Laura Ingalls Wilder would be delighted with Cherry Jones's narration of her classic work. Jones enlivens this beloved compendium of frontier life for a new generation. She tells with verve the details of family chores and special events. Yet these are just the backdrop for the adventures of young Laura, the exuberant and not so perfect sister whom countless young people have championed--a girl who would like as big a piece of meat as her older sister; who can be frightened by her father's boisterous play but relishes his singing and fiddle playing; who likes churning and baking days best; and who remembers every detail of each family gathering. Jones's light and fresh tone brings a childlike wonder and enthusiasm to the familiar story as it unfolds once again. Share this recording with the whole family. A.R.
