Books for any century and age

I've been reading and re-reading (or listening) to each of the books in Ralph Moody's "little britches" series for nearly 15 years... as a young married father I find there is just as much enjoyment in them as the first day my mother read them to us siblings... but where I never cease to be amazed is the wisdom to be gleaned for any age, a young, college age or fathers &a mothers ... Ralph's adventures are books I will never put down and read to my kids and grandkids

Fabulous series!

Just finished the last of this fantastic 8-book autobiographical series by Ralph Moody. Wonderful stories for all ages. And Cameron Beierle does a masterful job with every one of them.

We absolutely love the Little Britches series!

We have listened to all 8 books of the series and loved just about every one! It's like Famer Boy by Wilder just expanded to 8 books with ranchers!

Great Series

I have loved listening to the Little Britches series. I have been totally entertained as I have listened along to the life of Ralph Moody. I am sorry that I didn't know of this series as I was raising my children. It would have been a wonderful book to have shared together as there are so many fantastic learning opportunities. I am nearing the end and wondering what I will do once I no longer have Ralph to help pass the time at the gym :) Perhaps I will start over!

Great book for prospective entrepreneurs.

Love the book! A great book for those who want to help themselves or their children learn to become entrepreneurs, and how to recover from setbacks.
