Book o' the Month: A Little House Christmas Treasury

Happy New Year!  Better late than never!  (Which is my motto for sending out Happy New Year cards this year...just ordered them lieu of Christmas cards, yet again.)

I have never read any of the Laura Ingalls Wilder books.  But I did watch hours and hours of Little House on the Prairie on TV as a child.  Now I want to read them all!

I gave Valerie A Little House Christmas Treasury for Christmas, and then read the kids a chapter each night before New Year's.  What fun!  My favorite aspect of the stories in this darling collection is how the gifts were so simple (mittens, candy, an orange), and so very appreciated and celebrated.

In fact, I'm pondering skipping all the crazy shopping next December in favor of one trip to the grocery store.  Everyone is getting citrus in their stocking next Christmas.  Who's with me?


  1. What a sweet book. Sounds like an annual tradition!

  2. I LOVED all the Little House books as a child. I treasured those books and had the collection which I just gave to Kerrie's oldest girl.

  3. Those are wonderful books! I loved them :)

  4. I could never get my daughter to read her books! I lived on them when I was young and I'm thinking of re-reading them too. Classics!
