Rated 5 out of 5 by from Little House On The Prairie A classic book about life in pioneer times. This book gives an insight into the challenges faces by early settlers. It is amazing how many hardships were overcome with faith and perserverance. Something for all ages to learn from.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from A much loved classic As I re-read this classic series I am reminded of my original impression of the Little House books, from my early childhood. I remember my teacher reading this book to my class, introducing me to the pioneers and how they lived all those years ago. I remember having such strong emotions, as the Ingalls family faced danger on the open prairie. If only I could go back and re-live that experience of reading these books for the first time. After all these years I am sad to say that I didn’t quite have the same reaction as I once had about Little House on the Prairie. I attribute this to maturity and a better knowledge of historical time periods. I tried not to read too far into the realities of their circumstances though as I really did want to enjoy the story. I still found it fascinating how they built their home and lived off the land, just like I did as a child. And I also still believe that this is a classic series that should be passed down for many more generations to come.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from ~*~An Epic of Great Proportion~*~ I recently read 'Little House on the Prairie' and was amazed at at how wonderfully written it was. It told the story of Laura Ingalls Wilder, which she herself wrote. Well, I was reading it i couldn't believe how descriptive it was. When I had finished the book I felt as though Laura was a close friend, I felt as though i have known her my entire life. It was written in such a way that I could actually feel what she felt, whenever she was scared, I could feel her fear. I absoulutly loved this book and I recommend it to everyone, doesn't matter your age. I'd give it 10 stars but i could only give it 5. I loved this book, it is my favorite book and I hope many others enjoy this book as much as I have!!
