I'm rereading these books. I read them when I was pretty young and it's so great picking them up again. It's amazing what people did back then to survive. I feel like they knew how to do everything. This is a perfect book for all ages.

this is so good, old book about a family = :) happy me

This book is only 13 chapters !
One of her shortest books .

I got this out in order to share a book from my childhood with my daughter. The book is valuable for its depiction of what life used to be like for those living off the land in the 19th century, which is unimaginable for children today. However, it also depicts a lot of the ugliness of that culture: there are scenes of expectations and punishments for children that would be considered horrific child abuse today, and includes at least one revoltingly racist olde-tymey fiddlin' song (I haven't finished the book yet). I would recommend that parents discuss these passages with their children, particularly young children who don't yet have a context for these passages.

This is one of those books that you read when you were young and you come back later and read, either to your own child or by yourself. While it reminds oneself how much simpler life was almost 140 years ago, it also reminds one that it was also a much harder existence because one had to make everything one ate and wore; there was no grocery store to get butter, cheese, milk and bread and one couldn't just hop in ones car to go and get a new outfit at the local store. Its an enjoyable read at any age.

They were cozy and comfortable in their little house made of logs, with the snow drifted around it and the wind crying because it could not get in by the fire.
