In an attempt to explore the validity of literary text as well as literary reading for teaching intercultural communication, this paper analyzes theLittle House on the Prairie in relation to a developmental model proposed by Milton J. Bennett. Of six stages in the model, aspects of Denial, Defense, Acceptance, and Adaptation were observed. It is noteworthy that such diverse responses to a different culture are described in this book written for children. It is suggested that, with proper instruction, this novel could serve as a suifable textbook to teach intercultural communication.
