Format: Hardcover
The World of Little House is an excellent book about the history of the "Pioneer Girl", Laura Ingalls Wilder. Deborah Maze and Garth Williams did a wonderful job of illustrating the book with beautiful pictures. This book includes "How to Make Projects" such as Laura and Mary's Nine-Patch Quilt Squares along with "How to Make Recipes" such as Molasses-on-Snow Candy. Besides telling about Laura's life, the book includes interesting topics of what it was like to live in the 1860's through the 1940's. Such topics include information on general stores, prairie schools, covered wagons, medicine and housekeeping on the prairie. If you like Laura Ingalls Wilder, you must buy this book. It will be money well spent!

This charming book is a must for Little House addicts. The partial family tree is interesting (though did Grandpa Ingalls really give two of his children the same first name? That struck me as odd). The book contains lots of recipes and activities, and a nice summary of the Ingall's family travels.
A few minor caveats, however:
Except for a brief introduction and the timeline at the end, the book follows the LH books, NOT Laura's actual life. So it isn't all factually accurate.
WHile a few of the "Little Houses" still exist, most are long gone. So the author's floor plans are imaginary, and they don't always follow the descriptions in the books. (For example, when Pa added the bedrooms onto the claim shanty at the beginning of "Little Town on the Prairie", Laura describes it as "building the other half of the house," meaning, to my mind, that the rooms should have been side by side; the same size as the original shanty room. THe author here shows them as being one behind the other, and taking up only half the legnth of the shanty.)
The recipes, while interesting, seem less historically accurate than the ones in the "Little House Cookbook." (Almanzo's "Long Winter" pancakes probably wouldn't have had eggs in them.)
And there are a few other minor factual errors, both in relation to Laura's real life and to her life as portrayed in the books.
Still a very worthwhile purchase for anyone interested in the book series.

Of all the books written about Laura, this is definately my favorite! It is very fascinating. If you read it, you'll probably learn alot of stuff about Laura you never knew before. There are nine chapters that tell about each of the nine books Laura wrote. I think the greatest part of this book is the floor-plans in it. The book also includes crafts and recipes. And, at the end of each chapter it tells in more detail about highlights of the book (at the end of Little House in the Big Woods chapter it tells about general stores.) Some other good things are the Ingalls, Quiner, and Wilder family trees

Format: Hardcover
This is one of the most most lovel books my mother and I have shared together. It brought back such great memories of my childhood reading the little house books. The illustrations complement the simple activities and delicious recipes beautifully. It brings a spoonful of peace and tranquility to the hectic world many live in today

Format: Hardcover
This is a nice companion book to the Little House series. The book is filled with diagrams of what the houses that Laura and her family lived in may have looked like, simple activities suitable for children, recipes for foods that are described in the Little House books, and other background information about the books and Laura's life. Each chapter revolves around one of the nine books in the Little House series and the book contains an introduction about Laura Ingalls Wilder. The back of the book contains a time line of different world events that were going on during Laura's lifetime. This is a nice book to read after you have read the Little House series.

This book is a great buy for a fan of Little House On The Prairie books or the television show. It really gives you an idea how Laura and her family lived. There are great pictures of the really Laura and her family. The layouts of her homes is very interesting. And it has great things to try that were done in Laura's time. (I have not tried any of them, but kids would love them.) It really makes The life of The Ingalls clan clearer. Most of all you really learn about her world and how it changed in her time. Trust me... it is a must.
