it was amazing

I literally have read this entire set at least 10 times throughout my childhood. I love how Laura Ingalls Wilder made the simplest things sound wonderful: such as receiving a shiny new penny and peppermint stick for Christmas, singing around the fire while pa played the fiddle, the joy of a new dress - hand sewn out of fresh calico, and homemade biscuits. Her life was full of challenges and great hardship, yet her positive attitude permeates her narrative. I gained such an appreciation of our pioneer and frontier ancestors. I have enjoyed reading these to my children at bedtime.

Definitely a MUST read!!

BTW - these classic books bear little resemblance (thank goodness!) to the "Little House in the Prairie" TV series other than the names of the characters.
