    1. I think it's a fair disclaimer to say that I have been a huge fan of Wendy McClure for many years, so I was very excited about this latest release. I knew going into it that it was a collection of short snippets, almost like an advice book gleaned from her studies of Little House on the Prairie. So I have no issue with the length or brevity of the book.The writing, as always, is solid and more than once I laughed out loud. I'd say about 95% of the 'chapters' (each an individual essay) was really [...]


    2. Read this immediately after reading The Wilder Life. I enjoyed it, but I should've read it right after the other. It's more of an afterword - more lessons to be learned from Laura World, that didn't quite fit with the narrative of the larger book. Definitely worth a read if you liked the Wilder Life.



    3. A must read for adults who grew up as fans of Laura Ingalls Wilder books. Have you ever really thought, since childhood, about what it would have been like using a pig's bladder for a balloon? It is totally crazy. McClure explores this and other (crazy) details from Laura's world.


    4. This is a shortie but a goodie. (And at $3 for an ebook, who can complain?) McClure's book is a series of aphorisms based upon the Little House writings of Laura Ingalls Wilder, as well as some follow-up thoughts collected after the publication of "The Wilder Life". "Don't Trade the Baby" might be best appreciated by those who have already read "Wilder Life" but anyone well versed in the Little House books will smile at the wisdom of savoring candy (or eating all of the sugar in the barrel) or k [...]


    5. This was just okay for me. It seems to be an extension of her thoughts on her book "The Wilder Life". It was mildly funny, but no real depth. I think this would be better incorporated into her other book. It's not strong enough as a stand alone.


    6. I could listen to Wendy McClure talk about Laura-World for hours. Actually, she doesn't even have to talk about Little House things; I enjoy her take on any subject. I was disappointed this book was so short, but it was more fun than the time Pa spelled down the whole town!


    7. Barely more than an outline. Interesting bits and pieces but I'd suggest reading The Wilder Life. This felt more like notes for that book or the chapters that hadn't made the cut. A pleasant enough diversion but not nearly as good as The Wilder Life.


    8. I'm not a Kindle person but I had to read this after reading The Wilder Life and I'm so glad I did. Wendy makes me smile and I if I wasn't alredy reading the Little House books to my daughters, I would be rereading them myself!


    9. I liked The Wilder Life and this short e-book has more stories and reflections in a similar vein. I read it pretty much in one sitting, but I'll be revisiting my favorites (like the two "pig parts" vignettes).




    10. This the perfect quick companion to Wendy's excellent book "The Wilder Life." Though I still maintain that if you are the woman without the baby that trade is a good one.


    11. This seemed like an afterthought to her book. Why didn't she just put these in her book somehow? I am not sure, but I wish she would have.


    12. I simply love the Little House books. I adored Wendy McClure's memoir and this added ebook was great. I find the humor entertaining and I really enjoyed this one.



    13. Short and sweet. I loved The Wilder Life, so it's nice to read a little more. Wendy McClure is funny and enjoyable to read. The pig bladder balloon had me laughing!


    14. Read this in about 30 minutes. It's an e-book, but very short. More of a long pamphlet. More of the same from The Wilder Life. Cute. Not worth the 2.99 price I paid for it, though.
