some of them. This family overcame SO many hardships. It was an enjoyable read, reminding me of how much easier life is now in so many ways but also of how grateful people were for the simplest of gifts when hardships abounded. ( )

How can these books continue being soooo good? I can't wait to see what happens in the next book. Loved Plum Creek especially the part about the grasshoppers, the way she described them. ( )
