    1. Good grief, as an adult and as a parent, have I grown too practical to read and completely enjoy these books? When Ma and Pa packed up the kiddos and left the Big Woods because there were too many people, less land and game to go around, I thought a little bit to myself, UmPa, did we think through this completely? Are you sure? Are we safe? But Pa is supposed to be an example of Great American Spirit. So, fine, we let this happen. There were some bumps in the road, but oh boy, we have some major [...]

    2. It's easy to get so stuck on the subject matter of the stories Wilder tells that we fail to notice her brilliant, deceptively quiet writing. Her descriptions of scenery are gorgeous, of course; but I love the tiny sentences that tell so much, like this one when eight-year-old Mary and seven-year-old Laura are confronted by a wild herd of cattle:Mary was too scared to move. Laura was too scared to stand still.Or similarly simple descriptions of the girls waiting for their mother to come home:The [...]

    3. This place should be called "Hell Hole", not "Plum Creek". Grasshoppers and blizzards. Another crappy decision by Pa.

    4. I was visiting relatives in Minnesota recently and was hit with a wave of nostalgia when I saw a sign for the Laura Ingalls Wilder museum in Walnut Grove. Somewhere in my mother's photo collection there is a picture of 8-year-old me, crouching by the grassy mound that was once the dugout home of Laura Ingalls and her family in the 1870s. Laura's stories from that period are told in the book, "On the Banks of Plum Creek." Coincidentally, Laura was also about 8 in the book.I loved the Little House [...]

    5. The Ingalls Family versus the WorldLaura and her family drove their covered wagon all the way to Minnesota to begin life anew.Their new house? Built into a bank, with mud walls and a grass roof. A dugout. Ma is not pleased (especially when a cow manages to go through the roof!) but the girls found little ways to be delighted. There's a little creek full of fish and crayfish. There's school - full of new people and learning. And there's family - all together and happy.Except, the crops are ruined [...]

    6. Decided to re-read this preparatory to visiting Walnut Grove!When I was 7 or 8 this was my favorite of the series and all I remembered about it was the creek and the school and Laura's rivalry with Nellie Oleson. Which is quite remarkable because that is only a couple of chapters, and the rest of the book - the BULK of the book - is the battle against poverty, drought, and mainly, GRASSHOPPERS. The descriptions of the grasshopper swarms are absolutely CHILLING. I literally had goosebumps every t [...]

    7. Listened with the family to the great Cherry Jones read this on cd and it is really (again) so surprisingly good. Listening in the car from Davenport, Iowa back to Chicago to finish it, I can't recall stretches of road (gulp). What I recall is Pa telling his story of snow blindness and falling into a ditch in a blizzard and sleeping in a bearskin coat for a couple days under six feet of snow and then, when the storm clears, seeing he was very close to his Plum Banks home and trudging in. Makes R [...]

    8. Eleanor and I are here to review the latest installment of the Little House series, so Eleanor, I'm going to move it to the "Read" shelf.E: What color shelf is Gwen's?Dad: Oh. It's not the color red. There are 3 shelves: read - meaning "I read it," currently reading, and I want to read it.E: Oh. Maybe for the next book, we could sit on the computer bench and move the Silver Lake book to the "currently-reading" shelf.D: Ummm Ok. We can do that. Or, I could I could move it to the "currently-readin [...]

    9. This isn't my favorite Laura book but it contains two of the most impressive, and perhaps famous, scenes: Nellie Olson dancing about with leeches on her legs (the absolute best example of "what goes around, comes around" I've ever seen) and the coming of the grasshoppers (nightmare material, that.) This is also the book where the doll Charlotte goes and comes back--in two favorite, love-hate scenes--and the book where Laura gets a fur muff. Oh, how I wanted a muff. There are more simple, beautif [...]

    10. I loved reading this book while camping. I wasn't exactly in a prairie, but it was great to read this outside lost in the nature. This book was so sweet and charming, and its simplicity was refreshing after some other heavier books I was reading. I loved following Laura and Mary around their underground house, picking up plums and playing in the creek. I loved feeling happy for them when they made a button garland for Carrie's Christmas, or when they got a new cow. And I could sympathize and fee [...]

    11. this is maria i am lisas daughter.i think the book was graet favrit part is when laura allmost drowns on the footbrigee end was very exsiting whith the blizerds.i want to read the next book about this family.

    12. I loved this book! I am currently rereading the entire Little House series, which I have not visited since I was a kid. I feel like the books just keep getting better. Since it had been such a long time since I read this, I had forgotten most of the plot and, consequently, it was almost like reading this for the first time. I was left with a few unanswered questions. For example:(view spoiler)[ What did they eat when Pa was away the first time? They had no money and all their crops were destroye [...]

    13. Starting to really agree with a review I read of the Little House books. One woman wrote about how on top of things Alamonzo's family seemed in Farmer Boy. They had a permanent home, savings, etc. Whereas Papa Ingalls was a hot mess. He dragged the family away from their relatives in Wisconsin where they had a home, to Indian country. Along the way they were almost swept away down a river when he insisted they could cross it, wagon and all. (Jack, the dog, gets the short end of the stick overall [...]

    14. Ha! I couldn't even tell you what the cover illustration was on this one (although I'm sure it was the above) as it has been gone for so very long. A few years ago, my Book Club read The Children's Blizzard, which talked about the settling of the Midwest by the mostly Scandinavian immigrants and how harsh the land was, and really unsuitable for homesteading. While at the time, I thought of The Long Winterthis book illustrates the point as well. When they first arrive, Mr. Nelson is heading west [...]

