    "Good book with a good message! This book should be required reading in all elementary school. It's insightful for those outside of the "norms" that need to be encouraged with a positive message. If your child has ever been bullied this book will especially mean something. Even if your child is the bully, it may help teach them perspective."

    "I remember reading this book as a child, and the impression it made on me. I was probably about ten. I'd read the other books in the Little House on the Prairie series, and I knew that there were hardships in the lives of the Ingalls family, but nothing prepared me for what they go through in The Long Winter. It gave me an appreciating form the convenience and the actual plenty of modern life. This is a great book for kids to read to learn about what life really was in the 19th century, and to put things into perspective."

    " if seeing my beautifully wrecked paperback didn't convince them to read it, then maybe the fact that I eventually had to replace it with the same edition, only hardcover, would do it. Or the fact that for those times I just can't lug around the real deal, I also had to download the ebook (though a different edition which my OCD thinks sorta sucks). In an interview with Christopher Lee, the actor who portrayed Saruman in the Peter Jackson film adaptations, he shared how he re-reads The Lord of the Rings each year. If I could get you to read it even once in your life I would be happy. And so would you! P.S. For those people who think video games are the root of all evil, I would have to beg them to make an exception for an Xbox game called Shadow of Mordor. Now, I know diddly squat about gaming but my hubby and our son play that game together. Imagine my thrill when my 10 year old came asking all kinds of questions that had us mining the appendices at the end of the book for answers. He's not up for reading the book just yet, but the spark is there. Of course, it didn't hurt that I earned some massive cool points for knowing what was going on in his game world! "
