Mary Emma & Co.

It is amazing how all of these books keep your attention. I highly suggest reading or listening to all of the Little Britches Series.

Aye

My husband grew up reading Ralph Moody books. I had never heard of him. I enjoyed the story so much. However, the reading is somewhat stilted at times, perhaps meant to sound like a child narrating. I could do without the accents applied to the characters, and I’d love a softer “a” and “the” too.

Swells my heart

This is a wonderful, true story of real life, blessing in the midst of hardship and proof that wholesomeness and strong family ties can bring joy, regardless of your circumstances. Also demonstrates the benefits of hard work brought tears to my eyes on several occasions.

Wonderful story

I learned what a May basket is. What treasures these older tales have in them for those of us who abide in a modern world. These are must read for everyone!

Read on!

As this series continues Ralph’s characters grow and we grow with them in a time that was both harder and simpler. Reward yourself by reading this one in sequence.
