More About Laura Ingalls Wilder & Renee Graef
Laura Ingalls Wilder was born on February 7, 1867, near Pepin, Wisconsin. From 1882–1885 she was a teacher in South Dakota. She married Almanzo Wilder in 1885. 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.
Laura Ingalls Wilder has said that she and her sisters were busy and happy as children but loved Pa's stories the best. In 1932, when Laura was 60 years old, she wrote her first book, Little House In The Big Woods, so those stories would not be lost. She thought about how she had seen the settling of the frontier -- the woods, Indian Territory of the Great Plains, the frontier towns, the coming of the railroad, and homesteading on the prairie. She thought of writing the story of her childhood in eight volumes that would cover each aspect of the American frontier. These became the Little House series. Wilder finished the last book in 1943. On February 10, 1957, she died at age 90, on her farm in Mansfield, Missouri.
For millions of readers Laura lives on forever as the little pioneer girl in the beloved Little House books.
Laura Ingalls Wilder was born in 1867 and died in 1957.

Reviews - What do customers think about A Little Prairie House (Little House)?
A Little Treasure! Feb 20, 2007
A Little Prairie House, an adaptation from the Little House on the Prarie classic series, will delight children and peak their interest in Pioneering life. The illustrations capture the attention and imagination of young children, whetting their appetite for more.
In this retelling of a treasured classic, children catch a glimpse of what it took to be a pioneer family in America. See how the family works together to set up their new home and how community relationships were first formed in the pioneering communities as they meet Mr. Edwards.
Every little girl has to have... Feb 13, 2007
We have a few of the books in this series and I recommend them for all little girls of all ages. I have been reading the regular little house books to both of my girls, which have captured their interest even though there aren't pictures and they are 5 and 2 years old. But then I came across these and this gives them a chance to reread the stories and with beautiful illustrations over and over again. (My 2 year old gets more out of these than the regular series of course) But as my 5 year old is learning to read now, she will soon be able to sit down and read these herself. These books are such a nice change from so many other books out there today for little girls. (I'd rather my girls be into this stuff than skanky Bratz and things like that!) They like to read and look at these over and over again. And again I must say, the illustrations are beautiful and my girls are fascinated by them.
Adaptive book versions for "Little House". Jan 14, 2003
The Series "My First Little House Books" is a great tool for Special Education adaptations of the Core Literature "Little House in the Big Woods". I've used this series in general education classrooms, too, to supplement the Core Lit text. The children's positive responses to the beautiful illustrations made my day! The beautifully portrayed color illustrations capture essential details from the book chapters and make the stories come alive for all of the students. Two thumbs up for this series!
A Little Prairie House (my first little house books) Dec 6, 2000
I bought this book for my 1st grade daughter, hoping she would love the Laura Ingalls Wilder tradition as I had as a child. She did and I was excited because she could read this book herself and she was empowered! I only wish that you could buy the other 13 titles of the "first books" in a collection or gift set like you can the original series.
An Exceptional Series! Jan 3, 2000
I ordered the whole series for my soon to be 4 year old for Christmas. She is absolutely delighted with the stories. The illustrations are beautiful. A must have for younger children.
