My granddaughter was so pleased to get the Little House books and read about things and situations that she originally thought were just some more of "grandma's stories". It pleases her that the characters in the books are her age as opposed to the TV characters which were older and into teenage difficulties as well as the challenges of living on the frontier.
I had this series as a child and read them until they were in a million pieces. I wanted to pass them on to my daughter and read them with her. These books are classics and great entertainment for kids about 5 and up, male or female. Very easy to read with colorful discriptive writing, and simple lovely drawings. A great way to learn about the history of the Sates in a fun way, and what life was like a hundred years ago. I ordered the set for her birthday and they arrived in about a week with standard shipping in perfect shape. And they cost a fraction of what I might have paid in a store. Great value for the price!
