This book is a classic story about the authors childhood memories of when she used to live in the prairie and all the hardships her and her family had to endure throughout the 1800s. The series are great novels to integrate in social studies when they are learning about the pioneer life to get a sense of how they used to live back then through the point of view of a child. The book is beautifully written and children can really understand the context even though it is based in a historic era. It can also be used in learning about autobiographies. It can be used for children in the upper grade levels. ( )

Brief Summary: Laura Ingalls and her family leave their little house in the Big Woods of Wisconsin and set out for Kansas. After many days of travel in their covered wagon, they find a place to settle and build their little house on the prairie. Life on the prairie includes planting and plowing, hunting wild ducks and turkeys, and gathering grass for their cows. Sometimes pioneer life is hard, but Laura and her folks are always busy and happy in their new little house.

Why I loved it: I am a lifelong fan of this book series and love how it can transport a person to a different way of life.

How to use in a classroom: Gives students a view of a different way of life, including some historical perspective.

Little Houseo on the Prairie is about Laura Ingall and her family who live on the Prairie. This is one of the most popular series and is definitely a classic. I grew up reading all these books and think students would definitely love reading it. The series tells the story about Laura Ingall and how they live on the Prairie. The book has to struggle with living on Indian terriroty. ( )

Epigraph
Dedication
First words
A long time ago, when all the grandfathers and grandmothers of today were little boys and little girls or very small babies, or perhaps not even born, Pa and Ma and Mary and Laura and Baby Carrie left their little house in the Big Woods of Wisconsin.
Quotations
Wild animals would not stay in a country where there were so many people. Pa did not like to stay, either. He liked a country where the wild animals lived without being afraid. He liked to see the little fawns and their mothers looking at him from the shadowy woods, and the fat, lazy bears eating berries in the wild-berry patches.
