What do they read to kids these days?

During a conversation with Jessie the other day, I realized that I was always referencing the Laura Ingalls Wilder Little House series.

Then I got thinking about other books from my childhood that were about what you might term survivalist skills: Swiss Family Robinson, My Side of the Mountain. And later on, anything by Helen and Scott Nearing,

These should be required reading for anyone considering farming. Heck, they should be required reading to any kids growing up. Which begs the question: what are they reading to kids these days???

  1. Oops, meant Little House in the Big Woods. That’s the first book in the series.

  2. Oh my goodness. Just the best kids series about homesteading ever written. Laura’s family went west in the 1870s and 1880s, and it’s all about all those farm skills that farmers today are rediscovering.

    then go to the library and check out The Little House on the Prairie. You won’t be able to stop reading, and then you will read them to your kids.
