Laura Ingalls Wilder was born in 1867 in the log cabin described in Little House in the Big Woods. She and her family traveled by covered wagon across the Midwest. Later, Laura and her husband, Almanzo Wilder, made their own covered-wagon trip with their daughter, Rose, to Mansfield, Missouri. There, believing in the importance of knowing where you began in order to appreciate how far you've come, Laura wrote about her childhood growing up on the American frontier. For millions of readers Laura lives on forever as the little pioneer girl in the beloved Little House books.
Renée Graef received her bachelor's degree in art from the University of Wisconsin at Madison. She is the illustrator of numerous titles in the Little House publishing program, as well as Rodgers and Hammerstein's My Favorite Things and E.T.A Hoffman's The Nutcracker, adapted by Janet Schulman.

I had wondered what the artwork would be like, but it is lovely, and the stories are written in a very easy to read format.
Linda Flegal5 Stars Out Of 5August 7, 2000Linda FlegalThis is a great book for youngsters, I would like to collect the whole series for my girls to enjoy for a long time. The illustrations are beautiful, and the writing is very descriptive and interesting to young children.
Q: Do these stories teaches christian values ? The pictures are wonderful ... I can tell it's a clean book , but does it teach something to children ?
These books paint a historical picture of life in the late 1800's, but do not teach a particular Biblical lesson.
