Winter on the Farm (My First LH)
With this illustrated adaptation from the beloved Little House series, the youngest readers can share in the joy of Laura Ingalls Wilder’s beloved classics.
This My First Little House book introduces Almanzo Wilder, the young boy from Farmer Boy who would one day marry Laura Ingalls. Winter has come to the Wilder family farm in upstate New York. Almanzo goes through his afternoon barn chores, and then sits down to eat a hearty farm supper with his family.
Jody Wheeler’s illustrations are based on Garth Williams’ classic artwork.
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
