Little House in the Big Woods was written by Laura Ingalls Wilder. Sixty years ago, in the big woods of Wisconsin, a girl named Laura lived with her ma, pa, and sisters. This book is a nonfiction story with two-hundred-thirty-eight pages.
Little House in the Big Woods is about three girls, one mother, and one father, who lived in a little wooden house with one horse, one cow, and a barn yard dog. Laura was scared of wolves so every night her pa would say, “Its okay Laura, the dog will scare them.” Their father hunted for the family. Winter days and winter nights were hard for Pa, because he had to hunt in the heavy snow. Pa had to stock lots and lots of meat for winter. He had a long rifle, which was a gun that Pa used to hunt. Each week, after Pa went hunting he had to clean the long rifle and make bullets for it. Laura and Mary would help him. Pa told them not to touch the hot bullets, but they did and they got burned. Christmas was a joyful time; their cousins would come over, they exchanged presents, and it was so much fun.
Laura is a tomboy who loves to climb anything and everything. Ma, Pa, and Mary love Laura, although Mary did not love her all of the time. Laura is a little rascal, and she loves her dad. Laura can be polite but not all of the time. For instance, one time, she smacked Mary across the face, which was against the rules. She had to talk to her dad, and he immediately sent her to bed early. She learned from that bad experience never to do it again.
I recommend this book, because it tells about the life of living in the woods with no stores and no money. It will also teach you a new way of living life. I think this book is inspiring. There are more books to the series, so read on!
