Summary

The adventures continue for Laura Ingalls and her family as they leave their little house in the Big Woods of Wisconsin and set out for Kansas. They travel for many days in their covered wagon until they find the best spot to build their little house on the prairie. Soon they are planting and plowing, hunting wild ducks and turkeys, and gathering grass for their cows. Sometimes pioneer life is hard, but Laura and her folks are always busy and happy in their new little house.

Wonderful

I read all the books from this series when I was younger. It is lovely to rediscover them on audible. Cherries Jones reads them beautifully and brings the characters to life. I could listen to her for hours.

Just Lovely

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?

Definitely.

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

Little House on the Prairie

I read these books a long time ago and they really gripped me.
Sadly there was something lacking in this reading.
The singing and that discordant fiddle really grated. Maybe that was what passed as entertainment, in which case they have my sympathies.
I shall not be downloading the rest of the series.

Excellent story

Our children have enjoyed all of these stories, and ask lots of questions about why people lived the way they did. Also our children loved the narrator, especially having the same person reading all the stories.

Little House

As a devotee of the books of LIW I was a little concerned that these audiobooks might not do them justice. I need nit have worried - THANK YOU Cherry Jones and the production team.

I didn't want it to finish

Cherry Jones was phenomenal. I will renew my membership just to get more of Laura Ingall's books. It was worth every minute and was sad when it finished.

Great listening!

Books always explain more than the movies/shows. This made long distance traveling enjoyable. Thank you.

WHEN MOM SPOKE LIKE THAT,

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.

Cherry Jones
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.

Amazing

I loved this book as a kid, and to this day, I still love it. Cherry Jones has a soothing voice that relaxes you, and puts a picture in your mind. The story is great for all ages and families. The Little House series was and still are my favorite “children’s” books.

Excellent

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.

The Wildness Of Pure Heart

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!

Narrator can't sing

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

completely charming!

a classic book that I have always wanted to read, but something always got in the way. I loved the narrator and really loved the fiddle songs! Reminded me that children see the world with such wonder. It also made me really glad I was not a pioneer or a settler in a new land.
