More About Laura Ingalls Wilder & Renee Graef


Laura Ingalls Wilder 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 Pioneer Sisters (Little House Chapter Book)?

Age Appropriate chapters about Laura & her sisters  Oct 22, 2007
"Pioneer Sisters" begins with the family living in the woods of Wisconsin and we recognized some familiar sentences word-for-word from "Winter Days in the Big Woods" of the "My First Little House" series. Then in one brief chapter they head West in their covered wagon to Kansas. Here, Laura and Mary gather up Indian beads they find. In another chapter they move on to Minnesota. They play in a straw stack and get in trouble. The final chapter is a Christmas celebration. The only criticism I have for this particular book is where Laura hits her sister and later on after being corrected for this she talks about still wanting to slap Mary. Siblings will frustrate each other and that's a fact of life that children can relate to, but not all kids hit when they get mad and I guess I'd prefer that a potential role model didn't either. But they do learn about sacrifice and generosity in the very next chapter. If your child likes the "My First Little House" series and you feel that the original "Little House" versions are just a bit over his/her head right now, "Pioneer Sisters" is a great book to bridge that gap. I have to disagree with other reviewers who feel that the Little House stories are being too chopped up and dumbed-down for little readers. In my opinion, each series is valuable and age appropriate. The "My First Little House" picture books are great for introducing the stories with lots of pictures that help them envision Laura's world. Once your child can read a bit more, the original series of books are just too daunting because of how many pages they contain. "Pioneer Sisters" and the other chapter books in this in-between "Little House" series are perfect for this stage. You can't really expect them to absorb all the details and lessons that Laura Ingalls Wilder has to offer. That comes later as you read and reread the original versions.
 
Is Little House losing Laura?  Sep 27, 2002
I enjoyed reading this book. I think it is a sweet book for beginning readers, but definately lacking of the special essence that makes the little house books what they are. The author has taken some of the most memorable stories from Laura's books and gently adapted them for young readers today. The relationship between Laura and her two sisters is highlighted, which I believe is a wonderful thing for children today to be exposed to.The stories are still there, I won't deny that. However, I feel that as 'new versions' of the beloved little house books, the stories are being dumbed-down quite successfully! Who says Laura didn't write her books for beginning readers? By the time a child can read they can appreciate Laura's stories. I don't believe it is neccessary to adapt them at all. These new editions are bereft of many interesting coloquialisms of the day, and also Laura's own subtle magic woven into her words, which I am sure makes the plot more accessible, but takes away much of what makes the stories Laura's. I have loved to read of the Ingalls family since the age of six, and I still do, but I know that the reason I read them is not only for their adventures, but because of the Laura in every sentence. Please don't let's take Laura from Little House!

This story is about Laura and Mary growing up together.  Feb 10, 1999
This is a great story about two girls named Mary and Laura they have a 1 year old sister named Carrie. They go to town and get all kinds of stuff they make Carrie a necklace made out of buttons. If I were you I would buy this book now!
 
Nice version of Little House books for younger readers.  Feb 8, 1998
This is a good introduction to the Little House books appropriate for begining chapter book readers. This particular series is for children who are too old for the My First Little House Books, but not quite ready for the orriginals. But in my opionion, there are too many Little House adaptations (My First Little House Books, Little House Board Books, etc.) that are taking the orriginals and chopping them up into little pieces. And this book is rather brief, skipping from one event to another, and using stories from too many different books. But its still a nice story for younger readers.
