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.

It is interesting to read this book given its classic status. These are the earliest childhood memories of Laura Ingalls Wilder. She is about four to five during the course of the book. It's really only interesting as a work specifically for children. It can introduce children to the realities o...
Hi! I'm now finally going to review the Little House series by Laura Ingalls Wilder, starting with the first one: Little House In the Big Woods. The book is about a little girl named Laura Ingalls who lives in the big wood of Wisconsin with her Pa and Ma (Charles and Caroline Ingalls), her older...
I expect that one of my teachers in elementary school read this to us, probably Miss Hill in 3rd grade. If not, she still gets all the credit, because she was awesome. Then I read it myself along with most (all?) of the other books in the series in 5th or 6th grade. So this was a re-read, albeit aft...
