Explications
ahef1963: A childhood favourite; I read it so often that the spine fell apart.
Diane-bpcb: MAJOR SPOILER: (Haven't figured out the new Spoiler offering in LT.) Will never forget reading somewhere something by a girl who always fought with her sister, and how she felt when this sister, having read the book first, calls out, "Beth died."
blakelylaw: I had so many different editions. Read & reread them all; my favorite chapters changing as I grew older. SIGH - All of those lovely books destroyed in a house fire.

ahef1963: My favourite of the Little House books.
Diane-bpcb: This was my favorite of the Little House books, which I just loved. My sister and I would play covered wagon, using our twin beds as our wagons, etc. Little did we know, in those days, that ancestors had gone West in a wagon train.
