Customer Reviews of Little Town In The Ozarks

Reviews

Rated 4 out of 5 by from It's Awesome!! :) This is an awesome book for anyone who likes to read about the late 1800's. I think grades 5 to 8 would like it best, but anyone can read it. This book is full of the adventures of Rose Wilder as an adventurous girl who is just moveing into town, and still doesn't know if it is the type of life she likes. If you ever get a chance to read this spectacular book, I suggest that you do!
