Little House On The Prairie Series by Laura Ingalls Wilder - A Short Summary & Review

A short summary of The Little House on the Prairie series:

Growing up with the Ingalls family, in a series of little houses.

My favorite Laura Ingalls Wilder quote from the books:

"Home is the nicest word there is."

Questions I pondered while reading the Little House on the Prairie series:

Was I the only one who wanted to be a pioneer after reading this?

How could I develop such closeness in my own family?

My review of the Little House on the Prairie series:

My favorite childhood reading.

I will never eat a pig's tail.

I am thankful I have never seen such a winter.

*Note*  These books are quite negative toward Native American peoples, be prepared to have a conversation about racism while reading.
