  Great Book!

This book is about a boy named Almanzo who lives on a farm. Almanzo learns not to give candy to pigs and how to drive oxen. I really liked it because I like animals and Laura Ingalls Wilder is a really good writer. You really should read this book to learn about life on a farm a long time ago.

It made me feel happy when Almonzo was honest with his father when he asked for a nickel and when he hadn't fooled with the colts. I wish there was a little more action in the book, but it was still good! My favorite part of the book is at the end, when he gets his own colt and $200. It made me feel mad at Almonzo when he didn't tell his mother and father about the stove polish in the parlor! I loved it when he was nice to his brother and sisters.
