Growing up, I loved Little House on the Prairie series, both the children’s books and the television show. My girls have taken a liking to the stories, too. They have listened to several of the books on CD during van rides, at rest time, and at bedtime. Steady Eddie gave me the first season of Little House on the Prairie on dvd as a gift several years ago, and because our girls are a little on the sensitive side when it comes to watching movies (the fighting cat and dog in Cinderella, for example, quickly reduces them to tears), we often resort to an episode of Little House for our sporadic family movie nights. They have enjoyed the stories so much, in fact, that they have made them a large part of their imaginative play. Lulu is Mary (“She went blind from scarlet fever,” announced my four year old) and Louise is Laura. Last week, braids were in high fashion here at the Hope Is the Word house:
I get a lot of enjoyment out of listening to my girls’ playacting.
We have borrowed the audiobooks so often from the library that we have decided to add several of the titles to our own home collection. Santa will be bringing some of these to our house this Christmas:
May I suggest one of these titles for your own little Lauras, Marys, and Almanzos this Christmas? If you follow the Amazon links here and purchase through my blog, even more books will find their ways to the Hope Is the Word house, and hence, more reviews to the blog by the same name.
