Publisher's Summary

The adventures of Laura Ingalls and her family continue as they leave their little house on the prairie and travel in their covered wagon to Minnesota. Here they settle in a little house made of sod beside the banks of beautiful Plum Creek. Soon Pa builds a wonderful new little house with real glass windows and a hinged door. Laura and her sister Mary go to school, help with the chores, and fish in the creek. At night everyone listens to the merry music of Pa's fiddle. Misfortunes come in the form of a grasshopper plague and a terrible blizzard, but the pioneer family works hard together to overcome these troubles.

And so continues Laura Ingalls Wilder's beloved story of a pioneer girl and her family. The nine Little House books have been cherished by generations of readers and listeners as both a unique glimpse into America's frontier past and a heartwarming, unforgettable story.

Correlates to the Common Core State Standards in English Language Arts.

Oh, How 'Naughty' Laura Can Be! :)

Driven from Indian Territory, Laura and her family settle in Minnesota for "On the Banks of Plum Creek." Here Laura's independent spirit and restless nature really start to shine through. How naughty she is (or what passed for naughty way back when)! She'll dip herself into a raging creek (only because her skin, her very skin, NEEDS to feel the water), and she'll get back at that mean ol' Nellie Olsen, especially when nature provides such things as crabs! And leeches! And she'll save her beloved Charlotte, no matter who thinks it's wrong (But Ma is a kind woman, and she knows that Laura's heart is good and that it was the right thing to do).
A big girl, going on eight, Laura faces school for the first time, church, and is introduced to Sunday School where Teacher doesn't know just how well little Laura knows the Bible.
And always is the background of a life on the land, of living and buying, banking on the wheat crop. Of living through blizzards, of living through glistening clouds that drop grasshoppers like rain.
Cherry Jones does a stellar job, as usual, really bringing the family to life, the angst, the joy.
What wonderful books!

A trip back in time

This journey back to a different place and time is delightful. Here is a family with so little monetary means and hearts over flowing with gratitude. The work ethic and manners are lovely and I've enjoyed my daughter, who is five, mimicking them.

We started listening to the series on a road trip with my 6 and 8 year old daughters and have all gotten hooked on them!

Wonderful!

Narrator Cherry Jones is excellent and makes this series come alive for our whole family. The Ingalls family is so happy and content with so very little...sounds like the secret to life wrapped up in this gift of a book.
