I just wanted to make note that on page 10 the writer/author/publisher refers to Laura being older then Mary. It should be Carrie is younger then Laura, not Mary.

I read the Laura Ingalls Wilder series a few years ago. This is a good way to take all those books and wrap them into a nice, short summary of her whole life. I would reccomend this to anybody who wants to read about this amazing person. Especially if you only have an hour or two! Or maybe even half an hour! Even if you have a lifetime of freetime, this costs less than the whole entire series. The author is surely a great one, and I recommend her series of books, which all tell about historic characters and figures. I love the drawings on the front. They are so comical! If you read one, you will want to read them all! This is a great series I think everyone should love!

The review that cites incorrect info on page 10 is itself INCORRECT. Pg. 10 says "It must have been a long bumpy trip for little Laura and her four-year-old sister, Mary." Ages and dates are all factual in the book. trip
