Welcome Erin!
I loved those Little House books when I was a girl. I had hoped to revisit them when my girls were little but we never did. Harry Potter came along when my oldest was 9 or 10. That's what we/she read. my younger one only really read for a bit when she was 14 or 15.

I love them. We live a couple hours from Mansfield, which is where Laura and Almanzo settled. I visited Rocky Ridge farm as a kid and took my mom, aunt and nieces back a few years ago. Just as amazing as I remembered!
