Publisher's Summary

The book that started it all! Little House in the Big Woods is the first book in Laura Ingalls Wilder's treasured Little House series, which is based on her life growing up as an American pioneer.

Told from four-year-old Laura's point of view, this story begins in 1871 in a little log cabin on the edge of the Big Woods of Wisconsin. Laura lives in the little house with her pa, her ma, her sisters Mary and Carrie, and their trusty dog, Jack. Pioneer life is sometimes hard for the family, since they must grow or catch all their own food as they get ready for the cold winter. But it is also exciting as Laura and her family celebrate Christmas with homemade toys and treats, do the spring planting, bring in the harvest, and make their first trip into town. And every night they are safe and warm in their little house, with the happy sound of Pa's fiddle sending Laura and her sisters off to sleep.

And so begins Laura Ingalls Wilder's beloved story of a pioneer girl and her family. The nine Little House books have been cherished by generations of readers and listeners as both a unique glimpse into America's frontier history and a heartwarming, unforgettable story.

Correlates to the Common Core State Standards in English Language Arts.

    Story
    "GRANDMA WAS JIGGING"

    HORSE POWER, HONEY, MAPLE SYRUP, CURDS, CHEESE, ETC.
    This is a wonderful book. I am middle aged and I loved it. I think kids of any age will love parts of it. Like a Jean Auel book, a lot of time is spent in explaining how to make cheese, gather honey, cook maple syrup and so on. These explaining parts might get a little dry for the average kid. The book is also full of stories as told by Laura's dad. These stories are extremely entertaining for kids and adults. As a whole I believe kids of all ages will like it.

    I read the hard back copy years ago. I remember liking the book, but not loving it. Jones made me love it.

    I live 45 minutes from Mansfield Mo. That is where Laura and her husband moved and where she wrote all these books. They have kept her house in good shape and they have a museum. It is nothing fancy, I would not drive hundreds of miles out of the way to see it, but if your in the area it is well worth it. It is right off of highway 60.

    "Kids would give it 6 stars"

    This reading of Little House kept my seven year old boy and four year old girl quiet for the almost four hours and now they are playing house. They say they would give it six stars if they could. This tired mama would give it six stars too. I liked that the songs were actually sung/played...I grew up on this series but didn't know how all the songs went. So far we've listened to both this and Farmer Boy and will continue repeating them until we get our next credit next month!

    I really liked the story, but the narrator was so annoying I returned the book after the 2nd chapter..

    "great book for "children" of all ages"

    my second grade teacher read these books to us after recess in the p.m. my parents read the book and started giving it as gifts to aunts and uncles at christmas time. they were all hooked. to this day as an older person who can no longer see to read, all my nieces and nephews have gotten these books for their children and grandchildren so the tradition has lived on. imagine my delight to now discover they are on audible. what a privelege to listen again. I highly recommend these books to anyone--young or old.. a clean book for all. I truly believe you will enjoy it. this is how life was as the author experienced it growing up. (sorry I cannot seem to spell this a.m.)

    "Childhood favorite"

    I loved this book as a child, but really struggled with the Narrator of this audiobook. I was almost unable to finish. It is probably suited to the kids the book is aimed for, but to my older ears, she was hard to listen to. Still love the story, though.

    "Better than I imagined it would be"

    A lovely and nostalgic reading of a favorite childhood book, made specially lovely with the introduction of that constant character in the 'Little House' books: Pa's fiddle.

    "Narration could be better"

    I love everything about this story. The reading it's self was not very crisp. I think that part could have been better. Overall I would recommend it but wish the narration was better.

    "I love little house in the big woods"

    I loved this book so much. I think anyone who thinks otherwise shouldn't read it and do bad reveiws. And that is that
