Meet the Author

Laura Ingalls Wilder (1867–1957) was born in a log cabin in the Wisconsin woods. With her family, she pioneered throughout America’s heartland during the 1870s and 1880s, finally settling in Dakota Territory. She married Almanzo Wilder in 1885; their only daughter, Rose, was born the following year. The Wilders moved to Rocky Ridge Farm at Mansfield, Missouri, in 1894, where they established a permanent home. After years of farming, Laura wrote the first of her beloved Little House books in 1932. The nine Little House books are international classics. Her writings live on into the twenty-first century as America’s quintessential pioneer story.

Renée Graef received her bachelor's degree in art from the University of Wisconsin at Madison. She is the illustrator of numerous titles in the Little House publishing program, as well as Rodgers and Hammerstein's My Favorite Things and E.T.A Hoffman's The Nutcracker, adapted by Janet Schulman. She lives in Cedarburg, Wisconsin, with her husband and two children.

These picture books are perfect to introduce the younger crowd to the classic Little House books. I loved the originals when I was a girl and now my 3 year-old is enjoying these picture books. The storylines are true to the originals with just enough detail to keep little ones interested. The artwork is in the style of the originals as well, with beautiful color and full, two-page spreads that pull children into the scene. I highly recommend!

These books, and I say these because we have almost all in the series, are great. I have three children (boy and girls) and they love them. They are written simply, in a way that leaves the child to imagine for themselves, the illustrations are beautiful. You want to curl up in front of the fire to read them.

My 5 year old daughter loves her Little House Summertime in the Big Woods easy reader. A wonderful addition to any family library!
