5.0 out of 5 stars A Classic, yet still exceedingly timely, collection, October 31, 2005
This review is from: The Little House Collection (Paperback)
I do not remember the first time I read all the Laura books. They have, however, been on my list of comfort reading ever since. Was it because it was so easy to identify with her sibling rivalry in the first couple books, or because of the vivid descriptions that brought life in America over 100 years ago into my imagination, or because the chapters, so good for bedtime reading, encapsulated each vignette into a cohesive whole? It's hard to say exactly what it was about these stories, but Mrs. Wilder's voice creates a window into our country's past that no child should miss out upon. Where else would they find such a narrator of pioneer western America? Let alone one that is so easy to identify with. This collection is beautifully colored (the illustrations have always been wonderfully evocative) and the pages are a tad thicker than normal and shiny and feel good in the hand.
