    • Okay, it s a great American classic, I realize that I read it for the first time in third grade because the pioneer go forth and push westward philosophy is a central feature in the proud American mindset and heritage But it s for that very reason that the value of the book needs to be questioned.While much of the story focuses on a family s self reliance on the Kansas prairie, the book preceding it Little House in the Big Woods does the same with the exception that the Ingalls family was integr [...]


    • I recently read this to my young son, and he couldn t get enough He s a kid who loves nothing than to spend all day in the woods building forts, so perhaps it s not surprising that he took to this book It s a marvelous adventure story that left me in awe of the sheer indefatigable competence of this family The relationship of the family to the natural world the great prairie that they move to is fascinating, as is their relationship to the Indians Then again, fascinating did, on a rare occasion [...]


    • I have mixed feelings about this book My mother read the Laura Ingalls books with me when I was a little girl, and I m rereading them for the first time in 30 years Little House on the Prairie is the story of the Ingalls family Pa and Ma, Laura, her sister Mary and her baby sister Carrie taking a covered wagon all the way from Wisconsin to Kansas at about 1870 The author is vague on the timing, such as exactly what year it was or how old she was, but it seems to be written from the perspective o [...]


    • This is not really a review of the general contents and themes of Little House on the Prairie, but my personal attitudes towards the fact that this book has been and like so many others repeatedly challenged and even at times banned censored mostly due to the way Native Americans are depicted and the attitudes shown towards them.There are definite issues with Little House on the Prairie, and especially the attitudes towards Native Americans are problematic to say the least However, attitudes to [...]


    • I bought the CD of this story for my 4 year old daughter and have spent many days listening to it in the car with her.This book should clearly be renamed Pa s follies as the entire story is about him bumbling from one misadventure to the next.1 Pa leads the family across a frozen lake Peppin The very next morning the family hears the ice on the lake start to crack and break up By the luck of one day the Ingalls family is spared a frozen death.2 Pa nearly drowns the entire family crossing a creek [...]


    • I am a fan of the Laura Ingall s Wilder books, and I am enjoying them even as an adult, sharing them with my daughter This one moved a bit slowly than Little House in the Big Woods, but I was still fascinated I can hardly imagine a life so primitive Some say Pa was crazy for moving his family away from the Big Woods where they had a solid footing, but the settler s spirit is responsible for the growth and development of our country and is still the heart of the American way Who doesn t look to [...]


    • So entertaining and so racist.Is this the book where we start to learn how flawed Ma and Pa really are Pa is certainly a happy go lucky guy with no foresight taking his wife and daughters away from their family into the middle of nowhere which by the way belongs to Indians , almost getting them drowned, burned and sick of malaria And Ma, only concerned with propriety and never saying no to Pa s foolish ideas I d be really worried to be married to someone like Pa, even though he plays his fiddle [...]


    • Little House on the Prairie is the second novel in the series, the first being Little House in the Big Woods But they are stand alone stories so they don t have to be read together Written by Laura Ingalls Wilder, the Little House books are semi autobiographical and are told from young Laura s point of view Yes, they are children s books, and they are written in a very simplistic style, maybe overly so for the adult reader, but perfectly suited for children I don t think there is any doubt that [...]


    • A honey covered lullaby of a book Yum Slurp Racism never went down so good Beautifully written, and read aloud by a champ but Whoa, Bessie even the characters express a smidgen of ambivalence about wresting land from the natives Won t the Indians be mad, Pa And what s with the child wanting her father to steal a Native American baby for her


    • If only we lived and loved in Laura s time In the West the land was level, and there were no trees The grass grew thick and high There the wild animals wandered and fed as though they were in a pasture that stretched much farther than a man could see, and there were no settlers Laura and her family left behind their little cabin in Wisconsin and set off fornew lands and new adventures They settle in Indian Country, and we get a not quite politically correct six year old s view on such things.Lik [...]


    • I can vividly remember the first time I read this book I was sleeping over at my best friend Mary s house when I was about seven or eight years old She lived next door to me Her family always slept with their attic fan on, and with a radio in each bedroom tuned in to a country station This was strange to me, as nights at my house were totally quiet Plus, I was a little freaked out at spending the night away from home, because I hadn t really done that very much at that point in my life So, the n [...]


    • Where I got the book my daughter s bookshelf.Finally did it, folks Read that American childhood classic everyone else but me seems to have read Of course I didn t grow up in America so I have an excuse And I liked it Almost ran upstairs for the next one Sure, the Indians are portrayed as savages who steal and threaten, and the Ingalls family who had set up housekeeping illegally in the Indians territory make absolutely no attempt to understand or really communicate with them But that s a pretty [...]


    • I scrolled quickly down the page and noticed that nobody has much to say about this novel What _is_ there to say about Laura Ingalls Wilder s fiction memoir accounts of growing up in the period of American expansion and homesteading A lot at least 7 volumes worth, in Ingalls Wilder s own series It s easy to categorize Ingalls Wilder s series as children s literature, but her books are also documents of an indomitable feminine spirit, a woman s relation of the American experience in a time when h [...]


