Monday Memories: Little House on the Prairie

Welcome to my meme, Monday Memories, where I feature favorite books we've loved from the past. You can link to an old review, or write something new about a beloved book from your past. Really, what's important is not the book, but why it is memorable to you. So, have fun reminiscing, and leave a comment below, so we can all enjoy your memories.

I also wanted to let you know about another wonderful blog that you should check out. Ashley @ Books from Bleh to Basically Amazing does a weekly post called Memory Monday. She has been posting about her childhood memories of books. What's great about Ashley's site is that she is asking for guest posts for her Memory Monday event!  So hop on over there and check it out.
I read Little House on the Prairie when I was very young. I fell in love with Laura. I wanted to BE Laura. Everything about her life seemed so romanticized. Then, when the TV Series came out, I thought maybe this wasn't really the life for me. I mean, there were scary things they had to deal with. Blizzards, illnesses, "Indians," and mean bullies like Nellie Oleson!

What's interesting is that I don't remember reading any of the other books in the series. I think I may have read at least one other, but the first one is the one that left an impression.

I would still encourage young girls to read the Little House books. I think they are classics that kids today can still enjoy. But, it's been a while, so maybe I should read it again before I say that!


Share one of your cherished book memories!

  1. I LOVED the whole Little House series and the TV show. My friends and I definitely played "Little House", pretending to be Laura, of course

  2. When I was a kid, I thought the Little House books were boring, though I liked the TV show. However, once I had kids of my own, this was one of the first chapter books I read with them. This was how they fell in love with reading. And I found the stories enchanting.
