Ut in spite of the hard work Almanzo has fun too And was there ever a boy who loved horses Was there ever a boy so happy with a farmer's li. T provide for his family This never happens to Almanzo s dad2 They take you through the whole farming season from trashing the hay to cutting p the ice to gathering potatoes in great great detail It s really a pleasure to read It s also a big farm like I mentioned so they re commercial than the Ingalls farm You get to see the process of how for example they sell their butter which is pretty cool3 THE FOOD I ve never come across another book that is as lushly descriptive as this one in terms of food I thought Harry Potter might Do It At Some Point But It it at some point but it to disappoint in that respect Being loaded working from 5 AM in the fields before the days the dangers of saturated fats or Atkins were known glorious food descriptions I can t even begin to recount them but I rge that you check this book out for yourself I d also make sure to check it out with the original illustrations Much wailing and gnashing of teeth this morning as we finished Farmer Boy My student could not believe it was over Going to be hard to top this one in the coming months Not sure how many times I have be hard to top this one in the coming months Not sure how many times I have this but I am thinking five I believe after Little House in the Big Woods it is the best book in the Little House series Goodbye Almanzo Not sure when we will meet again Are you hungry yetMuch of Laura s childhood was spent in near starvation While they always had something to eat it was never enough for the family to be satisfiedThus when Laura wrote about Almanzo her future husband s childhood she focused on the most idyllic parts and what she wanted for her own childhood and her child which was a full stomach and stable home Almanzo simply ate He ate ham and chicken and turkey and dressing and cranberry jelly he ate potatoes and gravy succotash baked beans and boiled beans and onions and white bread and rye n injun bread and sweet pickles and jam and preserves Then he drew a long breath and he ate pie I swear my stomach rumbled every ten minutesAfter a book of this I began searching for a cookbook and luckily there are books aplenty based on this series The Little House Cookbook My Little House Cookbook which I cannot wait to tryNow the entire plot of Farmer Boy did not solely revolve around food we also get a look into farm life from the perspective of a wealthy farmer Almanzo s father loved farming and did his best to impress that love to his son with great success There was no time to lose no time to waste in rest or play The life of the earth comes Le seigneur des anneaux : La communaut de L'anneau, tome 1 / Les deux tours, tome 2 / Le Retour du Roi, tome 3 up with a rush in the springtime Reading as Almanzo completed farm chores and tamed his oxen kindled my brief but fervent desire to become a farmer in fifth grade wellntil the impracticality of city life ruined that dreamThat being said not even Almanzo s cushy childhood was left The History of the Future untouched by the harshness of living in the late 1800s If the teacher has to thrash you again Royal I ll give you a thrashing you ll remember There was one crazy scene where their teacher cracked a whip around the school room due to some seriously rowdy teens could you imagine the look on the PTA Mom s facesWhile this one was not as endearing nor as thoughtful as Laura s other novels I certainly enjoyed reading it This was fun way to learn about life a hundred years agoAudiobook CommentsRead by Cherry Jones and accompanied by Paul Woodiel on the fiddle Love this audiobookYouTube Blog Instagram Twitter Snapchat mirandareads Happy Reading As a child this was my least favorite Little House book as it wasn t about Laura But now as an adult I have grown to like and appreciate it as another perspective on pioneer living Laura Ingalls Wilder honors and respects her husband by telling his story too The story of Almanzo Wilder s chil. Rother and sisters on his father's farm in New YorkAlmanzo's chores get himp at dawn and keep him working till dinner summer and winter I enjoyed listening to this engagingly narrated and enchanting story I won t recap my thoughts on the story you can read my review of the print version here Listening to the audio version after reading the book reinforced the story for me and many scenes definitely stood out Additionally language differences also stood out when heard instead of read One instance is the family s Sanzoku Ou - King of Bandits Vol. 9 use of be as in Be you sick Almanzo instead of the conjugations of to be that wese today Another was the pronunciation of giddap this was the first time I had heard it pronounced that way I had read it as the common and familiar giddyup so of course it sounded funny when I heard it Both of these examples led me to believe that the Wilders were formal than their counterparts The Ingalls It s another small but noteworthy point of comparison when learning about Almanzo s childhood versus Laura s I have a hard time with audio books I find myself tuning out and daydreaming when I should be listening but I will try the others in the Little House series Cherry Jones is easy and enjoyable to listen to you can t help but want to listen to her read of the story SO MUCH WORK And they all seem to enjoy it even create MORE work for themselves instead of looking for opportunities to have some leisure time or a nap at least I would have never made it in those olden days I am just too lazy Upon finishing Little House on the Prairie the kids and I were dying to know where the Ingalls adventures would take them next but discovered that the next in the series focuses on Almanzo Wilder Laura s future husband We were immediately taken in by the descriptions of late 1800 s farm life in pper New York State We were struck in particular by the richness Almanzo s family enjoyed in comparison with the Ingalls who seemed to be moving all the time One of my favorite features of this book is the lengthy descriptions of Almanzo s mother s cooking That boy ate donuts and pie than would be good for anyone not doing the the number of chores he was My annual re read this time with Heidi My favorite of the Little House books from start to finish but especially the *CHAPTER WHERE MA AND PA GO AWAY FOR A * where Ma and Pa go away for a and the house falls into disarray as the children eat cake slice watermelon blacken the parlor wall and most importantly se Bitva na Hackhamské pláni (Hraničářův učeň: První roky, up all the sugar making ice cream Still no other author has ever captured the life of pioneers inite this way and the good eats will make your mouth water I loved all the Laura Ingalls Wilder books in particular Little House in the Big Woods Little Town on the Prairie and These Happy Golden Years They are books I can read and savor over and over again But I Just Need I just need give a shout out to my absolute favorite Laura Ingalls Wilder book and that is Farmer Boy to me Farmer Boy is the Kent Hrbeks Tales from the Minnesota Twins Dugout under appreciated middle child of the Laura Ingalls collection People forget about it just because it doesn t start with Little or end with Prairie It is about Almanzo who Laura eventually marries There are several reasons why I love this book than the others1 Almanzo and his family are loaded Well compared to Laura they are They run a much bigger farm than she does and the father is something of a gentleman farmer not like the wild Charles who is all over the place and doesn t know what he s doing let s be honest a lot of the books are based around the fact that Charles is a moron first they leave the big woods where the rest of their family is Then they re stuck somewhere on the friggin prairie and have to ford the friggin river and almost lose Jack Then they re living in some kind ofnderground burrow Then they re starving through the winter because Charles is an idiot who can.
