This series is adorable and a great way to introduce what life was like. Perfect for 2 to 3 year olds but my 5 year old also loves reading them. The books have prompted us into some very good discussions.
This story takes place in the Big Woods of Wisconsin. The main character is Laura. Laura lived with her Pa,her Ma, her big sister Mary, her little sister Carrie and their good old Bulldog Jack. This story is about Laura and Mary never going to town. Then one day Pa says that as soon as he gets the crop planted then they will get to go to town. Before, they were to young so they could not go. A few days later Pa said that they were going to town. So that night Ma gave Laura and Mary a bath then she did their hair. The next morning theygot all ready. Then they headed to town. When they got there there were housesand houses. Laura said there were so many houses she couldn't count them all. Then Pa helped everyone out of the wagon. They all went in this one huge store. It was the biggest out of all of them. When they went inside there were all diffrent sorts of things. At the end of all the trading the person in the store gave Laura and Mary a piece of heart candy. Laura's candy said 'Sweets to the sweet'. And Mary's candy said 'Roses are red, Violets are blue, Sugar is sweet, And so are you'. When they got done they went outside and then had a picnic. Then after the picnicthey headed home. On the way home Pa sang softly' Mid pleasuresand palaces, though we may roam, Be it ever so humble, there's no place like home'. And that was the end of my story.
