Little House in the Big Woods  - Laura Ingalls Wilder, Garth Williams Second reading: 4/10/2011I went nuts for this series beginning in 4th grade, so much so that I was convinced I'd been born in the wrong century. Given how crazy I was about these books, it's surprising I never went back to read them again before now. Thank you, Kressel, for the inspiration.The two memories that stayed with me about this book down through all these years were the way Pa played the fiddle at night and the part where they poured the maple syrup on snow. Reading it again refreshed my memory about a lot of other parts, but there were many things I honestly had no recall of whatsoever.
