Farmer Boy by Laura Ingalls Wilder is about her husband’s childhood in update New York. Of all the Little House books, it is the coziest as it shares so much about family life, holidays and seasons.
Almanzo is the youngest of four children. With an older brother and two older sisters, he often finds himself being bossed around. Throughout the book Almanzo is slowly growing up, learning about real life, and learning important life lessons. The book is a great look at family life, farming during that time period, and about making wise choices.
If you’ve never read the Little House books, it’s never too late! My husband read them for the first time when he was in his forties and enjoyed them, especially Farmer Boy.
