Here Almanzo and his brother and sisters help with the summer planting and fall harvest. In winter there is wood to be chopped and great slabs of ice to be cut from the river and stored. Time for fun comes when the jolly tin peddler visits, or best of all, when the fair comes to town.This is Laura Ingalls Wilder's beloved story of how her husband Almanzo grew up as a farmer boy far from the little house where Laura lived.Correlates to the Common Core State Standards in English Language Arts

What a delightful way to revisit this classic series. Cherry Jones does a lovely job narrating this story about Almanzo Wilder as a young boy on the farm. His parents are loving, but firm and so industrious. They are so efficient at using their resources and providing what they need for the family and the farm. They waste not, want not and strive for excellence in their work. Inspiring!
