This is a great series. A must-read for children of all ages. A classic series, that is unforgettable! I remember reading this series when I was about 8 or 9 years old.....I didnt put the books down until I was completley finished with the entire series and as soon as I was done reading them, I started all over again. Now that I am an adult, I am finding myself buying the series again and cant wait to open the first book, and continue reading until the 9th book is finished. Once I am done with that, I am going to start reading the series with my 8 year old twin daughters. Cant wait to get started!!!!

Roughing it out on the wide open prairie. The title of the book is Little House on the Prairie, and the author is Laura Ingalls Wilder. There are many major characters in the book, Pa, Ma, Mary, Laura, and baby Carrie. Pa is also known as Charles he, is the father of the family and Ma also known as Caroline, is the mother. The oldest child is Mary, the second oldest is Laura and the youngest is baby Carrie. The family is heading south, during the colonial period. They end up staying on a dry prairie which just happens to have wolves near by. After they find out there are wolves they find out there are Indians near by also. Will the wolves attack or will the Indians invade, who knows? My first impression of this book was, ¿Oh it will be ok,¿ but, now that I have started reading the book, I think it is rather interesting. The book is exciting and wonderful. I liked the book because it is so lively and vibrant, with lots of details. For example, Laura Ingalls Wilder described the prairie to have tall, long, dry, grass. And a wide blue sky with no clouds in site, just a blazing sun over the prairie. I would recommend this book to anyone that likes the colonial period. The author uses great transitioning words, which makes the book flow really well. She has inspired me with her writing. For example she would not say the bird is blue. She would say the little bird is a shaded of blue, and in the far away distance you can hear the sweet song echoing over the hills and valleys. If you are into long detailed books this is not the book for you!

I grew up with the Little House books.  I fell in love with the stories as a little girl.  I have the boxed set but love that they are coming to my Nook.  I still enjoy them, as a grandmother.  I would recommend them to everyone.  My favorite is the Long Winter.  I wish the TV series had stayed true to the books.  Laura would be horrified at some of the things the tv series had her do.

This particular book is about when the Ingalls move from the The Big Woods and into the Prairie. Pa builds a house while everyone else lives outside in tents. The roof at one point catches on fire and everyone has to run to put it out. The prairie also catches on fire too. Ma and Pa manage to keep it away from the house though. This is the life of Laura Ingalls Wilder, filled with hope tragedy, and eventually, happiness. Laura, the writer manages to keep your attention riveted on the story because of her vivid detail and talent at painting you the best picture possible. I felt like I was experiencing it all with her. The only problem I have encountered in this series is the last book, "The First Four Years", which wasn't written by her at all. It lacked all the detail she gave and she even seemed like a completely different person. Everybody should read this because most people only romanticize about the lives of the settler's. They don't know how horrible their lives actually were. Only one out of three families actually survived. The rest died or moved back east. ""They are in the house," Mary whispered. "They are in the house with Ma an Carrie." Then Laura began to shake all over. She new she must do something. She did not know what those Indians were doing to Ma and Baby Carrie. There was no sound at all from the house." This passage is important as it underlines what dangers can be found in the life of a settler. Indians were a constant problem. What I imagine as their values are honest hard work and never give up hope. This family had to overcome fire, financial problems, and Indians...to name but a few of their problems. Many people don't know that this book is not fiction. It is completely true. It even sounds like it is fiction because of Laura's imagination.

We read this book in our class when we were studying Pioneers. We thought it was an interesting book that shows life long back then. It gave a good description of what traveling was like in a covered wagon. It had a lot of good details about the adventures like when the Indians came to their house. It even helped us understand why it was dangerous out there. We would recommend this book to all ages. If you can read chapter books this will be a good book for you.

What a classic. Everyone should have to read this story. I love historical fiction and enjoyed reading this story when I was a girl and I also enjoyed reading this story to my kids and to my class room too. It is the story of Laura and her famous adventures. I enjoyed reading and teaching about the one roomed school house and the struggles with staying warm at night without electricity. This was a teaching tool as well as entertaining. You will really enjoy these stories if you have never read them.

My mother read these books to me when I was the age of my daughter in the 1970's, and I wanted to read them to my kids when they were old enough. My daughter (6 years old), husband, and I started with Little House in the Big Woods, which she said was "good" and she enjoys this one even more. It has led to more family time and some really interesting discussions comparing today and 100 years in the past! Still a timely classic! Enjoy!

I think this book was an absorbing and creative book about a family who travels from Wisconsin to Kansas. This book literally turns it's own pages. I recommend this to kids ages 9-13.

Great book. My 8year old loves it...and I find it interesting from a historical standpoint. Tried to buy it online with the SPECIAL no postage offer...couldn't make it happen...Now I'm not an IT guy, but I was frustrated.

The story and reader are very good. My kids do have some of the books. This 'book on tape' series is great for one of my kids who cannot read in the car due to car sickness.
