This book was great! First you need to know that they own a farm then you need to know Pa, Ma, Laura and Carrie owned a farm. On their farm, they saw a machine. That machine was a Separater, which helped harvest the wheat. The beginning of the story was very exciting.

Then in the middle and interesting things happen. First, the family built a house of wood. Then, when they were building, Ma fell and twisted her leg. Next, they met a new neighbor. They also planted a garden.

The end was the best! It took a long time to settle. The winter was cold. The hard part of being a farmer is that good and bad things happen, especially in the winter. At the end, Ma got a brand new house and was very surpised and happy.

If I wrote this book, I would not change anything. I love the whole book, but I really love the ending the best because of the surprise! Pa is my favorite character because he is a great role model. Carrie is my least favorite because she's not a big part of the story.

I can relate to this story because Pa works a lot and my dad also works really hard. I think others should read this book, especially if they like history.
