Some Very Special Books

Today I want to share some of our favorite Children's books.
Our collection of My First Little House Books based on the Little house books series.
Being a  Laura Ingalls Wilder fan, I started getting these books for my daughter when she was about three years old.
It's a great way to introduce the Little House Books and feed the excitement for the "real" ones.
Brenda loves these books. Every birthday and Christmas she got a couple of them. 
They are lovely books. The illustrations are beautiful.
Brenda is in first grade and can read these books with little help .
We told her that she will get the "real" ones for her birthday in June. She can't wait.
But then she asked me - Mommy, when I get the Laura books, can you  save these ones?
Please don't give them  away... I want to save them for my kids!
You see? That's my girl! Of course I will save them.
Here some more pictures.
So sweet! These books are a real treasure!  I love Pa Ingalls!
I don't think I need to tell you about the great values these books can teach children. Especially today's children. I really could go on and on talking about them.
Brenda asks so many questions.  How things were at that time, why the Ingalls family had to move, about the chores the girls did, about Jack, about everything.
She is very impressed with the fact that Mary sewed a dress for Laura's doll on her birthday.
Last Christmas she asked for a Laura doll. I made one for her. You can see it here .
She also has two sets of Little House paper dolls.
Now, Brenda has to wait and be a good girl and she will get the "real" books for her birthday.
They are already in my special hiding place. We got a set of the first five books with full color pictures from Amazon at a really great price. We plan to get the rest of the books again for Christmas and birthdays, since she is still young to read all  the books by herself.
I hope you have a great day!

  1. The Laura Ingalls Wilder books were always popular in my household, too, Ana! I love little Brenda's comment about wanting to keep this set for her children--how sweet is that :) Sounds like she is already a thoughtful and kind little girl.

    Hope you have a wonderful Easter!

  2. I guess I'd better check these books out for Little Sammy :) Thanks for sharing this at the party. Please join us again this Sunday :)
