Re-reading Little House in the Big Woods this year brought back so many memories from my childhood. I used to read late at night when I was a kid, long after my parents had put us all to bed. It’s one of the reasons why I wear glasses now - I would spend hours reading by the light from the Jack-and-Jill bathroom between my room and my brothers’ room.
I loved reading this story again as an adult and found myself so intrigued by all of the ways the Ingalls family did things differently than we do in western society now. As someone who dreams of farming, enjoys gardening and growing food, and who loves to spend time in the kitchen processing and preserving a harvest, it was so fascinating to read about how Pa would smoke the meat they were putting up for winter or how the family got together to process their maple syrup for the year. It made me grateful for the convenience afforded to me today, but also made me yearn for a simpler way of living that involves a deeper connection to the land, a more grounded sense of place and a more holistic way of fostering community. I do look forward to reading the rest of the series again.
There are a couple of references in the book that are racist (primarily in song lyrics), which is why I did not give the story a full 5 star review. I would recommend having healthy conversations about this with your young ones who might read this book.
Have you ever wondered what it was like to live in Wisconsin in 1870? If yes, then the book Little house in the big woods, by Laura Ingalls Wilder would be a good book for you to read. This book is the first book in the nine book series, “Little house on the Prairie”. In the book “Little House in the Big Woods”, Laura talks about what life was like for her and her family during the 1870s. The story takes place in a little log cabin where Laura and her family live in the big woods. Laura lives in the cabin with her mom, Caroline, her father, Charles, her older sister, Mary, and her younger sister, Carrie, and their dog, Jack. The storyline of the book is all about how Laura and her family are gonna survive the long hard winter. Laura talks all about what her family does to survive and all the struggles along the way.
The parts of the book that I really enjoyed was when Laura talked about funny stories that happened to her and her family. I enjoyed the book alot because of the way Laura told the story, for instance she used first person so I could picture exactly what she experienced. I also enjoyed how it showed how people in the 1870 lived and their way of life. I didn’t enjoy it, however, when she put lots of detail into things that were not very important to the story line. Like for example when she talked so much about nature and objects that didn’t really have any meaning to the story.
I however could understand why some people might not like the book as much as I did. Like for example, if you're not big into storytelling then people might find the book not as interesting. Someone also might not like the book as much if you aren’t big into outdoors or don’t care that much about family life. The book is mainly about the outdoors and family so I think you need to have some interest in these topics or you won’t enjoy the book much. But for me I really enjoy those things so I enjoyed the book very much.
I would however, definitely recommend people to read the book “Little House in the Big Woods” because of all the adventure and stories that Laura talks about in the book. Although the book is a very big eye opener on how people survived winter in the 1870s and showed lots of hardships, it has very interesting stories and facts you probably have never heard before so you read this book to give you a better perspective on the life we have.
Good book about everyday and seasonal activities living in the big woods of Wisconsin. Lots of hard work but enjoying the beauties of Winter, Spring, etc. The father, Charles, has a bushy beard and loves to fiddle. More basic than the TV series. I like the art of Garth Williams. He also did Charlotte's Web. Laura is very young in this one.

Things I did not remember or even notice: there are a lot of guns and spankings. I told my friend this could be retitled “Guns n Spankings”. I used this as a point of discussion with my children to cover how disobedience could lead to extreme consequences in a time and place without easy access to doctors and communication. We also compared it to an Old Testament style vs NT as we were reading the Old Testament concurrently. It was interesting to reread as an adult.
My kids enjoyed this very much and I did too. I personally chose to edit out some language I did not want my children to adopt. It definitely held up vs some other books I’ve reread as an adult.
TLDR if you practice gentle parenting you might want to preread. If you are pro 2A in theory but did not grow up with guns you might also be surprised.
If you grew up never playing with a pig’s bladder balloon, what can I say? Samesies. ( )
