Product Description:

Category Description for Little Britches Series:

Often touted as the "Little House for Boys," these books tell the story of author Ralph Moody, beginning as a young boy on a Colorado ranch in the early 1900's.

These books make absorbing read-alouds for younger children, too. Be aware, however, that there is some inappropriate language used - no doubt in keeping with the actual verbiage of rugged cowboys and characters of the time.

This is a required book for a class. I already purchased <br />, but cannot find it. Our local library does have this book, but it must be read at the library. So, I am ordering it again; when I find my first copy I will donate it to the library so that this fine book will be more accessible to the public.

I have to completely agree with Betsy's review; this series is one of the best available Our entire family boys and girls were completely enamored with this series It is very difficult to find a series like this one that will enthrall its audience and yet intertwine character building lessons of integrity throughout

Wow By far THE BEST FAMILY READ ALOUD EVER!!!!I have read and collected a lot of great books however the Moody Family Series is by far the best of the best CS Lewis said that a good children's book is one that an adult enjoys too Our set of Moody adventures sits high on the books shelf in a place of reverence and awe The stories have inspired us challenged us and captivated us We have laughed cried and thought deeply I am ever so thankful my good friend suggested them They make a great gift for families who are learning to read aloud together We will cherish them as a family for many years and generations to come

This is a fantastic book! Little Britches is my son's all time favorite book He reads it over and over I myself have read it twice and loved it both times Boys will love it for its cowboyish adventure Girls will love it for its great story line and moms will love it for the many great character lessons found within its pages Don't miss this book! It is sure to be a family favorite!
