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 The Deer in the Wood (Little House)?
Great Pictures and Tale Oct 19, 2007
These are great little books (there are several in the series). These are adaptations of the Little House books, formatted as picture books with full color illutrations that are inspired by Garth Williams original Little House artwork. The Deer in the Wood is an abbreviated excerpt from the Ingalls Wilder novel Little House in the Big Wood. The quiet pictures and straitforward text present the incident of Pa Ingalls going on an overnight hunt, only to come back "empty handed" because he could not kill the wondrous and gentle deer that he encountered. The story was great in the original book, and the essential elements are presented here with perfectly matched illustrations. One of those books that you hope your kids will choose for you to read at bedtime.
This series is flat, lifeless, precious Mar 3, 2001
Each book is not a story so much as a scene from a department store window. The stories have no plot to speak of. The characters have no personality at all. Production values are high, and my daughter was interested in a glimpse of life in another place and time. But these books are so much less than they could have been. Bide your time and get the originals instead.
I wish there were more like this!! Feb 6, 2001
My 3 year old daughter loves her "Laura Books" and can't wait till night so she can hear another. I fell in love with the novels when I was a little girl and am so happy that I can share the stories with my little girl. The stories are easy to read. I have almost every one and plan on getting all of them.
Wonderful way to start reading Little House Books May 25, 2000
I've been a fan of Little House books since I was in second grade. With this series made for young readers, I can start reading my favorite books to my niece before she is even in school. This book in particular was a very endearing story about a mama deer and her baby. Madelyn loved it! I thought the illustrations would make Garth Williams proud.
