Laura Ingalls Wilder (1867–1957) was born in a log cabin in the Wisconsin woods. His eyes get wide hearing about the daily tasks of pioneer life. On the Banks of Plum Creek has funny and suspenseful moments, like the grasshopper plague. With her family, she pioneered throughout America’s heartland during the 1870s and 1880s, finally settling in Dakota Territory. She married Almanzo Wilder in 1885; their only daughter, Rose, was born the following year. The Wilders moved to Rocky Ridge Farm at Mansfield, Missouri, in 1894, where they established a permanent home. We have really enjoyed the audible version of these books.

Laura Ingalls Wilder wrote for the entire world, or at least those members of the world who enjoy being captured and held willing prisoner by a story. She just happened to remember that children are an integral part of that group. Listening in the car from Davenport, Iowa back to Chicago to finish it, I can't recall stretches of road (gulp).

These are the childhood classics, on super high quality sturdy paper (the kind classy textbooks use), they are durable and glossy. Also, the garth williams illustrations have been gently colored in, and are still lovely. This is an absolute keeper. And the durable paper quality makes this worth stocking up on -- it should last for at least a generation or two.

Excellent early reader series for kids just getting acquainted with chapter books. Genuine American history from a child's viewpoint. These are classics. Sturdy with colorful pictures and large font. My daughter already read them twice and asked for the next four in the series. Great coming of age stories about having good character and working hard to overcome difficulty. Builds the value of education into a child. Why can't modern children's authors write with this level of quality and character? You won't be disappointed.

No matter how many times my family reads these true
Stories, they bring us back to when simpler times surely seemed
Like better times. We are looking forward to visiting the Wilder homestead this summer in Malone. NY. It’s just an hour and 30 minutes from our summer place and we couldn’t be more excited!! We feel quite fortunate to have had Laura’s life to reflect on and remind us of what’s truly important, family! Thank you to Laura and her heirs who keep her profound legacy alive for our children and grandchildren.

This review is for the kindle edition set of the first five books in the series. These books are a great read, we already know that. I want to talk about the kindle experience of these books.
I've been waiting for these to come out on kindle for awhile. The books separately are 8.99 as of now, and it's a little cheaper to buy this package of 5 books instead of doing it individually.
My biggest complaint about this set is the navigation. I can easily choose which book to read from the "go to" kindle menu. But, after choosing the book you want to read, you cannot further navigate into the book by the table of contents. I also bought one of the little house books not included in this set, and this problem does not occur, I'm able to navigate to different chapters if I choose. I wish I had bought these books individually to avoid this annoyance, even if it would've been a little more expensive. If you don't care about this issue I would purchase this as I have found no issues with the content.
The illustrations are all there as they are in the books, even the smaller illustrations at the beginning of each chapter.

These books were perfect for my second grader to read. These books are readable at his age yet still challenging enough exposing him to broader vocabulary words. I never read this books as a child, so it is my first time as well. Farmer Boy is better directed to a boy, but we've enjoyed the first two books.

My grandparents owned farms and I recall many of the things described in these books. Though my children do not have these experiences, These books gives them some exposure to what life is like growing on a farm. Though a bit more romanticized than I remember...

Timeless, endearing story of pioneer life. My son loves these books. His eyes get wide hearing about the daily tasks of pioneer life. On the Banks of Plum Creek has funny and suspenseful moments, like the grasshopper plague. We have really enjoyed the audible version of these books.

My kids (ages 6-13) and I love The Little House series. We love to read about how American settlers of the West worked hard & persevered in spite of horrible circumstances—with their faith intact. Even though they physically worked harder to do daily tasks and produce goods as a family that we do not think twice about, they were probably happier and more fulfilled, and more mature at an earlier age than modern American families. Their values and character were stronger, simpler, & more wholesome than today’s Americans, too. We are better people just for having read all the Little House books. I recommend this series for children & adults to appreciate our modern conveniences, and to be inspired to live more simply, with more character, love, faith, & grit—just like Laura Ingalls Wilder’s family.
Although these books are entertaining . . . and informative! . . . enough to enjoy for a quiet evening read, give your children and grand children the opportunity to hear, and to see through the eyes of Laura Ingalls Wilder, what life was like in America during the Westward Expansion.

Her writing is as colorful and pleasantly descriptive as can be, largely because Laura became "the eyes" for her sister Mary when Mary lost her sight. Years of describing tiny wildflowers and rushing rivers and skies full of sunset shaped this daughter of the prairie into a novelist, par excellence. She knew her craft, her audience, her setting and her theme; this, for the reader, is a fluid, heart-warming, scintillating picture of life as the pioneers knew it.

In this volume, Pa has traded their horses, wagon and wagon cover for Mr. Hanson's dugout and land on the banks of Plum Creek. Once again Ma and the girls are making a home in the unsettled wilderness, and once again, Pa is planting and hewing and hunting and carving out a good life for his family. This episode, in particular, gives an idea of what it was like to participate in the life of a growing prairie township, attending school and starting a church, and learning to be good neighbors, often with little to give but kindness.

The hardships were sore, but the Ingalls family was accustomed to hardships. The story of the love they nurtured is something rich and flavorful to share with those YOU love, and if you are "pioneering" by yourself, brew a cup of coffee (Pa preferred a dish of tea!) and settle in for a true and wonderful story.
