For the first time in the history of the Little House books, this new edition features Garth Williams’ interior art in vibrant, full color, as well as a beautifully redesigned cover. 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.

2.5 Little House in the Big Woods
I didn't read Little House in the Big Woods as a child (I read about half of the Little House series), so I don't have any nostalgic memories of this one. The writing is very inconsistent. The best parts are the food descriptions: churning butter, making cheese, even butchering the pig. The worst pa...

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...
