Little House in the Big Woods
September 22, Report this review. Nice book to read with your 9 year old I am currently reading the series with my 9 year old. We probably could have started it a year or two ago, but had a stack of other books to get through. Continue reading. Teen, 13 years old Written by DaisyisAmazing May 19, It shows what life was like back in the olden days and I would definitely read it again!

Do you think everything in this book is true? As a young reader, I found all the characters equally fascinating because none could not exist alone. There is loveliness in their continued dependence on each other and their landscape for survival:. In the yard in front of the house were two beautiful big oak trees. Every morning as soon as she was awake Laura ran to look out of the window, and one morning she saw in each of the big trees a dead deer hanging from a branch.
Beauty in survival domestic often means sustenance. As a young reader, Little House allowed access to the grimy, messy, violent parts of life—the idea that food comes from a living thing, that continued survival often means getting your hands dirty. They took on lessons of survival as well as stories that frame their narrative. The domestic and the landscape remain intertwined. As an adult, I recognize that many of the elements I found exciting in Little House had to do with how I was raised, but my enjoyment also had to do with what I value in work I read today.

I still gravitate toward writing that tells me about place, that firmly entrenches me in a landscape. I want to know how a family works within the boundaries of a home to better understand each other. I also want to see how differences in a person can separate them from the narrative; how being too different can make a character unsustainable in a domicile.
I want the memory of what it meant to cure a deer with Pa and Laura, the nonsense of a pig bladder filled with air and tied off with string. I want the ugly delight, death, and survival. I want home to mean something. Kristen Arnett is a queer fiction and essay writer.

It was nice to think that I was really where Laura had lived. I was disappointed that the water pump didn't work; I had read there was water and restrooms available. I found this to be more fun to visit than the Museum in town. Great replica of little cabin of where Laura Ingalls wilder was born!
Fun to see the simplicity of life Kids commented that they couldn't survive with small loft above the main living area! Great teaching opportunity! We will reread the book to get the flavor of what we saw!
Beautiful hills abound! Well done! My best friend and I have been planning to take a Laura Ingalls Wilder tour for the last 10 or so years. We finally made it a reality. This beautiful area, with a lovely replica cabin, got us in the mood for the tour. It is an easy drive from Pepin, certainly easier than when Pa would go to Lake Pepin which is beautiful, by the way to fish.
It's a shame that the Big Woods are gone, but you can get the idea by just pausing quietly. The Little House Wayside is free to visit and is about 10 minutes off of Highway 35; the scenery on the drive is absolutely beautiful. The attraction here is the original house that Laura Ingalls was born in when her family lived in Pepin.

Wonderful project by people of Pepin, supported by children in the area. Very much worth seeing. We skipped the Museum in town based on what other reviews on here advised. It is very simple - no furnishings inside. But it was worth it to take a few photos of the explanation sign, house itself and to say that I was there.
Of course I read all the books as a young girl, so definitely a Laura fan. My kids have very little idea who she is, so they weren't as thriled. Flights Vacation Rentals Restaurants Things to do.
