Laura & Nellie (Little House Chapter Book #4)
112 pages, paperback.
Laura Ingalls and Nellie Oleson are classmates, but they don't get along. Join the original pioneer girl in this Little House chapter book, adapted from Laura Ingalls Wilder's beloved classics. Illustrated with beautiful new black-and-white artwork, this repackaged edition includes bonus material such as games, activities, and more!
Laura loves living on a farm, playing in Plum Creek, and wearing her homemade dresses. She's a country girl, through and through. But Nellie is a town girl. Her dad is a shopkeeper and she wears store-bought dresses. Laura is proud to be a country girl, but Nellie teases her for it. Can they put aside their differences and become friends?
If you have young, independent readers not quite ready for the original Little House books, they might enjoy getting acquainted with Laura through these short chapter books. Each book is approximately 70 pages in length and features abridged stories from those in the original Little House books.
Newly revised editions include revised black-and-white illustrations that seem to give a contemporary rendering to the original Little House book illustrations by Garth Williams. In addition, a variety of games and activities are included in the back of the book. Surprisingly, even in chapter-book form, the tone and "feel" of the chapter books is remarkably like the original series, and many of the most memorable events are captured for early readers to enjoy. Please note, these are currently in transition from Laura chapter books to the Little House chapter books. See graphic or contact us to verify edition. pb. ~ Jess/Deanne
