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.
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 wish my library carried these, I will suggest it to them.
A good intro to the Ingalls family, and, if you're trying to stick some education into everything like I am, also a good "social studies" book in that it provides a little snippet in time of life around 1870.
The illustrations are nice, too. I myself hate when a publisher changes illustrators because in my mind the illustrations are as much a part of the book as the words. It is nice that these illustrations are so similar to Garth Williams', so that I wasn't irritated by them and also my LO won't see an abrupt change when we get to reading the original books.
If you are looking for a picture book version of the Little House books to read to your small child, this is a great one.
I started on the originals when I was 6 or 7, my grandma reading them to me. While Amazon suggests this picture book for ages 4-8, I think personally that this is great for age 2-5.
