Beautifully Done!

I first read The Long Winter as a child, about 45 years ago, and it became my favorite of all the Laura Ingalls Wilder books. I still read my Little House books (OK, go ahead and laugh) as an escape from the stress and crazy goings-on in our modern world. I am so glad I decided to try this audio version. Ms. Cherry Jones gives a marvelous performance, and any fans of the Little House series will be sure to enjoy listening. Truly wonderful!

"Be Grateful For What You Have"

"Be Grateful... For what you have", my 7 yr. old daughter summed up after listening to The Long Winter.

The resourcefulness of the families, the town, and the selfless risk Almanzo and Cap took to find, then bring wheat to the starving town was astounding. Even after so much adversity through the long winter, Laura's family and the town were determined to beat the winter and starvation- and they survived. To God be praised!

As a family, we are renewed to choose to be grateful and humbled by the provision and bounty of food, clean water, and many things we have in abundance in our country. We thank God for His faithfulness throughout all generations and seasons of life, weather, and more.

We are grateful for the life lessons this author has taught us throughout the Little House Series. Blessings to all!
