HORSE POWER, HONEY, MAPLE SYRUP, CURDS, CHEESE, ETC.
This is a wonderful book. I am middle aged and I loved it. I think kids of any age will love parts of it. Like a Jean Auel book, a lot of time is spent in explaining how to make cheese, gather honey, cook maple syrup and so on. These explaining parts might get a little dry for the average kid. The book is also full of stories as told by Laura's dad. These stories are extremely entertaining for kids and adults. As a whole I believe kids of all ages will like it.
I read the hard back copy years ago. I remember liking the book, but not loving it. Jones made me love it.
I live 45 minutes from Mansfield Mo. That is where Laura and her husband moved and where she wrote all these books. They have kept her house in good shape and they have a museum. It is nothing fancy, I would not drive hundreds of miles out of the way to see it, but if your in the area it is well worth it. It is right off of highway 60.

This reading of Little House kept my seven year old boy and four year old girl quiet for the almost four hours and now they are playing house. They say they would give it six stars if they could. This tired mama would give it six stars too. I liked that the songs were actually sung/played...I grew up on this series but didn't know how all the songs went. So far we've listened to both this and Farmer Boy and will continue repeating them until we get our next credit next month!
