Old-Timey Christmas

Laura Ingalls Wilder takes you into the pioneer world and what it was like to spend the holiday season in a little house before technology. The children entertained themselves and wished for little things like candy. It takes you back in time and is a classic Christmas story that I enjoyed reading to my daughter.

In a world full of technology, this is a good story to make people remember how important the little things are. Laura takes you through the different Christmases she's had in the big woods and on the prairie. I loved the "Meet Laura" section where it tells us who Laura really was. There's also some activities in the back of the book like word scramble, word search, and a sing-along of Jingle Bells.


Final Verdict: I absolutely love this story for the holiday season and think it should be read to all children to show them what life was like before technology.
