Publisher's Summary

While Laura Ingalls grows up in a little house on the Western prairie, Almanzo Wilder is living on a big farm in New York State. Here Almanzo and his brother and sisters help with the summer planting and fall harvest. In winter there is wood to be chopped and great slabs of ice to be cut from the river and stored. Time for fun comes when the jolly tin peddler visits or, best of all, when the fair comes to town.
This is Laura Ingalls Wilder's beloved story of how her husband, Almanzo, grew up as a farmer boy far from the little house where Laura lived.
Correlates to the Common Core State Standards in English Language Arts.

Almost perfect...

This is one of my all-time favourite books. I love the story, the subject, the style of writing, and the narration here almost did it justice. Just a shame that a couple of times I was distracted by what I am sure were mis-pronunciations and which had me reaching for the (American) dictionary to check ! I realise that there can be huge regional variations in accents and I thought Ms Jones voice well suited the material but there still has to be a standard pronunciation or the meaning is lost. Primer and primmer are not the same word!
