Children's Literature - Cathy Greenwood
Gentle, soft colors and rounded forms lushly illustrate this very short version of the famous Laura and her Ma, Pa, sisters, dog, and horses as they take their covered-wagon journey to their prairie homestead. Pictures and story unite to show how family love and friendship are just as important as hard work while the family struggles to build a life on the beautiful, enormous prairie.

Laura Ingalls Wilder was born in 1867 in the log cabin described in Little House in the Big Woods. She and her family traveled by covered wagon across the Midwest. Later, Laura and her husband, Almanzo Wilder, made their own covered-wagon trip with their daughter, Rose, to Mansfield, Missouri. There, believing in the importance of knowing where you began in order to appreciate how far you've come, Laura wrote about her childhood growing up on the American frontier. For millions of readers Laura lives on forever as the little pioneer girl in the beloved Little House books.
