Little House in the Big Woods was a quick and charming read. It is written in the 1930’s from the true stories of the author from when she was 6 years old living in a little house in the big woods with her family. This book takes you through a year of Laura’s life and you get to experience all of the work that goes into surviving as a family in the late 1800’s. Their whole lives revolved around surviving as a family by growing, harvesting and storing what they grew and raised. Laura’s father hunts for animals for meat to store as well. They make practically everything they own since they are not close to a store. As each season changes it felt new and exciting for her because life seemed a little bit different to adjust to the differences in the climate and the daily activities.

It was fun to read it through the eyes of a 6-year old and to be just as fascinated as she was at what it takes to be a family in the late 1800’s.
