Susan Bock recommends Little House in the Big Woods by Laura Ingalls Wilder because the theme of family is timeless and classic. "When I was 9ish I lived in those books- they swallowed up a whole summer vacation. It wasn’t the setting as much as the way the family pulled together. The family values inspired me so much that my daughters are named after the characters in these biographical stories."
The book that started it all! Little House in the Big Woods is the first book in Laura Ingalls Wilder's treasured Little House series, which is based on her life growing up as an American pioneer. Told from four-year-old Laura's point-of-view, this story begins in 1871 in a little log cabin on the edge of the Big Woods of Wisconsin. Laura lives in the little house with her Pa, her Ma, her sisters Mary and Carrie, and their trusty dog, Jack.
