We enjoyed this book because it was written by a pioneer who experienced these things and knew how it felt. Our favorite part was when the grasshoppers came and ate all the crops. We liked this part because Laura and her family had to have confidence in the next year's harvest. We admire the main character because she was brave and had to face many hard times. We also found the dog Jack very brave. He had to walk all the way to the new land underneath the wagon. This book made our mothers yell at us to go to bed, because we stayed up all night reading and trying to get to the next interesting part. The book leaves you on cliffhangers as you start a new chapter.
If you're looking for an interesting story about pioneer life, "Little House on the Prairie" is just the book for you!
