I’m a huge fan of children’s literature. I’m in three children’s literature reading groups, and I read that literature all the time.
So naturally one of my favorite writers is Laura Ingalls Wilder. Her Little House books are masterpieces.
The passage I read can be found in The Selected Letters of Laura Ingalls Wilder, in a letter from Laura Ingalls Wilder to Rose Wilder Lane, March 23, 1937:
You can see that all of this cost money. I would have no idea how much. I know Pa sent money home for doctor bills after he was working for the railroad. But Pa was no businessman, He was a hunter and trapper, a musician and poet.
Such a moving tribute to Pa — a wonderful, wonderful father.
If you’d like to discover some great children’s literature, here’s a list of just a few of my favorites.
What are some of your favorite children’s books? I’m always looking for new suggestions.
