Little Threads Review by Jennifer Ladewig

Waverly, PA 18471

Little Threads is an all too forgotten book written by Elizabeth Prentiss in 1868. Thanks to Lamplighter Publishers they have reproduced rare books from the 17th, 18th, and 19th centuries into a collection called the Lamplighter Collection. This book is 174 pages. This book is sold for $19.00 and can also be purchased in downloadable eBook format for $15.00.

This book is suitable for most ages. This is a perfect book to read aloud to younger children. Older children and adults will find this book to be both engaging and insightful. 

Little Threads tells the story of the very different lives of two girls, one who comes from a wealthy family and the other who lives in poverty. Little Tangled Thread lives a comfortable, privileged life but she is difficult, unruly, hot-tempered, and disrespectful. Her poor mother prays to God to change the heart of Little Tangled Thread. Then we meet Little Golden Thread. She comes from a broken home and has very little. Despite her circumstances, Little Golden Thread is cheerful, kind, thoughtful, and thankful. Tragedy befalls Little Golden Thread and her mother. This is when the lives of Little Tangled Thread and Little Golden Thread unite for a sweet and heartwarming happening of events.

Little Threads is definitely a newfound favorite. I read this book aloud to my 3rd grader and she loved it. My 5th grader read this book and she also loved the story. The book incited some great discussions with my children. I personally found this book to be rich in content, insightful, and a true treasure. I would most definitely put this book in my favorite books category. The teachable lessons woven throughout the story are priceless. I would highly recommend this book.
