THEY DID AS THEY WERE TOLD
This is a great wonderful book. I loved every single minute of it. It is heart warming, entertaining and instructional. Things get too crowed in Wisconsin, since almost once a day the Ingalls see a wagon going down the road close to their house. We follow the family as they travel to Kansas over frozen lakes, through woods and over the prairies. We meet wolves, panthers and Indians.
KNEE DEEP, KNEE DEEP
I am partial to heart warming books that show love between the parents and the kids. Several times I teared up in joy. I admit that I am a little more sensitive then some others on this subject, but no matter how hard you are, this will have you feeling good.
This narrator is one of the best in the business.
THERE IS NO GREAT LOSS, WITH OUT SOME SMALL GAIN
To Sacramento and Austin, if you read this far. I know what you are doing and how you are doing it. I have the same power in spades, so how about you don't use that negative power on me and I won't use mine on you.

Cherry Jones is perfect! The book is classic. The story is engaging. The characters are men and women of courage and great heart.

She has a dreadful singing voice and she kept singing the songs out of tune.

The Big Woods have gotten too settled for Pa and the Ingalls family, so it's off to Indian Territory. There a Little House is built, one that becomes home, complete with glass windows.
This wonderful book is really enlivened by the writing: a thousand dickey birds, singing the family to sleep with a thousand songs; stars so close they sing little Laura to sleep as well (but not before exciting her imagination!); the waking nightmare of an Indian War Cry.
There is love of family here, and of neighbors (the introduction of the stalwart Mr. Edwards); there is the excitement of being in a land that is an endless sea of grass; there are wildfires, gusty winters, Santa Claus, and Indian Jamborees that may turn deadly.
As always, Cherry Jones narrates with heart and energy, and she sings the family's tunes with gusto.
A great addition to the series!

I listen to and read along with my 7 year old boy. We love this time together and is a great way to spend an hour or two. Audible 20 Review Sweepstakes Entry
We love these stories! The narrator seems to do a bit better with her reading in this book then she did in the first. The music is something we've enjoyed in both!
The reader is great and my boys loved hearing about making bullets and gun powder, hunting for animals, building a house, crossing a prairie, gardening and putting up food for the winter. Such a wonderful classic.
me and my daughter loved listening to this oneit! can't wait to listen to the next book!
Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?
Our family loved this one - it was a bit more intense than the prior two books in the series. Be prepared to discuss issues related to white settlers pushing Native Americans off their land with your kids. The narrator is excellent.

It was a wonderful experience to read this book with my 8 year old daughter. I read this series as a child and I was eager to share it with my children. It transported us and we felt like we were living with Laura. It sparked wonderful moral and ethical conversations between us, and we both learned a lot.

If you could sum up Little House on the Prairie in three words, what would they be?
Time gone by.
What was one of the most memorable moments of Little House on the Prairie?
The fiddle playing is just gorgeous and really adds to the audio book.
Which character – as performed by Cherry Jones – was your favourite?
I don't have a favourite - she has a beautiful voice which is lovely to listen to.
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
Any additional comments?
We are so happy these audio books have finally come to Audible as the cds were difficult to get hold of and could be quite pricey. They are such lovely versions of these stories which we have all enjoyed listening to. Can't recommend highly enough :D
