While Laura Ingalls grows up in a little house on the western prairie, Almanzo Wilder is living on a big farm in New York State. Here Almanzo and his brother and sisters help with the summer planting and fall harvest. In winter there is wood to be chopped and great slabs of ice to be cut from the river and stored. Time for fun comes when the jolly tin peddler visits, or best of all, when the fair comes to town.

This is Laura Ingalls Wilder's beloved story of how her husband Almanzo grew up as a farmer boy far from the little house where Laura lived.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A favourite! Even though this book didn't really "go" with the series, it was still one of my favourites in the series. We get a different insight into another child, Almanzo, who lives on a farm in New York. A great perspective change and a nice break from the prairies we see with Laura.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from How can you not love it? I have read the Little House series over and over since I was in grade 6. I had received the box set and couldn't stop reading. Farmer Boy is one of the best books in the series because it deals with Manly, Laura's future husband, when he is just a boy. He is a true country boy through and through.
