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

Great Book About A Hard Worker

I love the lessons this book teaches. I get excited to find out how Ralph will get through each of his trials.

Loved every single book in this series!

We've followed Ralph all the way through the series and loved every minute. Beautifully written and read/performed! Thanks for the ride! Just sad to say goodbye.

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.

Martina

The whole series is the best that I have ever read. The first time I have read it when I was a teenager long time ago. 30 years later I read it again and I'm fascinated from this life story in the same way as long time ago. It is a treasure for my soul!
