Great book! May 13, 2008
Bought this for my 12 year old, but read it first, it was great. I laughed and teared up. Christian values, loving family, giving family, mystery, and humor all rolled into a great story of life in the 1950's.
Don't miss this one!
A delightful read aloud book for the family Feb 20, 2008
I started reading this book for myself... my morning sickness was still hitting hard in the afternoons, and I wanted something pleasant to help pass the time. I was sitting out in the garden reading it, when my 17 yo daughter came outside and sat with me. I started reading bits aloud to her... and one by one all of my six daughters wandered by and were hooked!
It really is a delightful book about a family in the 50s... they are without television or a phone so it gives insight to how crisis were handled back then. There are a couple of "emergencies" and little mysteries scattered throughout that come to a satisfying ending.
The family is a Christian one, and Christianity is woven throughout the book, but not overdone and unbelievable. My girls loved it from age four to age seventeen (it was a bit beyond my toddler's comprehension :) ). There is some romance, but it's subtle and fitting.
I think boys would enjoy the book too. There is a lot of "day to day" information about an Osage tribe in the late 1800s (games they played, how they lived) and since we recently read Little House on the Prairie (where the Ingalls family accidentally settled on Osage land in the late 1800s) - it really tied in together well in the girls' Native American studies.
I highly recommend this book to anyone looking for a entertaining, wholesome, well written read aloud for their family.
A Great Family Read Aloud Aug 22, 2007
This is a sweet story that will bring back a lot of memories for parents and grandparents. It's educational and as a homeschooling mother, I recommend it. There are godly values throughout and lots of surprises and warm fuzzies at the end.
