About the Author

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.



Doris Ettlinger, a graduate of Rhode Island School of Design, has illustrated many books for children. She lives in Warren County, New Jersey.

Laura Ingalls Wilder was born in 1867 in the log cabin described in Little House in the Big Woods. As her classic Little House books tell us, she and her family traveled by covered wagon across the Midwest. She and her husband, Almanzo Wilder, made their own covered-wagon trip with their daughter, Rose, to Mansfield, Missouri. There Laura wrote her story in the Little House books, and lived until she was ninety years old. For millions of readers, however, she lives forever as the little pioneer girl in the beloved Little House books.

I gave this book to my 3 yr old for her birthday and she really liked it. She has virtually all the First books. She loves the drawings and I like the no playing on Sunday part, my daughter and I have a discussion everytime we read. I highly recommend this and other First Little House Books for little ones.

The "My First Little House" books are fabulous! I started buying them for my daughter when she was 3, and she's almost 4 1/2 and still loves reading them. We have quite a few of these books now and I would eventually like to purchase the entire series. It was also a coincidence that we started reading them when we were on vacation in Wisconsin, so my daughter thought it was neat that Laura and Mary lived there and she was there too!

One funny thing (depending on your sense of humor) - I was explaining to my daughter that Laura and Mary lived a long time ago, so of course her next question was, "Are they dead now?" and this was a frequent topic of conversation for a while when we were reading the books! Not in a bad or morbid way, she was just curious. And we gave one of these books to my daughter's school class a a gift, and apparently one of the children in her class also commented on this! Just thought I'd mention it...

Though there is nothing like the "big" Little House books, these soft books with beautiful pictures are a wonderful introduction to the series for toddlers. I bought this for an almost 3 year old and her mother said she was mesmerized and asked her to "read it again" as she got to the last page, something she hadn't done before, had preferred to get another book. My 4.5 year old grandson was enchanted with the 'farmer boy' book (can't remember the title) and the barn animals.

Do not hesitate, buy as many of these books as you can!

I bought this book for my grandaughter's 5th birthday as this book is about Laura's 5th birthday. The illustrations are really wonderful. We went to Walnut Grove, MN last summer and I had bought one of the other books from this series. Easy reading and not long (fewer words) for younger children.

The values it teachs and the family life displayed is so warm. The art work seems a little too old fashioned and simple. I would probably like the art to be a bit more modern and pretty looking.

My 8-year-old daughter loves the LH books. I started her on these picture books when she was a toddler. She especially loves this book. She loves the "Pop goes the Weasel" song in it, and she loves that it's about a birthday. If you have a little one that's interested in LH, (or that you want to be interested in it) this is an excellent addition to your library.

Sweet and interesting story that will be great for learning to read for those in early elementary school. Good adaptation of the classics. Artwork compliments the book.
