Little House in the Big Woods by Laura Ingalls WilderBased on the real-life adventures of Laura Ingalls Wilder, Little House in the Big Woods is the first book in the award-winning Little House series, which has captivated generations of readers. This edition features the classic black-and-white artwork from Garth Williams.
Little House in the Big Woods takes place in 1871 and introduces us to four-year-old Laura, who lives in a log cabin on the edge of the Big Woods of Wisconsin. She shares the cabin with her Pa, her Ma, her sisters Mary and Carrie, and their lovable dog, Jack.
Pioneer life isn’t easy for the Ingalls family, since they must grow or catch all their own food as they get ready for the cold winter. But they make the best of every tough situation. They celebrate Christmas with homemade toys and treats, do their spring planting, bring in the harvest in the fall, and make their first trip into town. And every night, safe and warm in their little house, the sound of Pa’s fiddle lulls Laura and her sisters into sleep.
The nine books in the timeless Little House series tell the story of Laura’s real childhood as an American pioneer, and are cherished by readers of all generations. They offer a unique glimpse into life on the American frontier, and tell the heartwarming, unforgettable story of a loving family.
Laura Ingalls Wilder
Today I got an email from a friend. She knew about my Laura Ingalls Wilder obsession interest and she was holiday shopping for her niece. She asked me what would be a good age for someone to start reading the Little House books. Frankly, her question stumped me. That Christmas, just before I turned ten, I got the first half of the series.
Laura Ingalls Wilder had a hard life. Her family was always moving, and they lived in fear of attacks. Bobcats were a threat. Mom and Dad had to build at least one house, from the ground up. Mom badly injured her foot when she dropped a log on it.

I have been trying with my boys, who are just under 6 and 4, and they do not seem to be real interested. You know, the picture books intended for preschoolers. Does anyone know which order they go in? Just wondered what others would suggest. I can keep trying with the chapter books, they may get into it. We have been sick lately, and I could be reading at the wrong times. When my dd was 4 and my ds was 6, we listened to the first two books on audiobook at the library.