    15. Aside from Pa's failures to produce the promised wheat crops (he sure talks a helluva game about this in this book) and his need to "walk 300 miles" to find a job, this book features the Ingalls family staying in one place the entire book. No worries, though. We know how irritating the Norwegians are, how the church folks can't sing in tune, and how the grasshoppers are the root of all evil. Also, Laura is a vindictive little bitch toward one of her classmates and it was kind of fantastic to rea [...]

    16. I'll never be too old for reading one of Laura Ingalls' books. The utter simplicity which characterizes them, the mouth watering description of their sumptuous repasts with interludes of wise thoughts and mischiefs makes it one of my favorite books to go to. The best part is that you can read it at any age and anytime you read it again, it gives you fresh perspectives to ponder over.

    17. This was the first book I read of the series because we lived in Plum Borough (by Pittsburgh, PA) and yes, there was a Plum Creek. My aunt gave it to my sister for her birthday way back when.

    18. My gosh, what didn't I learn about real history from these books. Laura Ingalls Wilder was a staple of my library most of my childhood. back then you could cite me a line and I knew which book it came from, who said it and in what circumstance! I learned that as my father, born in 1899, was fond of pointing out to us, we had life easy! People worked really HARD for a living back then, and lucky to have three sets of clothing, and hope you liked mush, 'cause you ate it a lot! Dresses down to the [...]

    19. wow. As other reviewers have stated - the contrast between Pa & Almanzo's father could not be greater. Reading these as an adult is rather mind-blowing. Add "as a parent" and it takes on a whole new level of "holy crap!". I simply cannot fathom doing the things that they did, nor weathering the storms that they did - quite literally. Nor putting my children in the way of harm the way that was done then (as when Pa decides to leave the whole family alone for months on end or simply days on en [...]

    20. Little House on the Prairie by Laura Ingalls Wilder is an exquisite set of books that I cherished growing up. Read until they were dog-eared, this series has to be one of my childhood favorites. A story about a young girl growing up on the frontier, it was so popular they made it into a T.V. series even though the series didn't do it justice. Stories as a young girl I could relate to, the mean girl in town, fights with my sisters, and just the struggles of everyday life of any family. The love M [...]

    21. Another read through of this, as a read-aloud to several children. This one is all about making the prairie into a home, being swamped with grasshoppers and surviving the winter.I am finding that the re-reading of these as an adult reveals such a different picture. Charles and Caroline leave their hard won cabin on the prairie to move to a sod house cut into the banks of a creek. Imagine that in winter or flood. They finally build another house by borrowing money against their large wheat crop w [...]

    22. This was easily my favorite book of the series so far. The chapter length was perfect for reading out loud to my kids and most chapters read like its own little adventure. I also enjoyed how this book didn't go into super lengthy detailed descriptions, unlike the previous books. Parts of the book made us laugh out loud. We all enjoyed the stories from a simpler time, a time when people didn't have so much stuff and a pair of shoes where cherished. There were several important life lessons that e [...]

    23. This one has some of the most memorable moments in the Little House series: the little dugout house, the cow putting his foot through the roof, leeches in the creek, locusts, doing chores by following a rope between the house and barn in a blizzard all those moments of life in a pioneering era of hardship and pure heart. Despite knowing how these stories turn out, I still get anxious for Pa coming home in the storm, or when trying to put out a prairie fire, and get grossed out by the leeches, ch [...]

    24. The whole time I was reading this book, I kept feeling like I had read it before. I mean, I have read it before, but years and years ago, as a kid and as a teen. I kept reading, and I kept telling myself what was going to happen next, and it finally dawned on me, I had recently re-read the book - I just didn't update with the info, or bother to write a review! So this book, so far, is my favorite in the series. I love the imagery that Ingalls uses throughout the book to describe the scenes, and [...]

    25. Reread January 5, 2017.Ma says in this book, "There is nothing in the world so good as good neighbors." I always was, as a kid, and am still now, fascinated by the Ingalls' neighbors. There is Norwegian Mr. Nelson in this one and the kindly, wildcat from Tennessee, Mr. Edwards, who brings the girls their Christmas gifts in "Little House on the Prairie." They interest me, partly because neighbors were so necessary, so needed, for well digging (Mr. Scott), helping to build houses and stables, to h [...]

    26. OMG! I forgot I'd ever read this book! And it was one of my favorites as a kid! I read it over and over, and I KNOW I owned it. What the heck even happened to it? D: I think it got destroyed somehow which is so sacrilegiousbut omg I'm so glad I found this on GR. It's such a classic and written so beautifully.

    27. লিটল হাউজ সিরিজের বই গুলোর মধ্যে অন্য রকম একটা আকর্ষন আছে। পড়া শুরু করলে থামা যায় না। একদমই সহজ সরল সাদা মাটা জীবনের বর্ণনা । কিন্তু লেখিকার লেখার হাত এমন যে মনে হয় সব কিছু চোখের সামনে ঘটছে। প [...]

    28. So Pa decides to take his family from the (relatively) safe and comfortable home on the prairies of Kansas, uproot them, and resettle in Minnesota, living in a dugout hole in the ground. Why? He has dreams of making his fortune selling wheat, which he believes will make the family rich enough to afford all sorts of luxurious things that they have never had before. Why does he believe this? Laura never explains. But this entire story seems to be a cautionary tale of what happens to people when th [...]

    29. As a child, reading this book was full of fun and adventure. As an adult, I was terrified. I am also reading Prairie Fires, a biography of Wilder, that expands on the history of the time and fills in the tragedies that Wilder excluded in her Little House stories. It makes a great companion to these stories.
