What Kindle Users Want to Know:

I purchased this on Kindle and was very pleased. The illustrations are the same as the print version. You can navigate through chapters easily. All in all a book perfectly formatted for Kindle.

What Reads Want to Know:

A classic story from Laura Ingalls Wilder about the early life of her husband Almanzo Wilder living near Malone New York. The story centers around Almanzo and his brother Royal and his sisters Eliza Jane and Alice. (Laura his eldest sibling was 22 and living elsewhere and his youngest sibling Pearly Day was not yet born). Almanzo's love of horses is a center theme of the book which takes you through the seasons in a farmer boy's year. What amazes me is the lack of waste back then. Nothing was wasted. Oat straws were used to make summer hats, apple cores were saved to make vinegar, ashes were saved to make lye soap, and the fat from the pig slaughter is used to make tallow for candles and other uses.

Unlike the Ingalls family, Almanzo's were for their part quite well off. They had large barns, a nice house with a parlor, upstairs bedrooms, and an icehouse. The farm sat on a large track of fertile farmland. Father bred driving horses as well as farming and Mother wove cloth for the clothing they wore. If you read just one chapter.... read "Keeping House". Such a funny story unto itself it will make you want to read the whole story. In conclusion, a delightful book from my childhood that can now be shared via Kindle.

Although I should most probably relate to Laura being female and also raised on the prairie, I truly relate to Almanzo more. From age six forward, all I wanted was horse of my own, and later one I could gentle and train myself. And eventually the dreams became reality. Now I have seen my youth and prime adult years come and go, and as i reread this beloved book in front of the fire as the snow fell outside of the farmhouse I now own, I am transported back to the first time I read the book, when Almanzo and I shared a dream and am reminded dreams really do come true. Please share this series with any child you love so they can know it too.

I borrowed these from my Grandma as a teenager and read them and fell in love. I soon got my own set of books but it gives me great pleasure to have them on my kindle and give my beloved books a rest. I love these books and they are timeless classics. I love the color illustrated pictures on the kindle it gives the story even more life. Farmer Boy is my favorite of the books.

I've always loved this book, ever since I was a kid. I re-read it from time to time just to bring back the old days. It really brings to life the way people lived early in our countries history. The amount of work people did then just to have the basics of life never ceases to amaze me.

I read aloud the Little House in the Big Woods for the second time for homeschool and then fallowed it with this book. My kids are 7, 5 and 4 and they colored as they listened, each getting something out of it on their own level. We all loved how it ended. They all wanted to be farmers after reading this book. Lol. I learned so much about farming too. Lots of parts may be technical to get through, but we took our time and it was worth it.

A treasured series I adored as a child now being shared with my kids. The story is timeless - a true classic for the ages. This particular hardcover design and raw edge pages pay homage to their age as well as their value as volumes to be cherished and kept for generations. We now own all 3 titles with this binding style - I wish they would release them all!

I enjoyed this series as a child. Now my own child is enjoying the series. This series has my child using her imagination and reading skills. The narrator highlights the words as it is reading and helps her recognize words better.
This is one of my favorite LIW books because I love reading about how they make everything. It's a wonderful look at life in upstate New York in the mid 1800's. The candle-making and the way Mrs. Wilder made wintergreen flavoring fascinated me. And the story of Lucy the pig and the candy is hilarious.
