Recently my oldest said Little House in the Big Woods was boring.
Having not read the book myself, I couldn’t change that fact or argue that it’s not. My wife really enjoyed the entire Little House series, but I had nothing.
(Except my wife’s excellent taste of course 😉 )
So I told her to stick with it – it might have a slow start, but once it gets going you could end up liking it.
One of my favorite series, the Lord of the Rings, started out slow – but once I hit the Council of Elrond I was off and running.
Could the same be true for her and Big Woods?
I’m happy to report she’s loving the book now and my advice paid off … this time!
Nothing wrong with putting down a book that’s not doing it for you (I’m looking at you, Pride & Prejudice), but gets into the wide world of literature I’m glad she stuck with this one.
