They settle into a house made of sod on the banks of beautiful Plum Creek. Soon Pa builds them a sturdier house, with real glass windows and a hinged door. Laura and Mary go to school, help with the chores around the house, and fish in the creek. Pa's fiddle lulls them all to sleep at the end of the day. But then disaster strikes—on top of a terrible blizzard, a grasshopper infestation devours their wheat crop. Now the family must work harder than ever to overcome these challenges.The nine books in the timeless Little House series tell the story of Laura's real childhood as an American pioneer, and are cherished by readers of all generations. They offer a unique glimpse into life on the American frontier, and tell the heartwarming, unforgettable story of a loving family sticking together through thick and thin.

This was always one of my favorites of the Little House series, perhaps because there is much to correlate with the TV series and its beginning. I loved watching it as a child in the 70's and forward.
Cherry Jones continues to do a stellar job in narrating this beloved series of books.

My 6 year old son has listened to 3 of the LIW books and loves them. He has even listened to some CDs more than once. He says he cannot get enough! I only wish the library website listed the order. We had to go to Amazon.com to see the order in which the 9 books go. Also, I wish the library had the last 3 on CD...they only have the books.
