Jack The Faithful!

The Adventures of Laura and Jack by Laura Ingalls Wilder- a book cobbled together of stories of Jack the Dog, culled from the the rest of the Little House books. Jack was a faithful friend to Laura- and the rest of the Ingalls'- as well as a courageous guard dog, something much needed for pioneer life! In this book, Jack follows the Ingalls' from the Big Woods on to Kansas where he almost drowns while fording a river. But he's made of stronger stuff, as Laura soon discovers, when he makes his way back to the Ingalls'- who thought for sure he was lost to them. Later we see his loyalty proven time and again as he stays with the women while Pa makes his necessary trips and even read of Jack's skill as a farm hand as he helps Laura round up the scattered cattle time and again. As an adult who read the Little House series as a youngster, I enjoyed returning to Laura Ingalls Wilder's prose. Simple words, simple stories- but so full of warmth. Strange how her books are as comforting to me now as they were back then. A sweet little book, I'm sure any kid would love to have read to them- or to read themselves!

Laura and Jack, The Best Book Ever!

The book is very interesting because it showed me what it was like back in the 1800s. There are a lot of great characters in this book. Their dog Jack has nice colors and he really listens to his owners. Laura takes good care of her dog Jack and she listens to her parents very well. I like how Laura and Jack play in the woods together. Laura and Jack are best friends. Ma takes good care of her kids and she showed her family how to make food. Pa plows the fields and he makes the money. The whole family works together. At the end of the book, the family finds a cozy home to live in.

A terrific book

I read this book when I was nine or ten. Now I'm reading the Little House novels. But I still remember how much I loved the chapter books, especially this one. It tells about Laura Ingalls and her adventures with her dog, Jack. I got really sad when the family lost Jack while crossing a river on their way to Kansas, and they thought he had died. But I loved when that night, an animal came to where the Ingalls were. It had bright eyes, and they thought it was a wolf! It turned out that the "wolf" was Jack! He hadn't died after all! The book told of lots of other adventures Laura had with Jack. I recommend this book to girls seven to ten. If you read this book, I know you'll enjoy it.

Adventures Of Laura & Jack

This book is very, very interesting. My seven year old daughter loved this book. The book is about the dfferent homesteads that Laura and her family had lived and the adventures of not only Laura's, but Jack, her bulldog, as well. This book is bound to keep any child on the edge of their sits with the dangerous experiences that Laura and Jack and her family face. The reader of this book with experience many different emotions from being happy to tears of sadness. I recommend this book to all children.
