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.



Renée Graef received her bachelor's degree in art from the University of Wisconsin at Madison. She is the illustrator of numerous titles in the Little House publishing program, as well as Rodgers and Hammerstein's My Favorite Things and E.T.A Hoffman's The Nutcracker, adapted by Janet Schulman. She lives in Cedarburg, Wisconsin, with her husband and two children.

I bought this book for my 1st grade daughter, hoping she would love the Laura Ingalls Wilder tradition as I had as a child. She did and I was excited because she could read this book herself and she was empowered! I only wish that you could buy the other 13 titles of the "first books" in a collection or gift set like you can the original series.

I ordered the whole series for my soon to be 4 year old for Christmas. She is absolutely delighted with the stories. The illustrations are beautiful. A must have for younger children.

The Series "My First Little House Books" is a great tool for Special Education adaptations of the Core Literature "Little House in the Big Woods". I've used this series in general education classrooms, too, to supplement the Core Lit text. The children's positive responses to the beautiful illustrations made my day! The beautifully portrayed color illustrations capture essential details from the book chapters and make the stories come alive for all of the students. Two thumbs up for this series!

Format: Paperback
We have a few of the books in this series and I recommend them for all little girls of all ages. I have been reading the regular little house books to both of my girls, which have captured their interest even though there aren't pictures and they are 5 and 2 years old. But then I came across these and this gives them a chance to reread the stories and with beautiful illustrations over and over again. (My 2 year old gets more out of these than the regular series of course) But as my 5 year old is learning to read now, she will soon be able to sit down and read these herself. These books are such a nice change from so many other books out there today for little girls. (I'd rather my girls be into this stuff than skanky Bratz and things like that!) They like to read and look at these over and over again. And again I must say, the illustrations are beautiful and my girls are fascinated by them.

A Little Prairie House, an adaptation from the Little House on the Prarie classic series, will delight children and peak their interest in Pioneering life. The illustrations capture the attention and imagination of young children, whetting their appetite for more.

In this retelling of a treasured classic, children catch a glimpse of what it took to be a pioneer family in America. See how the family works together to set up their new home and how community relationships were first formed in the pioneering communities as they meet Mr. Edwards.

Format: Paperback
These books are great to introduce little ones to the Little House books My duaghter loved these stories and has since moved on to the chapter books to hear more details about Laura Ingalls Wilder's life on the prairie. They are a shorter version but true to the story and the illustrations are a bonus. They also counted as accelerated readers at my duaghters school. So it's a win win in my book.

I purchased this book for my granddaughters, who are 5 and 3. They enjoyed the book and they both said they wished they could live in a little log house!!!! They definitely are intrigued and I look forward to buying more of this series to enjoy with them. Perhaps when they are older they will want to read the Little House on the Prairie series.

My kids (I've got all boys) like Little House a lot.

We re-read the Little House series (the big books) often, and as we go along, I rely on these short picture books to give even more information than what the original Garth Williams illustrations could show.

I love this book in particular -- this one shows them picking the site for their cabin as described in Little House on the Prarie, then it shows Pa, Ma, and Mr. Edwards constructing the house. My favorite illustration is the one of Laura inside the house with the sunshine stripes all around.

We also rely on "Pioneer Girl: the Story of Laura Ingalls Wilder" by William T. Anderson and "A Pioneer Sampler" by Barbara Greenwood -- the pictures do the storytelling.