    • This book just made me feel like the laziest person in the universe When I have a day where I m hurt and can t do any real work, I don t build a rocking chair.


    • I read this book when I was six years old, and then over and over again until I was about ten I loved it It inspired my imagination like nothing else until Harry Potter than thirty years later For years, I wanted to BE Laura Ingalls Wilder I loved when the grass grew long and I could pretend it was the prairie When I was stuck in the outfield during elementary school softball I was imagining I was playing with Mary and Carrie I read all the books and wrote my own biography of Laura when I was n [...]


    • Laura Ingalls and her family take off in a covered wagon for parts unknown Laura keeps asking for a papoose, like another child would ask for a puppy Her mother exclaims, I don t like Indians No, you cannot have a papoose Why would Laura even think of owning a papoose Could it be her mother s attitude or just childish whims I am going to go for, Childish whims What was once an adorable story about pioneers that all children love to an adult, it can become a political issue It is the times we liv [...]


    • I expected to be inspired by the tales of simple pioneering life I did not expect the fear of Indians and being massacred to be a significant theme and I found I skipped bits when reading this to my young children.



    • I am hoping to review all the Little House books in the order I read them, so even though Little House on the Prairie is the second in the series, it was first for me I was seven years old when I first read it, and my family had just moved from Manhattan to Queens, primarily so that I could attend a better school I was the best reader in my first grade class in Manhattan, but second grade in Queens was a rude awakening The kids there were reading chaptered books of than 100 pages Amongst the gi [...]


    • This will forever be one of my favorite childhood stories It tells of such a realistic and dangerous story, but with such a beautifully innocent touch that I will definitely never forget.


    • I give this book five stars with a huge caveat it should not be read by a child without adult guidance and discussion, and is probably most appropriate for children ages 8 and up There is a lot of blatant racism in this story, as well as a lot of subtle language problems It is clear to me that Laura, writing as an adult, understood the problems with what her family was doing at the time moving into Indian Territory and that she to some extent understood the perspective of the Indians But she wa [...]


    • This was just as enjoyable to read as an adult as it was as a child It brought back a little of my childhood but made me realise also how much complicated our lives have become not because they have to be but because we have made them that way Life was harsh and difficult back then but it was also much simpler and there was joy in the every day things Now we need and and we are still not satisified The story of Laura and her family is one that will be enjoyed by many generations to come, I m [...]


    • SynopsisPart autobiography, part fiction, this book tells the story of a pioneer family settling in Indian Territory in the plains of the American Southwest.ReviewThis American classic can problematic to modern readers Ma s meek demeanor and the frequent reminder that children should be seen and not heard are not likely to resonate with youth of the 21st century and are likely fiction than autobiography Additionally, while the book had a clear beginning and end, the middle was a series of even [...]



    • Note Listened on audio Another wonderful installment in this series I completely understand why this became a classic It s so fascinating to see things from the Ingall family s perspective as they travel out west and try to settle on the prairie I haven t often read books in this type of setting, so it s a great change of pace, and I feel I m learning so much about what life was like back then Those were some really tough people to be able to go out and do the things they did without the help an [...]


    • This is my umpteenth time reading this book, and I enjoyed it just as much as I did when I was a girl There s a simple charm to these stories of pioneer life that invites you in.As always, Laura is my favorite character because she is spunky and brave and hilarious, while her sister Mary is prim and boring.Pa is another favorite, because he is a musician, and because his funny and jovial ways remind me of my own father Laura says that Pa always laughed out loud and his laugh was like great bells [...]


    • This series is a series in which I have read all the books over and over and over again Told through Laura s eyes, and fading memories as she was well into her sixties when she started writing them, we get a good idea of life on the American frontier in the second half of the 1800s Laura gives us plenty of detail about their everyday life in fictional form, making it both interesting and educational Lives was so different then with no local store to pop into, and even if there was one within a f [...]


    • Laura s family decides to go west because the area in which they live in Minnesota in the big woods is getting too populated and scaring the game away So they pack up all of their belongings and leave their little house and go toward the prairie land They find a piece of land in the prairie and start over They encounter trials and joys along the way They make some neighbor friends who live several miles away They are in Indian Territory and deal with nice Indians and the not so nice Indians.What [...]


    • Although I did read this book before quite recently, there were a lot of parts I didn t remember about this book that I enjoyed I loved reading about the trip on the covered wagon, the bridge and story with Jack that s always been one of my favorite parts of this book But my favorite part of the story, by far, is when Mr Edwards comes and gives the girls their presents from Santa Claus So cute Overall, lovely book So glad I re read it Five stars out of five.


    • I read this to my three girls, ages six, seven, and nine My husband also listened each night, as I always read two chapters before bedtime And in fact, he got very upset with me one night when I was unable to read I remember reading these as a girl and loving them But I didn t expect to enjoy them so much as an adult The entire family looked forward to reading time each night Laura s story is told with the experience of an adult, but at the same time she manages to tell it from the perspective o [...]
