Publisher Comments:

Laura Ingalls's story begins in 1871 in a little log cabin on the edge of the Big Woods of 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.

About the Author

Laura Ingalls Wilder was born in the Wisconsin woods in 1867. She wrote the Little House books based on her own experiences growing up on the Western frontier. Just like the characters in her stories, Laura and her family traveled by covered wagon across the Midwest as they moved from place to place. She and her husband, Almanzo, finally settled down in Mansfield, Missouri, where she lived until she was ninety years old.

Little House in the Big Woods is a testament to life in pioneering times while being a timeless account of family. When I read Laura Ingalls Wilder's stories of daily life with her family in the 1870s in the Big Woods, I feel like I am listening to a grandmother or great-grandmother sharing with me about what it was like when she was a little girl. Life has changed in many ways since Laura's time; to read about her experiences is to appreciate the differences and to learn about joys to be discovered in simpler (not always easier) ways. A charming collection of stories that can be read by young readers independently, Little House is a wonderful type of book for children to share with an older reader, as it offers many opportunities to exchange experiences of what it is like to grow up in different times. Best of all, what really shines through in Little House is the love and respect family members have for each other. Genuinely heartwarming.

I was a lover all of the Little House books when I was very young. I still love to read them. You might say I grew up with them. I never tire of them.
I love to snuggle up in my big chair on a cold winter day and get lost once again in a Little House book...even though I am 60 years old.
