Editorial Reviews

"[Moody] has a splendid talent for bringing the ashes of the past into life."—Chicago Sunday Tribune

"This is a gallant book—from the first sentence until the last. It is a true story, written in the first person, written without sentimentality but with extraordinary drama."—Christian Science Monitor

"A most appealing book . . . Its genuineness and its simplicity will build up a large audience of enthusiastic readers."—San Francisco Chronicle

"You will search long . . . To find a more disarming and refreshing account of family life than Ralph Moody has set down in Little Britches."—Chicago Sunday Tribune

"Enthusiastically recommended for young and old."—Library Journal

"Ralph Moody’s books should be read aloud in every family circle in America"—Sterling North

"The story of the Moody family is told without embellishment in a simple, straight-forward style. It is especially suited for reading aloud as a family. The difficulties Ralph faces, the mishaps and consequences, will provoke quality discussions with middle schoolers and older students, although children as young as third grade will enjoy and benefit from the story."—Homeschooling Today
