My guest author for this week has to be postponed to a later date. I’m looking forward to when I can get that post up. So I decided to bring on a guest reviewer. For the past several weeks where we’ve been isolated I have been reading to my ten year old. We started with The Lion, The Witch, and the Wardrobe. He really enjoyed it. Then at his request we began The Little House series.
We have finished The Little House in the Big Woods and are now onto the Little House on the Prairie. I asked Wyatt what he thought about Little House in the Big Woods and here is what he had to say, “I liked it, I really, really liked it. I could understand all the grammar, it was just really easy to understand the story. My favorite part is when Ma smacked the bear on the butt.”
LOL that part was pretty funny. Though I imagine that Caroline was terrified once she realized it was a bear and not the family’s cow she slapped!
Wyatt says of Little House on the Prairie, “I was really surprised to find out that Jack got lost. When Jack made it back I was like ‘woohoo’. It took a really long time to travel back then.”
We talked about how long it took to travel. We mapped out the distance they traveled in the book and then calculated how long it would take us to make that same journey today. He was really surprised to learn that we can do the same trip that took them several weeks in a day!
We’re looking forward to reading the rest of the books, we’re currently about half way through Little House on the Prairie and next we’ll be reading Farmer Boy. What started out as a chapter a night has turned into two or three chapters because Wyatt wants to find out what happens next.
If you’ve never read The Little House series Wyatt and I both recommend that you pick up the literary treasure.
