Narrated by Cherry Jones
I am a country girl who grew up in a small farm town in southern Minnesota. Little House On the Prairie was a big deal for me as a girl. My family and I watched the show religiously. I read all the books. I visited the sites. I stood in the hole in Walnut Grove where the little house once was.
I got the idea to listen to these from the patrons at the library I work at. So many families were checking these out and listening to them together. I loved that! And when I discovered they were narrated by the amazing Cherry Jones, I knew I had to listen.
Cherry Jones has the perfect blend of wonder, naivete, and sweetness to portray Half Pint. I really felt transported to that little cabin in the woods; eating frozen snow with maple syrup and listening to Pa play the fiddle. I think it's important to experience Little House on every scale. Print, Audio and TV all are so different but still all very worthwhile and enjoyable.
Highly recommended. Already started Book 2.
