Everyone should read this entire series about the Ingalls family and their adventures as Pa takes them to settle out West. These books grant readers a peek into what life was like for those who were bold enough to move West as the United States expanded. These stories also show us a strong and supportive family — a family worth emulating as they champion one another through adventures and trials.
We love it as a family read-aloud for elementary-aged kids. It may appeal more strongly to girls, but we believe they are valuable and very worthy reads for boys too.
