Christmas in the Big Woods (My First LH)
A beautiful full-color hardcover picture book introduction to the beloved Little House series, perfect for younger readers.
Christmas has come to the Big Woods of Wisconsin! Laura and her family are excited to celebrate. When Laura’s cousins, aunt, and uncle arrive, they spend their time together eating sweets, playing in the snow, and reading. Their holiday celebrations are full of simple joys.
The warm paintings by Renée Graef are inspired by Garth Williams’ classic illustrations and lovingly bring the Ingalls family to life.
Little House on the Praire books are designed especially for early readers, these adaptations of the original Little House series feature simpler storylines and events from the books, formatted like a picture book. Each page contains a few lines of text for beginning readers, and the rest of the page is softly and beautifully illustrated based on the style of Garth Williams. All in all, they have done an excellent job in keeping the text of the story in keeping with the original books, so much I almost recognize some of the lines from the original Little House on the Praire series. For young children that "want to read it themselves" and enjoy looking at the pictures, this is a great easy reader alternative or introduction to Little House. - Jess
