Now that I have a son, I think about the Little House books from the male point of view more and more. Every once in a while, I even think about asking the Man of the Place to read them. But I don’t, because I know he’d do it. And I know he doesn’t have the time. But I do have a little internal chuckle thinking of him reading about Laura and Almanzo’s courtship or Ma’s delaine.
So I was tickled to read this post by a guy reading Little Town on the Prairie to his kids. Oh no, it’s time for Mary to go to college? What does he know about making clothes? As his kids found out, not all that much.
