If you love great American literature. If you appreciate American history. If you enjoy a well-told story with characters that grow in your heart.
You absolutely must read the Little House on the Prairie series.
Don't be deceived by what you may have heard - these books are not solely for little girls. On the contrary, they're sure to be treasured by anyone who takes in the words from the pages.
The books are full of adventure, heartbreak, suspense, and fascinating details about life in the 1800's. Part-fiction, part autobiography - the books follow the life of Laura Ingalls Wilder from her childhood into adulthood.
"Just one more chapter!" my 5-year-old says each night.
I usually give in without blinking - even if it is past her bedtime.
