Here grew the tall trees whose tops Laura had seen from the prairie above. Shady groves were scattered on the rolling meadows, and in the groves deer were lying down, hardly to be seen among the shadows. The deer turned their heads toward the wagon, and curious fawns stood up to see it more clearly. Laura was surprised because she did not see the creek. But the bottom lands were wide. Down here, below the prairie, there were gentle hills and open sunny places.
The air was still and hot. Under the wagon wheels the ground was soft.
In the sunny open spaces the grass grew thin, and deer had cropped it short. For a while the high, bare cliffs of red earth stood up behind the wagon.
But they were almost hidden behind hills and trees when Pet and Patty stopped to drink from the creek. The rushing sound of the water filled the still air. All along the creek banks the trees hung over it and made it dark with shadows. In the middle it ran swiftly, sparkling silver and blue. You can see this is a ford, by the old wheel ruts. What do you say, Caroline? Pet and Patty lifted their wet noses. They pricked their ears forward, looking at the creek; then they pricked them backward to hear what Pa would say.
They sighed and laid their soft noses together to whisper to each other. A little way upstream, Jack was lapping the water with his red tongue. He climbed down from the seat, unrolled the canvas sides and tied them firmly to the wagon box. Then he pulled the rope at the back, so that the canvas puckered together in the middle, leaving only a tiny round hole, too small to see through.
Mary huddled down on the bed. She did not like fords; she was afraid of the rushing water. But Laura was excited; she liked the splashing. He gathered the reins tightly in his hands.
He will be all right. Water began to splash against the wheels. The splashing grew louder. The wagon shook as the noisy water struck at it. Then all at once the wagon lifted and balanced and swayed. It was a lovely feeling. Laura Ingalls Wilder.

This is the standard Little House on the Prairie book with the only difference being that the book is a hard back with dust cover and all of the illustrations by Garth Williams are in full color. You can certainly find the paperback version with the black and white illustrations more cheaply, but I wanted this particular version to read to my girls because I noted when I first started this series with them, the old fashioned language and concepts were hard to follow and they lost interests.
The colored pictures seems to make the story more interesting for them, and they are more engaged.
Not sure if this is really due to the pictures or completely random, but the book is beautifully done, and from a personal perspective, I really like it - I loved the series as a child, but had never seen the pictures in color - added a nice touch for me as the parent reading the book each night.

Bought this for long car rides -- so much better than a DVD! My 5, 12 and 17 year old all love it. The reader does a great job.
She has a very clear voice and you really get into the story. She's not monotonous but also isn't overly theatrical. We have all really gotten engrossed in this story which I didn't expect.
I enjoy this greatly and enjoy that my kids are into it. My middle son has read the story, so it's great for him to hear it as well: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase. What Kindle Users Want to Know: I purchased this on Kindle and was very pleased. The illustrations are the same as the print version. You can navigate through chapters easily. All in all a book perfectly formatted for Kindle. What Reads Want to Know: Laura his eldest sibling was 22 and living elsewhere and his youngest sibling Pearly Day was not yet born.
Almanzo's love of horses is a center theme of the book which takes you through the seasons in a farmer boy's year.
What amazes me is the lack of waste back then. Nothing was wasted. Oat straws were used to make summer hats, apple cores were saved to make vinegar, ashes were saved to make lye soap, and the fat from the pig slaughter is used to make tallow for candles and other uses. Unlike the Ingalls family, Almanzo's were for their part quite well off.
They had large barns, a nice house with a parlor, upstairs bedrooms, and an icehouse. The farm sat on a large track of fertile farmland. Father bred driving horses as well as farming and Mother wove cloth for the clothing they wore.
If you read just one chapter Such a funny story unto itself it will make you want to read the whole story. In conclusion, a delightful book from my childhood that can now be shared via Kindle. Although I should most probably relate to Laura being female and also raised on the prairie, I truly relate to Almanzo more. From age six forward, all I wanted was horse of my own, and later one I could gentle and train myself.
And eventually the dreams became reality. Now I have seen my youth and prime adult years come and go, and as i reread this beloved book in front of the fire as the snow fell outside of the farmhouse I now own, I am transported back to the first time I read the book, when Almanzo and I shared a dream and am reminded dreams really do come true.

Please share this series with any child you love so they can know it too. I borrowed these from my Grandma as a teenager and read them and fell in love. I soon got my own set of books but it gives me great pleasure to have them on my kindle and give my beloved books a rest.
I love these books and they are timeless classics. I love the color illustrated pictures on the kindle it gives the story even more life. Farmer Boy is my favorite of the books. Loved it. Fun and interesting.
What is Kobo Super Points?
Seemed a bit short to me, but still enjoyable. Ages and up. I do suggest, but you should read the first one first. Don't listen to the people who say it's boring because it's definitely not.
It just for older kids. Please don't make reviews saying "my 5 year old got bored" of course they would they're 5 at least wait till they can read on their own.In the middle it ran swiftly, sparkling silver and blue.
