Little House on the Prairie Season 8

Did you grow up watching or reading the Little House on the Prairie series by Laura Ingalls Wilder? I sure did! Take a step back and focus on core family values, old-time morals and an emphasis on family, team work and living within our means together with Laura Ingalls and the Little House on the Prairie series. Season 8 of Little House on the Praire is now out DVD – as a deluxe remastered edition, and it can be purchased on Amazon.

A year and a half ago I started reading the Little House on the Prairie books with our kids and we are now on the last book in the series. Every Friday we have a movie night starting with reading Little House on the Prairie, then watch one episode, and then the kids get to watch a movie on tv or a free rental, but sometimes they plead to watch a second episode of Little House on the Prairie instead. It is the one day a week, where we order in, and on the few occasions that we’ve had family stay with us, they are always touched by the effect the show and the book has on the kids and themselves. It has been a great way to dial back the emphasis on electronics and materialism, and it something that all of our kids, from our soon-to0-be three-year-old daughter to our thirteen-year-old son look forward to.

Every episode of Little House on the Prairie has teachable moments, and I often use them as conversation starters about sensitive topics or about life in general. We talk a lot about living within our mean, the importance of family and compassion, and now that we are on season seven, we talk a lot about how to treat our spouses, how to find a spouse with likeminded values etc., and it is just amazing how many great discussions we’ve had throughout our time spent with the Ingalls family.

I can highly recommend starting the Little House on the Prairie series as a family, but the book collection is also great for elementary school children. Our two-year-old daughter requested that I braided her hair the other day – “just like Laura”. hile she did not understand much, when we first started reading the series and watching the show, it has taught her a lot, and she now sits patiently and listens while I read and she is eager for her brothers to come home on Fridays, so that we can clean, do homework and watch Little House on the Prairie.

Buying the entire Little House on the Prairie series is not cheap, but it is an investment in my kids that I consider worthwhile. There is so much junk on television, and it is refreshing to put on some good quality television once in a while, where the kids actually learn about life and values. I’ve won one of our DVD sets, and I purchased one used on Amazon, but the rest I’ve purchased close to the release date. I’ve noticed that this is when the price is lowest and with free shipping.

The Hallmark channel is showing the Little House on the Prairie series on television, but it is not the same as watching the show from the beginning, one episode at a time.

 

Did you read the Little House on the Prairie books or watch the show? Did you read or watch with your kids?
