Good To The Last Book

Well, I've done it. I've completed all the Laura Ingalls Wilder books. And can I just say, I'm glad I did. I don't mean because there were so many of them, but the experience of reading them again. When I first started reading them I think my thinking was, yeah this is a book series I've read before and let's see if I can do it again. But as I was reading through the last few books I became more and more fascinated with her and her life. I found a really neat book at the library called, Laura's Album: A Remembrance Scrapbook Of Laura Ingalls Wilder.

It shows pictures of her, her family, her husband and her daughter. The houses she lived in through the years, and so much more. What's really neat is that when I was reading through that book I would come across things that I had read about in her Little House books. It was pretty cool. So anyways, I really feel like I've gotten a renewed sense reading through these books as an adult. I really do recommend if you're in the mood for some good reading and aren't sure where to start, start with these books or even just try out the book I listed above. Enjoy!

Hi! Your blog still looks wonderful!

I have been reading the little house books to my kids for a while. We ended up taking a break when we got to By the Shores of Silver Lake, so we could read the Lemony Snicket books.
