Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Jackie Hechtkopf
Third in a series, this book contains eighteen craft projects based on information in the classic pioneer stories by Laura Ingalls Wilder. Each craft is introduced by a quote from one of the nine "Little House" books as well as a short explanation of the item and the role it played in pioneer life. The directions and the illustrations are attractively presented within intriguing, theme-related borders. Six of the eighteen crafts require needlework and/or embroidery skills. One involves gardening and another includes making bread from scratch. Only a few are simple enough for first graders. Most of the activities are for elementary or middle school students and most require adult help. Teachers and Girl Scout leaders will find this book a good source of ideas. The projects are presented in such an inviting fashion that readers could be inspired to learn sewing or embroidery. The numerous references to all of the "Little House" books should also pique the interest of those who have not read the entire series. All in all, this is a useful and attractive book.

Meet the Author

Carolyn Strom Collins and Christina Wyss Eriksson grew up reading the Little House books. Hoping to answer some of their questions about Laura and Little House, they visited every Little House site and museum and did in-depth research on Laura and her family. The result is The World of Little House. Both authors live with their families in the St. Paul-Minneapolis area of Minnesota, about a four-hour drive from where Laura lived in On the Banks of Plum Creek. In addition to writing The World of Little House, they are also the authors of My Little House Crafts Book, The Anne of Green Gables Treasury, and The Little Women Treasury.

Mary Collier has illustrated The Narnia Paper Dolls: The Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe collection and The Secret Garden picture book. Ms. Collier lives in Dana Point, CA.
