I grew up watching the Little House on the Prairie. I also had access to the Little House Books Boxed Set.
The books had so much more information than what was available on TV.
Reading these books were a joy to me as a child. If I took time to think about it, they probably did a lot to influence me as an adult. One thing I looked forward to when I found my wife was pregnant was reading these with my child. William is almost old enough to enjoy reading this little house box set with me. I know I am excited to one day get to share these stories with him.
These books, La’mour westerns, and My Side of the Mountain are all things that I dearly want to share with him.
I would imagine that many children would enjoy and benefit from reading these books. Actually, I think all children would benefit from reading almost any book with their parents.
I don’t want to go back to the “good ole days” as I like air conditioning and antibiotics, but I do have some nostalgia for simpler times, and do learn a lot about how our early pioneers did things.
