Where have I been, and what have I been doing that I missed anyone ever talking about the Little Britches series of books by Ralph Moody? Hannah at Cultivating Home mentioned that her husband was reading the Ralph Moody books to her boys, and I was intrigued. I found the first book at my library, and was already enthralled by the second page. This is good stuff, folks. The style is a lot like the Little House books, but (no offense to Laura) I would have to say I have felt more (already shed tears!) while reading the beginning of this first book than I ever did reading about the Ingallses. I love seeing this family’s focus on character, the attention given to Bible reading, and the adoration the mother and father have for each other. I can’t wait to start reading the books aloud to the children.
