Over the course of eight books, Pa shares plenty of advice and wisdom with his family, but mostly Laura. The well-intentioned advice not only taught Laura, but has taught thousands (millions?) of young readers about how to be a good, reliable person. Pa began the series sharing his advice in the form of story, but he looked to the brevity of platitudes to help him teach his girls when time was short and he was tired from tons of work.
