My older boy loves these books and wants to read them every night, while the younger one listens in sometimes, but would really rather read something else. I love the history and geography that is being learned. ( )

This one for me will always be The One With the Grasshoppers.

Said grasshoppers destroy the Ingalls’ wheat crop and smother their farm like a Biblical visitation. Worse, they stay. And lay millions of eggs.

Then one day they start marching on the ground, robotically, toward the west, finally taking their bows without so much as a by your leave.

Another bit that stamps itself in memory is the prairie fire that brings the “wheels of fire”, or burning tumbleweeds, that also beset the Ingalls home.

“On the Banks of Plum Creek” recounts hardships like the fires in “Little House On the Prairie” and the blizzards in “The Long Winter”, but it’s funnier than those books. This is never more so than when Pa comes out of his den within shouting distance of the house; also when the girls bring in too much firewood; and when Laura, having attended church, stops feeling wickedness for Nellie Oleson and feels merely a “little bit of mean gladness”.

The book also has the child-eye perspective that is so prominent in “Little House On Big Woods”. But in that book Laura saw things that, though they were brand new to her, she could at least name, like a lake, or a town. In this book she’s constantly seeing things she has no name for, as when she first sees a belfry (“a tiny room with no walls and nothing in it”), or a rug carpet (the “whole floor was covered with some kind of heavy cloth that felt rough under Laura’s bare feet”).

And a blackboard, chalk and eraser: "On the wall behind Teacher’s desk there was a smooth space of boards painted black. Under it was a little trough. Some kind of short, white sticks lay in the trough, and a block of wood with a woolly bit of sheepskin pulled tightly around it and nailed down. Laura wondered what those things were."

All of this would have been ruined if the adult author, leaving the child’s perspective, had named these things before Laura could work them out herself.

The book is constantly playing like this with perspective. We are never told what something is until we’re shown what it looked like to Laura – whether it’s the leeches that she finds on her legs after taking a swim, or the burning, spinning tumbleweeds, or that visiting swarm of locusts: "The cloud was hailing grasshoppers. The cloud was grasshoppers. Their bodies hid the sun and made darkness. Their thin, large wings gleamed and glittered. The rasping whirring of their wings filled the whole air and they hit the ground and the house with the noise of a hailstorm."

I read the last 170 pages of this book in one day, and I’m a slow reader.

One of the most enjoyable, and startling, reads I can remember.

This book has a few unique stamps on it, and I could have dubbed it The One With Walnut Grove; or The One With the Hobbit Hole; or The One Where Pa Hibernates Like a Bear.

But nothing beats those grasshoppers. ( )

Ma, Pa, Laura, Mary, Carrie, and their bulldog Jack move to Minnesota this time, live in a sod house for a bit, then move into a new home built by Pa and a friendly neighbor. They live through a swarm of grasshoppers and several blizzards this time around, and Laura discovers leeches in a stagnant pond (*cringe*).

This is the book in the series that introduces us to the setting for the classic tv show, complete with Nellie Oleson and her bratty curls. I'm fascinated by how much more I can see in the story reading it as an adult. As a kid, I blindly loved the whole family (although Mary always struck me as too goody-goody), but now it's clear that Pa was probably always just a half step ahead of creditors and his poor life choices would be comical if they weren't so tragic. But Laura is still a girl I hugely identify with, just as I did as a kid, and I'm happy that Charlie is enjoying the series (although he's a much more sophisticated reader than I was and has few illusions about the wisdom of some of Pa's choices).

I finished reading this book to my kids at night - we usually read a chapter each night. I really identified with this book as a kid, and I could feel the old perceptions and memories as I read it. Winters always seemed colder to me as a kid because I read this book. I remember when we had a lot of snow one winter and there were big drifts out in our backyard. I would go and dig in the drifts and that linked me with parts of this story. Also, tumbleweed and grasshoppers, which were a small part of my childhood (I was paid money for each tumbleweed sprout I pulled and each grasshopper I eliminated from the garden).

The constant struggle against everyday life in this story was a bit of an echo for me, with the recession in the early 80's and our move to a new home (making new friends, encountering new things).

I think for this reason this is my favorite book of the series. ( )
