Laura Ingalls Wilder was born in 1867 in the log cabin described in Little House in the Big Woods. She and her family traveled by covered wagon across the Midwest. Later, 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. For millions of readers Laura lives on forever as the little pioneer girl in the beloved Little House books.
If I could pick one book that every 7,8, or 9 year old MUST read, it would be this one.
I read this after I read most of the other books within this series, and this one stands out as one of my favorites.
I have read all of the series and highly recommend children being read these books, or reading them themselves.
Although I have enjoyed re-reading Laura Wilder's books about HER growing up, reading this one about Almonzo was a nice change. Read morePublished 2 days ago by Rosa Cline
