24 Days of Christmas Books: Christmas in the Big Woods

christmas in the big woodsI realize I may be in the minority but probably have stronger memory of the Laura Ingalls Wilder's Little House on the Prairie television show than I do the books. I know I read them at one point but I grew up in Prince Edward Island, the lane of Anne-with-an-e. Little House just didn't grab me the same way, but I think that makes sense. That said, who I certainly wouldn't object sitting down with Christmas in the Big Woods, especially if I had a child to read it to. Doesn't Christmas in a cozy cottage in the woods sound lovely? Roaring fires, yummy food, the smell of pine trees in the air...

Someone needs to remind me that they did not have indoor plumbing in the big woods. Pronto.
