Little House at a little price

Big thanks to eagle-eyed reader Mandy for spotting this one—right now Amazon has The Complete Little House Nine-Book Box Set available for just $24.01 (their lowest price ever). Tales of homesteading life on the open prairie never go out of style, you know. I received this boxed set… oh… about 35 years ago. I read it to tatters, and bought a new set for my brand new baby (of course she needed a set of these books before she could even focus her eyes; why are you looking at me like that?) about 20 years later.

In other startling news, I am apparently kind of old.

    Thank you! My daughter is a bit young for these yet, but my set is falling apart. Now I’m ready for when she wants to read them!

    my kiddo loved reading these, and we loved reading them with her. I never read them as a kid! I know, right? so truly loved them now. also put me in the old category.

    These are my kids’ (8 and 6) hands-down favorite read-alouds. My daughter was even Laura Ingalls for Halloween this year.

    I’m tempted to get a fresh set that hasn’t been read to pieces for each of them (to keep forever and ever! and share with their children someday!), but I’ve restrained myself and just bought a set as a gift.

    Yep. I just ordered 8 month old Fiona a set. I don’t know whether to thank you or send you my future marriage therapy bills.

    I’ve already asked for this for myself this year. Sure, I’ll read it to/with my 7-year-old daughters, but I really want it for me.
