This book tells the life of a pioneer girl called Laura Ingalls Wilder. I would like to use this book in my teaching, because students can learn spirit of this brave girl. Additionally, the illustrations are very good. This book is good for 1-2 graders to read. ( )

This story chronicles Laura Ingalls Wilder. She was a pioneer and her family had many adventures moving west. The story tells how she met Almanzo Wilder, they were married, they settled in Missouri, and had a daughter. This would be a great book to supplement the 4th grade pioneer social studies unit. Students could relate to her story because it is written from a child's perspective of what it was like to live through that time.

This is an biographical story about Laura Ingalls Wilder's life. The book is well illustrated showing a lot of graphic detail about the prairie life. The book takes her from about age 3 to the time of her death. She was a hard worker and a traveler. She was also a teacher of language arts at age 15 years old. In later life she married and had a daughter of her own. Her daughter was a world traveler. Then when she was much older she became a writer of describing her younger years on the pioneer. Her books became famous and known as the "Little House". Laura was very family oriented. ( )
