Product Description

Laura Ingalls' story begins in 1871 in a little log cabin on the edge of the Big Woods in Wisconsin. Four-year-old Laura lives in the little house with her Pa, her Ma, her sisters Mary and Carrie, and their trusty dog Jack. Pioneer life is sometimes hard, since the family must grow or catch all their own food as they get ready for the cold winter. But it is also exciting as Laura and her folks celebrate Christmas with homemade toys and treats, do the spring planting, bring in the harvest, and make their first trip into town. And every night they are safe and warm in their little house, with the happy sound of Pa's fiddle sending Laura and her sisters off to sleep.

And so begins Laura Ingalls Wilder's beloved story of a pioneer girl and her family. The nine Little House books have been cherished by generations of readers as both a unique glimpse into America's frontier past and a heartwarming, unforgettable story. Recommended for ages 8 to 12.

Author Bio

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.

Garth Williams began his work on the pictures for the Little House books by meeting Laura Ingalls Wilder at her home in Missouri, and then he traveled to the sites of all the little houses. His charming art caused Laura to remark that she and her family "live again in these illustrations."

    I am 7 years old and in 3rd grade, and I just finished reading "Litttle House In the Big Woods" and I thought it was a really good book. On the whole the book was an easy read, but some of the words were hard. I liked the pictures in the book. I think the person who drew the pictures was very talented. I found some of the chapters very long, but that's okay because some were short. The book had some very funny parts in it, like when Pa thought he saw a bear but it was only a tree stump. I also liked it that Laura and Mary like to play dolls just like my sisters and I. I would recommend this book to all by friends and I am looking forward to reading the next book in the series.
