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.

More About the Author

Laura Ingalls Wilder was born in the Wisconsin woods in 1867. She wrote the Little House books based on her own experiences growing up on the Western frontier. Just like the characters in her stories, Laura and her family traveled by covered wagon across the Midwest and experienced many of the same adventures. She finally settled down in Mansfield, Missouri with her husband, Almanzo, where she lived until her death in 1957.

My 11 month old daughter loves these books and we've been ordering them steadily since she was 6 months old, with never a disappointment till this one. The usual illustrator, Renee Graef did the cover art for this book, but for reasons unknown the pictures in the book were done by Doris Ettlinger and it would appear she had maybe a day to bang them out. Whereas the other books' pictures are well-thought-out scenes with interesting perspectives and beautiful colors, the pictures in this book are incredibly boring. Things -faces, Ma's skirt, the outside of the cabin- take up large portions of the page for no apparent artistic reason; if anything, it reminds me of someone trying to finish a long term paper in a hurry by using an extra large font. Compared to the other books, it's just dull.

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...

I grew up reading the Little House Series...now there's a series that lends itself nicely toward little kids. The language is nice and simple to the point where my 3yr. old was excited to listen to it (she could understand the whole book) and yet it's not too simple to be boring to younger elementary kids. My 7yr. old likes to read them by himself! I now own the original set for myself, the "My First Little House" set for my kids and I've even purchased books from this series for kids of my closest friends.

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.

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.

This book is a great way to introduce young readers to a classics author and reel them in. The pictures are beautiful and the books are very readable for first and second graders. They love to read about the "olden" days!

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!
