looking forward to Laura




Laura Ingalls Wilder Collection (by John Alexander)

As much as I love reading picture books with Sweet Pea - I am so looking forward to when he's a bit older and and we delve into a chapter (or 2!) of a novel before bedtime. And I already know that the Laura Ingalls Wilder series is going to be one of the first we read together. I have so much love for these books. "Little House in the Big Woods" is one of my favorite books of all time and those Garth Williams' illustrations immediately bring me back to my childhood and my city girl dreams of living and playing in those great big open plains and sleeping in a cozy little log cabin. Still sounds like paradise, doesn't it?

  1. Thanks for bringing back some happy memories. I know that my love of pioneer books has given me an appreciation for self-reliance. And everytime I eat an orange, I think about Laura's Christmas stocking and wish that I could be that enthusiastic about a fruit.
