My favorite holiday title is: Little House in the Big Woods, by Laura Ingalls Wilder

I am: Catherine Terry.

This book is my favorite because: "Ma, Pa, Laura, and Mary stepped off the pages and into my heart years ago. At Christmas time, I like to refresh myself in their simpler lifestyle and love of family."

My favorite holiday tradition is: "I always love the time when we pull out our box of ornaments to decorate our Christmas tree. Each ornament has a special meaning. I like to turn off the house lights in the evening and simply look at our tree."

    Amazon.com Review: Although the Little House stories are traditionally seen as "girl" books, boys might be happily surprised if they take another peek at their sisters' shelves. Little House in the Big Woods--the first book of the series and Laura Ingalls Wilder's first children's book--is full of the thrills, chills, and spills typically associated with "boy" books. Any boy or girl who has fantasized about running off to live in the woods will find ample information in these pages to manage a Wisconsin snowstorm, a panther attack, or a wild sled ride with a pig as an uninvited guest. Every chapter divulges fascinatingly intricate, yet easy-to-read, details about pioneer life in the Midwest in the late 1800s, from bear-meat curing to maple-tree sapping to homemade bullet making.


Catherine Terry, from Colorado Springs, CO, is the owner of At Home with Christian Fiction. In addition to writing for children, Terry enjoys reviewing and publishing to her site, AHWCF.
