" I liked learning about Laura's life. It was really fascinating! I think she was a wonderful woman! " said.

" I thought this was a well-done kid biography on LIW. My daughter thought it was "stressful" but "real-life." Well yes, they did mention lots of the stress and sadness of her life so you'll have to be prepared for that. The illustrations were a nice style and added a lot. " said.

" Hmmm - what is the point of this book? You have read the Little House books and you want to know about the author. So, 90% of the book just tells those same stories again (badly). Turns out you already know all that. Then there are a few pages that tell how things ended up for Laura. The illustrations are definitely not in the same league as Garth Williams. " said.

"This is a picture book biography, illustrated in a folk-art style of painting that begins to capture the spirit and warmth of the Little House books. It is really the paintings that make this book interesting; most author biographies are read when the author's works are already familiar, and this book seems to be intended as a picture-book summary of the series. It is a challenge to cover so many events in a few pages; the Ox-Cart Man is a book from a similar era that covers less time and is more effective. Still, this could make a nice introduction, read once or twice just before beginning the series." said.

"1st grade—read aloud, 2nd & 3rd independent reading
Wallner’s simple, yet detailed illustrations evoke emotion and feelings of pioneer days past. They fill each page in a variety of hues, including browns, blues and greens. Each aids the reader in becoming connected with the informative, but entertaining text on Wilder’s life. The vocabulary is targeted for fluent readers, but is limited to a few sentences on each page, encouraging first graders to try reading it on their own. Students will connect with Wilder and be enticed to read more about this famous author’s fascinating life.
Related content: Language Arts, Social Studies, Science
Lesson Idea: Students will write a poem about Laura Ingalls Wilder’s life.
" said.

" This little picture book nicely summarized the joys and hardships of Laura Ingalls Wilder's amazing life as a pioneer girl. A subject that has been dear to my heart since I discovered Little House in my 10th year, I loved every minute of this little biography. " said.

" Teaches a lot about the Person on the cover. " said.

" I liked learning about Laura's life. It was really fascinating! I think she was a wonderful woman! " said.
