We have 4 boys & have read Little Britches - Father & I were Ranchers, and we are almost done with the Man of the Family book. They are excellent "boy" books. We read them as a family read aloud. We laugh & cry (well, mom & dad cry) There is some "rough & tough" cowboy language, but other than that, it teaches GREAT work ethics & working together as a family team. We highly recommend it. Our family plans on buying the whole series. There are 8 books in all.
