One day, as I was chatting with Hannah of So Obsessed With, we wound up talking about Little House. It turns out we both had a deep love for this series, and thought of it fondly, but hadn't reread it in years. We decided it was high time to remedy that, to revisit our favorite characters and moments, and so, Looking Back at Little House was born! We'll be celebrating with Little House posts for the next three days on both our blogs. Today, we'll be talking about our memories & expectations. Don't forget to check out Hannah's post after you read mine!
What did I remember about the series? I remembered Laura, a spunky, stubborn gal who lives a pretty adventurous pioneer life. I remembered her Pa, Ma, and sisters Mary and Carrie. (I'm embarrassed to admit that I did not remember Grace.) I remembered Indians on the prairie, a home built of sod, sleigh rides with Almanzo, Laura as a teacher and Mary going blind. I only really saw the big picture of the series in my mind, the grander moments and the characters I really loved.
YOUR TURN! Have you ever read the Little House series? What did you think of it? What do you remember? Would you reread it again or keep it in your collection for your kids to read?
