The Lovereading4Kids comment
A classic story of childhood, Little House on the Prairie tells how Laura and Mary, their little sister Baby Carrie and their Pa and Ma pack up their home in Wisconsin and set out for the wide open prairie where Pa is sure they can find a better life. They are true pioneers. But, new troubles confront the family including the risk of fire and a terrifying moment when their home is circled by Indians. How the family pull together and especially how the sisters, Laura and Mary, make the most of their intrepid childhood is heart-warming.
The Good Book Guide Review. The most popular of the Little House books, this one tells how Laura's family moved from the ‘Big Woods' in their covered wagon and travelled West (with the American frontier) to the Prairie. Adventure all the way, but the enduring quality of these marvellous books is the feeling that home is where your family is - even if bears and unfriendly Indians are on the prowl outside.

'Here we are, Caroline!” said Pa. Right here we’ll build our house.”
Will there be enough land for all of them?
