  1. I thought I was Laura when I was a child. I still have all my books. My daughter is four. I think we will start reading these too! I am also collecting all the seasons of the show on DVD. I hope she will enjoy Little House as much as I did.

    Great post! It sounds like you have some little pioneers on your hands!

  2. LOL on your kids and diseases! THat’s awesome.

    I just read these books for the first time through last year – and I loved them! It’s fabulous that you are introducing them to YOUR kids at such a young age!

  3. My son (age 7) loves audio books as well. He also really liked the Adventures in Odyssey stories as well. They are a great thing to listen to when he’s playing in his room, and they are a great way to keep him from wanting to watch tv as well.

  4. I adored Laura Ingalls as a child. I read the books until they fell apart and I loved the TV show.

    Just yesterday we were at the thrift store and I found two of the books and bought them for Bria. I hope she loves them as much as I did, but I think I should find Little House in the Big Woods first. Glad to hear how much your girls love them!

  5. I love this post. My girls love these three audiobooks too, and we own the first two.

    For a long time after Older Daughter acquired ‘Prairie’ for her birthday, she wouldn’t listen to it again. The episode where Jack is temporarily lost was too much for her. But she overcame it, and now they listen CONSTANTLY.

    I confess, I love them too. This morning as I was drying my hair, I heard the episode where Mr Edwards meets Santa, and teared up (AGAIN).

  6. What a wonderful post. Your girls are gaining so much in addition to the love of a good story and books. The LIW books to celebrate the beauty of a good family.

    Thanks for stopping by my blog today. I finished Plum Creek and will have my review up tomorrow.

    BTW, my daughter is reading them to her girls and my mother and I are also re-reading them – four generations. They are timeless. Thanks for sharing.

  7. Your girls are precious. 🙂 We JUST started our first Little House book as our lunchtime readaloud last week (the Big Woods). My girls are enjoying it because it’s about 3 sisters, just like we have at home … but I would love it if it would turn into imaginative play like yours have done. (I’m guessing you haven’t wanted any of the TV series with your yet, right? I’m looking forward to doing that with my girls down the road, but I’m thinking that at five, my oldest is still too young).

  8. Little House books are great for so much history and vocabulary. I vividly remember a teacher being flabbergasted because I knew what sorrel was. My daughters, however, would not read the books. Glad yours likes them!
