This hardcover, full-color treasury includes six picture book stories adapted from the classic Little House books.
The Little House series introduced generations of readers to Laura Ingalls Wilder's life on the frontier. Now with this illustrated storybook collection, the youngest readers can share in her world as well.
Laura Ingalls lives in a snug little log cabin with her ma, her pa, her sisters, Mary and Carrie, and their dog, Jack. Almanzo Wilder lives on a farm with his family and lots of animals. These pioneer children have all sorts of adventures, including trips to town, county fairs, cozy winter days, and holidays with family.
The six stories included in this treasury were originally published as stand-alone picture books: A Little Prairie House, Going to Town, County Fair, Sugar Snow, Winter Days in the Big Woods, and Christmas in the Big Woods.
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
