Laura Ingalls Wilder (1867–1957) was born in a log cabin in the Wisconsin woods. With her family, she pioneered throughout America’s heartland during the 1870s and 1880s, finally settling in Dakota Territory. She married Almanzo Wilder in 1885; their only daughter, Rose, was born the following year. The Wilders moved to Rocky Ridge Farm at Mansfield, Missouri, in 1894, where they established a permanent home. After years of farming, Laura wrote the first of her beloved Little House books in 1932. The nine Little House books are international classics. Her writings live on into the twenty-first century as America’s quintessential pioneer story.Doris Ettlinger, a graduate of Rhode Island School of Design, has illustrated many books for children. She lives in Warren County, New Jersey.

We have been reading the little house series at home and I thought they would enjoy seeing the illustrations in these books. The books have been a huge hit! The illustrations are lovely to look at and help the little people see what life was like "back then".
We also purchased the paper doll set, which is adorable-my girls love playing with these as well.

Full-page illustrations (inspired by the original artwork by Garth Williams) bring these treasured stories to life in vivid color. Each book selects a story from one of the first 3 books in the Little House series. The language is slightly simpler, making it an excellent option for introducing the Little House books to early readers. I just bought all the books in this series for my children and we love them!

Rhonda Owens5 Stars Out Of 5December 12, 2008Rhonda OwensI am a grandmother and have loved these books since I was a small child. The First Little House books are great for my grandchildren; preschoolers, I can read to them and elementary students, they enjoy reading the books themselves. All like the pictures.
