Every Little Girl's Favorite...

Little House in the Big Woods (Little House, #1)

Little House in the Big Woods

By: Laura Ingalls Wilder

Genre: Juvenile fiction

Pages: 224

Published: 2007

Audiobook: 4 CD’s (3 ½ hours)

Read: March

3 out of 5

This is one of those series that every little girl is supposed to read (and love) during their childhood. I never did! So I decided I should see what it is all about. The narrator was awesome, but I couldn’t get into the story. I know the time period was long ago, but I hated Pa. He favored the boys and wouldn’t let the girls go sledding or play with dolls on Sunday – playing with dolls is NOT work. So I tried to listen as though I am a much younger girl; I still don’t think it would have interested me. I enjoy stories with character development and an exciting plot. I am not saying that hearing about how the pioneers lived wasn’t interesting; I kept waiting for something to happen and I do believe I would have wanted excitement and a climax as a young girl too.
