Book o' Last Month: Farmer Boy

Andrew and I got through the second book in Laura Ingalls Wilder's Little House series, Farmer Boy.  We loved it!  This book is about the early life (ages 8-10) of Almanzo Wilder, Laura's future husband.  He lived a much more stable and affluent lifestyle compared to Laura.  His father was a farmer who also raised horses, among other things.  His parents were firm and frugal, but also kind and generous.

This book was fascinating!  We learned many many things about life on a farm.  We are also continuing to watch the TV series.  We are on season four right now--Hubby and I seeing many episodes for the first time, and no wonder.  Probably the ones which are a bit on the odd side  (see "My Ellen") weren't aired as reruns.

Now were are back with Laura and the gang, reading On the Banks of Plum Creek.
