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.

I am a retired first grade teacher who is helping a friend homeschool her kindergartener. I used this book and Sugar Snow as part of the winter unit. We were able to compare the past family and activities to the ones in her own home. We did various activities from the books like making paper dolls, bought some maple syrup sugar chunks to taste and even poured pure maple syrup over snow (shaved ice)[not in the books but tied in nicely]. The reading is simple and she was able to find words she could read. I found the books to be very enjoyable as did they.

Winter Days in the Big Woods is as timeless story about a young girl and her family living on a prairie in the 1800’s. It describes the challenges they face along with the things they do for fun together. Reading this story gives children a great introduction to how life has changed overtime and they can see the many differences between their lives and Laura’s. Another important theme in it is the importance of family as it describes how they spend time together and depicts how close they are through the great illustrations and descriptions found on each page. This story goes beyond simply telling about how people use to live in the olden days but can help open the readers world to this unique time period and give them a better understanding of history through their imagination.

I THINK IT IS WONDERFUL THAT THESE STORIES ARE MADE FOR YOUNGER CHILDREN AS I AM A HUGE LITTLE HOUSE FAN BUT I WAS VERY DISSAPOINTED THAT BECAUSE PEOPLE NEED TO BE POLITICLY CORRECT LAURA IS PUT INTO A TIME OUT. NO ONE SHOULD HAVE THE RIGHT TO CHANGE A CLASSIC WORK BECAUSE THEY FEEL THAT NO CHILD SHOULD BE SPANKED. THERE WAS NO SUCH THING AS A TIME OUT IN PIONEER TIMES AND IN THE BOOK IT IS CLEAR THAT SHE IS SPANKED. OTHER THAN THAT I WAS HAPPY WITH THE BOOK SERIES.
