I haven't read this one. It seems so sweet!

@Corinne - not only sweet but also catchy

Dearest Claudia,
Oh, I'm SO happy that I can comment for your A-Z Challenge. When I was young, I really LOVED the TV series and then I learned English through bi-lingual version when I was around 30 years old. I once wrote in my blog that my ideal image of the father is her father p;)
She really looks lovey lady in the picture you showed here♡♡♡ Thank you very much for choosing her, my friend.

Sending you lots of love and hugs from Japan, xoxo Miyako*

I love the Little House books! I devoured them as a child.

I feel like you did this one just for me! :) Wasn't she beautiful? Her books had (and still have) such an impact on me.

@Miyako - so happy you can relate so deeply to my post
@Talya - I know what you mean
@Laura - in a way I did, I thought of you while selecting the W, I am fully aware of what she means to you!

Hello, Claudia! Yay, love it that we both featured such a wonderful author today!! The Little House books are some of my favorites and I still re-read them every few years. I never got into the series because I didn't watch television when I was kid. I love the books!!

Happy A to Z-ing! from Laura Marcella @ Wavy Lines

I loved Laura Ingalls Wilder's books as a kid and I watched the TV show, too. It was fascinating to learn about pioneer life through Laura's eyes and her family was so lovable. I still have a set of all the books I bought as an adult.

@Laura - what a coincidence indeed, I smiled while reading your post
@Cat - lovely, I enjoyed them as well

I am so grateful she shared her life experiences with the world through her writing. My daughter read her books over and over and Little House on the Prairie was one of my favorite shows to watch as a child. :)

I loved her books. And I even watched the show. :)

Have fun with the rest of a-z.

Thank you for your comments, I appreciate them all!


"A story is not like a road to follow … it's more like a house. You go inside and stay there for a while, wandering back and forth and settling where you like and discovering how the room and corridors relate to each other, how the world outside is altered by being viewed from these windows. And you, the visitor, the reader, are altered as well by being in this enclosed space, whether it is ample and easy or full of crooked turns, or sparsely or opulently furnished. You can go back again and again, and the house, the story, always contains more than you saw the last time. It also has a sturdy sense of itself of being built out of its own necessity, not just to shelter or beguile you."
