Recommend a Book: Little House in the Big Woods

one hand passing a book to another hand


Susan Bock recommends Little House in the Big Woods by Laura Ingalls Wilder because the theme of family is timeless and classic. "When I was 9ish I lived in those books- they swallowed up a whole summer vacation. It wasn’t the setting as much as the way the family pulled together. The family values inspired me so much that my daughters are named after the characters in these biographical stories."
