It was delightful. It reminded me a lot of Little House in the Big Woods, where yes, we had a lot of "this is how life was back then" facts but also a lot of sweet stories. Almanzo's Mother and Father remind me a lot of Laura's Ma and Pa. And Almanzo has the same innocence as Laura, but growing up on a thriving farm, giving us stories of pigs, horses, and pumpkins. It's interesting to think about the legacies of farm life, such as summer breaks off from school and fall county fairs.
