“Each holiday recollection is like a gift, wrapped in joy and tenderness.” (Discovery Girls Magazine)

About the Author

Laura Ingalls Wilder (1867–1957) was born in a log cabin in the Wisconsin woods. With her family, she pioneered throughout America’s heartland during the 1870s and 1880s, finally settling in Dakota Territory. She married Almanzo Wilder in 1885; their only daughter, Rose, was born the following year. The Wilders moved to Rocky Ridge Farm at Mansfield, Missouri, in 1894, where they established a permanent home. After years of farming, Laura wrote the first of her beloved Little House books in 1932. The nine Little House books are international classics. Her writings live on into the twenty-first century as America’s quintessential pioneer story.



Garth Williams's classic illustrations for the Little House books caused Laura to remark that she "and her folks live again in these pictures." Garth Williams also illustrated Charlotte's Web, Stuart Little, and almost one hundred other books.

Format: Hardcover
Past LITTLE HOUSE ON THE PRAIRIE BOOKS have contained one large story. While those have always been enjoyable, there's a chance that the newest release from Laura Ingalls Wilder, A LITTLE HOUSE CHRISTMAS TREASURY, is the most enjoyable LITTLE HOUSE release in years. A LITTLE HOUSE CHRISTMAS TREASURY is made up of six short stories, and one Christmas carol. Each short story features Laura as a young child, except for two - which both star Almanzo.

CHRISTMAS IN THE BIG WOODS - This story takes place in the Big Woods of Wisconsin. In this story, Laura is a mere four-years-old, and is eagerly awaiting the arrival of her relatives and Santa Claus. 5/5 stars.

CHRISTMAS ON THE PRAIRIE - This story takes place in Indian Territory, when Laura is six-years-old. This Christmas, rain has fallen non-stop, but there has been no sign of snow, and everyone knows that Santa and his reindeer can only find children if there is snow to guide their sleigh, so Mary and Laura think that Santa won't be visiting them this year. That is, until a surprise greets them on Christmas morning. 5/5 stars.

CHRISTMAS ON PLUM CREEK - This story takes place in Plum Creek, Minnesota. Laura is now eight-years-old, and she and Mary are worried that Santa won't be visiting them, because their new home has no fireplace. After all, how can Santa leave you presents, if there is no fireplace for him to enter your home by? Luckily, Ma assures the girls that Santa will find them, and helps them realize the true spirit of Christmas. 5/5 stars.

CHRISTMAS FOR FARMER BOY - This story takes place in Malone, New York, but doesn't star Laura and her family. This story is all about Almanzo Wilder, and his time dining with his family over a Christmas feast, and making merry with his aunts, uncles, and cousins.

I bought this book to read to my children around the Christmas Tree- we would pick one story per night (often they wanted to repeat) - it's really great having all the Christmas Little House stories in one place. Would buy again!

This little book is only a bit wider and longer than a paperback and is thinner than a paperback. It has a lightly padded cover.

The stories in it are some of the Christmas chapters from the Laura Ingalls Wilder books, with the illustrations by Garth Williams. The illustrations have been brightly colorized, which may appeal to children but seem a little jarring to me. The paper quality is high, each page is decorated at top and bottom with a Christmas-y green leaf pattern, and some pages have snowflake decorations.

Not all the Christmas chapters are included. The stories included are
"Christmas" from Little House in the Big Woods
"Mr. Edwards Meets Santa Claus" from Little House on the Prairie (my favorite and the one I wanted to be sure was in the book)
"The Christmas Horses" and "A Merry Christmas" (two chapters that make one story) from On the Banks of Plum Creek
"Surprise" (about the Christmas tree at the church) from On the Banks of Plum Creek
"Christmas" from Farmer Boy
"The Christmas Barrel" and "Christmas in May" from The Long Winter
"The Night Before Christmas" from These Happy Golden Years

Although I wrongly imagined that this book would be a large gift-type storybook, it is still a nice little gift. I should have read the dimensions posted clearly in Product Details.

The stories of course are wonderful, and so are the illustrations. I rate this book five stars for content and take off one star for the size, the colorizations, the padded cover, and the missing chapters.

This was a wonderful read aloud with my kids before Christmas. They were excited when they got peppermint sticks in their stockings and raced to see who could get it to a point first.
