SummaryAdd a Summary
This book is written by one of my favorite author named Laura Ingalls Wilder. The main character is a boy named Almanzo. Almanzo is the youngest out of his family. He has one older brother named Royal and two older sisters named Eliza Jane and Alice. This book describes Almanzo's childhood when he turned nine years old. In details, the book tells us the chores he does at his family's farm in the town of Malone. But the author focuses on the adventures that Almanzo went through while doing his chores. Some chores that Almanzo does that were described in the book were planting and tending the crops, training young oxen, going to school, and many more.
While Laura Ingalls grows up in a little house on the western prairie, Almanzo Wilder is living on a big farm is New York State, where he and his brother and sisters work at their chores from dawn to dinner most days-no matter what the weather. There is still time for fun,though, especially with the horses, which Almanzo loves more than anything.
