Little house books are great reads. The author Laura Ingalls Wilder describes a time during her childhood. This picture book describes the day in the like of a family years ago. It takes you through the jobs of each person in a family and how people of the past lived through the winter. Each person in Laura's family had a specific role which are very different than the roles family members have today. The central message is the importance of family which is portrayed through pictures and the detailed text on each page. The detailed writing allows you to feel like you are in the cabin on the cold winter day. This book allows children to learn how families lived in the past versus how families live today. The importance of family is a very important concept for children to learn. ( )

First words
Once upon a time, a little girl named Laura lived in the Big Woods of Wisconsin in a little house made of logs.
Ma would say:
“Wash on Monday,
Iron on Tuesday,
Mend on Wednesday,
Churn on Thursday,
Clean on Friday,
Bake on Saturday,
Rest on Sunday.”
He would throw off his fur cap and coat and mittens and call, “Where’s my little half-pint of sweet cider half drunk up?”
