 Ralph Moody's Little Britches and Man of the Family

My favorite books are the ones by Ralph Moody. They are not particularly
well-written but they are books that I read over and over to our kids. The
first tow in the series are Moody's account of his childhood and growing up in Colorado. They are Little Britches and Man of the family. What makes these such good books to share with kids are the moral lessons that Moody learned from his parents by being shown and not told how to live a good, honest life. The stories are full of hardship and warmth and were favorites of mine growing up and I am so happy to find that they are back in print.
