Book Review: Little House on the Prairie Series

Ya, ya, I know. Most people read the Little House books when they're in 4th grade. But I don't like reading, and it took me a while to find the WHOLE series, which I wanted to read at the same time, in order. All that to say that I just read the series, and I thought it was great. Personally, I prefer non-fiction books or realistic fiction books - I'm not into Sci-Fi, Harry Potter, or anything like that. So the Little House Series was a perfect pick for me in the first place. However, I honestly think that the perspective of the books is perfect! Laura Ingalls Wilder really knew how to just write about simple, family stories. And to think, I've gone my whole life thinking that the show followed the books exactly. Ya.right. As much as I love both the show and the books, they're totally different! Anyways. Just a short little post to let you know that, yes, I like Little House on the Prairie - both the books and the show :)

P.S. Okay, so the show actually gets me out of bed every morning - it starts at 10:00 and I promised myself I could only watch it if I got out of bed, showered, and got dressed by the time it started. But it's a great, sappy, cheesy show to start my day out with :)

  1. I didn't know you had a blog, Kristen! Your dad mentioned you had recently read through this series. You think it's not proper for a 15-year-old to read the Little House books? Well I'm almost done reading On the Banks of Plum Creek to Miles - ha! I think one fun thing about having kids is that it gives you a rightful excuse to go back and read all your favorite children's books!
