The Little House Collection Viral Books Like so many people, I read and loved these books as a girl. When my son was an infant and I was looking for something to entertain me during his marathon bouts of nursing, I decided to read the series again. I still found it immensely enjoyable, but with one striking difference: When I was a child, Pa Ingalls seemed like the coolest dad on the planet - he played the fiddle, made his own bullets and took his family on all sorts of adventures all over the unsettled west. As an adult, however, I thought Pa came off like a flakey dreamer who put his family through years of hell, always claiming "Caroline! If you just put up with backbreaking labor, mortal danger and starving kids for a few years, just watch! This expanse of desert/marsh/frozen tundra will become the breadbasket of the world and make us rich as kings!" How Ma Ingalls put up with his crazy schemes for so long is a testament t her patience/holy doormat-ness. On re-reading, I thought the series must be missing the volumes "Little House on the San Andreas Fault", "On the Slopes of Angry Volcano" and "By the Toxic Tidepools of Three-Mile Island.". Little House in the Big Woods Little House on the Prairie Farmer Boy On The Banks of Plum Creek By the Shores of Silver Lake The Long Winter Little Town on the Prairie These Happy Golden Years The First Four Years Little House Books. Bestseller Ebook The Little House Collection OK, so I'm a little generous with the whole Little House series. Sue me. But for me, as a child, they WERE "amazing," and here's why.When I was in first grade in a tiny, tiny town in Arkansas, and hating school with the heat of a thousand suns, each member of the class was given identical packages at Christmas time. They were books. I'd been reading for a long time already, so loved a new book...but disappointment set in as my classmates who got their books first opened them before I had a chance to open mine, and they were all the same: A beginner children's book called "The Big Snow." (I think) It was about a kid getting dressed to go out into the snow. On one page, he put on his pants. On the next page, his boots, and so on and so on, FOR AN ENTIRE BOOK. I wanted to cry.And then when I opened MY book, it wasLittle House in the Big Woods. Then I DID cry, because it was a REAL book, and somebody "got" me, and knew I was different, and it was OK.I loved the series as a kid, and after reading each book, would spend lots of time imagining that I had brought Laura from her time to mine, and what it would be like to show her things like cars and telephones and televisions--she'd be AMAZED! And she'd think I was so COOL!Yup. I just reviewed a book as a 7-year-old. You're welcome.
