Farmer Boy by Laura Ingalls Wilder. Originally pulished in 1933.
This review was written by our 9-year-old daughter. I do minimal editing to her writing when I post her reviews. Like Paddington, this book was part of assigned reading for her literature class.
Farmer Boy is a nonfictional classic by Laura Ingalls Wilder. It is about Laura Ingalls Wilder’s husband Almanzo Wilder, and his childhood.
It is very engaging and entertaining. I have not read many classics yet but this has to be one of my favorite’s. Once you start it is very hard to stop.
It is also very easy to read. Some of my favorite chapters are Birthday, Independence day, and also The Fair.
In the chapter The Fair Almanzo enters the biggest pumpkin contest. He fed his pumpkin milk everyday. It was so big Father had to put in the wagon the night before.When he got to the fair he won the contest and everybody asked him what he had done to make it so big. He was going to lie but his father was standing there, he thought that he would get disqualified and get his ribbon taken away, but he had to tell the truth so he did. He had a wonderful day at the fair.
I highly recommend this book. Hope you enjoy it as much as I did.
