|Now as a mother, I am sick of the shows on tv that depict entitled, bratty kids, and parents as dumb or completely absent||Or more, to donate to the school or library|
|I love it more than ever||For example the first page has this sentence missing after the words -strong and well built " The man who built her so well said, This Little House shall never be sold for gold or silver and she will live to see our great-great grandchildren great great grandchildren living in her "|
I also like that it teaches historical period information, such as what life was like in the frontier and Prarie including at the beginning Native American and European American relations, both self-sufficiency and also the value of community, how things were done back then living daily life, the development of cities, kindness toward neighbors and visitors, etc.
|How long it was read to me and later I read to my daughter||There is some content that may be a little heavy for littler ones and even us after a stressful day : a man who beats his son is obviously portrayed as villainous behavior , an alcoholic who sobers up but not before displaying some awful behaviors, etc|
|Sometimes I just can't take another minute of the craziness of the world and I have to escape into something simple and inspiring||He was totally engrossed by the wonderful stories|
I love this book, but please be aware that the board book version does not contain the whole story.
|She is always asking to watch the next episode||We've been reading chapters of Little House on the Prairie together, so I figured it was time to bite the bullet and buy a digital season through Prime and I haven't bought a DVD for a long time, love having these available online - no way for little fingers to play with the discs and scratch them|
|We enjoyed so many episodes, but when they started getting too heavy we took a break until the youngest could enjoy them as well, or chose a non-stressful day||This was a one and a half hour movie that focused on the Ingles family's journey from the big woods, west, to the prairie|
I wanted a wholesome show to watch as a family.18
