My Take on the DVD
This is a great DVD set. My family are HUGE Little House on the Prairie fans, especially with the fact that my wife's family was from Walnut Grove, Minnesota from around the same time that Laura Ingalls Wilder was around the area. This was a well done DVD set and one that any fan of the series will enjoy. They have done a great job at digitally enhancing this series to making the colors and sound more vibrant than in previous DVD's that I have watched of this series in the past. If you have never experienced this series you should. There are so many family messages that I love to share with my own daughters from this series. Messages of family, friends and how to treat others are just a few of the themes and conversations that we have had in our own home, how about you?
