I read the first two books in this series, a few months ago, and didn't hesitate to snatch up copies to review, when they were offered up. Great for reading to children old enough to sit still for a short (chapter) story or for readers entering chapter-book territory, I can't recommend the series enough. They have a Christian bent; some books talk about God and prayer more than others, and they do so more in a teaching way (learning a lesson about being obedient, for example) than a preaching way. Excellent books, highly recommended!

Oh! These do look really good, and I did get a Little House vibe from the covers. I bet these books are just timeless, and I would love to get my hands on them! Great review, and great find here today!ReplyDelete
I have to say, in agreement I think, that every once in a while it's a great relief to read a clean and positive book! LOLReplyDelete
I really liked reading Little House on the Prairie growing up, so I probably would have loved these books too. Great post and happy Wednesday!ReplyDelete
Also, I’m a new follower— wonderful blog! Stop by my blog and follow me too? :) http://rachelbrookswrites.blogspot.com/
I have a vague recollection of these books from my childhood. I wonder if I'd remember the individual stories too. :)ReplyDelete
They are definitely timeless. I have absolutely loved reading this series.
Yes, it's truly a breath of fresh air to read something clean with a positive message. I feel awfully lucky to have had the opportunity to review the Grandma's Attic books.
I was a Litttle House addict, myself, so I really love the similarities to the LIttle House series (mischievous children, positive message, clean stories).
Thanks for following my blog! Sure, I'll drop by and follow in return. :)
You had such a cool childhood. LOL I'd never heard of these stories till they were offered for review (the first two -- last year, I think), even though they've been around for a long time. Sounds like you're due for a reread to check your memory!
