Come along for the adventure with this collector's set of the first five Little House books.
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.

These books were such a wonderful part of my early childhood that they were something I wanted to share with my children and grand-children. They are a timeless vision of childhood innocence. An innocence that is so easily cast aside in our too adult world.
This series is perfect for young elementary school students. My little girl in grade 2 really hated learning to read, and I wanted her to find enjoyment in it. I knew this series would do the trick. She was so excite about all that she learned, she started calling her father and I "Pa and Ma" and best of all, she couldn't put the books down. It was great summer reading. There is so much to be learned from our pioneer history. These books share insight on simple living, humour, survival, loss, transitions, family interaction and most importantly love. Enjoy these timeless tales.
It is WELL constructed. Feels and appears very well made. The pages are thick and glossy and contain a smattering of in-color sketches in the style of the cover illustration. The words are large enough and well spaced enough that my seven year old, who is using "Little House in the Big Woods" as her first chapter book, has no problems getting through it.
Buy with confidence. I was very pleased!
