I read this book aloud to my teenage children. We all loved it. We cried and laughed during the course of Little Britches' trials and tribulations. It depicts a true sense of ranching in that era in an easy to read and easy to follow story. We truly enjoyed this story of a family who moved from up north to Colorado. The book talked about hard work and determination and you read about the rewards they were able to reap from that. The family faced adversity but did not run from it and did not give up. I am glad I chose to read this aloud so I could share in the laughter and tears with my children. A couple of the characters use some curse words.
