Little House in the Big Woods by Laura Ingalls Wilder

Ana Batts loaned me this book on CD during my May visit to Arkansas. I'm not sure how much the boys got out of it, but I know I enjoyed it!
I listened to this book in the car on the way to and from Indiana for vacation. On the way there, I relistened to CD1 on the way up since Dad and I had already tried to listen to it before. We finished the book on the way back home.
I really enjoyed this book. I have seen the TV series, but it was nice to hear these characters described again. It was fun to hear Mary described as the perfect one, since I had always viewed her in that way. I found the use of third person a bit odd since I already knew Laura was the author and main character.
I plan to listen to the rest of these books this summer with Dad and the boys.


  1. I would LOVE to listen to those books on tape. How wonderful! Okay, I am soon to order some English books from Amazon because they are few and far between here in Spain. If you could recommend me one book what would you recommend? Is that a tough question or what??!!

  2. Brooke, I just saw this comment. I'm so sorry I'm late! I haven't read this one yet, but it has rave revies and the book is about to come out: The Help. I am a big fan of buying books on tape for the accent. If you just meant one to read, the I would choose...Daddy Long-Legs by Jean Webster so you can pass it on to Caroline in a few years.
