Little House has Strong Female Characters
This high quality chapter book was named a Horn Book Children’s Classic in 1976 and was listed as a Notable Children’s Books of 1940 – 1954 by the American Library Association. It is appropriate for students in third through seventh grade. This endearing classic is based on the real life of the author, Laura Wilder, who moved from Wisconsin to Kansas by covered wagon in 1869. The family must be very self-reliant as they face the perils of prairie life. The father, Pa Ingalls works hard to build a house for his family. Many details are given describing the effort that went into making a log cabin. Ma Ingalls is portrayed as a strong woman, who assists Pa to make a home for her family in the desolate prairie. She helps him build the cabin, puts out a fire that threatens to destroy their home, and makes sure to ration the food properly. Pa is the physical protector of the family and along with the family dog, he guards against horse thieves, Indians, and dark nights. But, Ma is the moral protector. She ensures that the children are protected from evil words and actions. The older children, Mary and Laura, are counted on to do their part to keep the family alive. Laura, more adventurous, helps her father skin the animals. Mary frequently is assigned to watch Carrie, the baby. The family, fiercely independent, must take aid from neighbors in order to build their roof and make a well. In turn, they come to their neighbors’ aid when needed, illustrating the concepts of cooperation and friendship as an integral part of survival. The family lives through an outbreak of malaria, an encounter with Indians, and the cold winter. In less than a year they have a nice little homestead, complete with a cow for milk. The family is very happy with their home and they fully appreciate any little extras they receive. For example, on Christmas, Laura and Mary are thrilled when they each receive their own tin cup to drink from, a piece of cake made of real white sugar, and a penny. Although the book is written from the perspective of a young Caucasian girl, it does present multicultural issues. The local settlers distrust and dislike the Indians. However, Pa Ingalls shares his tobacco and supper with an Indian who comes to their cabin. Later, the Indian Pa befriended, convinces the members of local tribes not to attack the settlers. But in the end, Pa decides to leave the Kansas prairie because he is three miles into Indian Territory and he believes that the government is sending soldiers to force him out. This book could definitely be used in the curriculum when discussing Native Americans. It could also be used when learning about pioneers and westward expansion. The female characters are surprisingly strong, considering it was written by a woman born in 1867. The teacher could play fiddle music from that time period, while students create corn husk dolls or other toys from that era.
One of my classic favorites
It's a great book with plenty of interesting characters. I used to have a copy similar to this but but got lost in transition. I was so excited to find a copy for a great price. This book is great for kids and adults alike! I have to say this is one of my favorite books of all time that doesn't get old. Great plot. Always interesting.Just an all around great book.
Layra Ingralls Wilder
Great set of books by a very gifted writer,who explained her life in her books.This set of books are great reading for young kids and very interesting for them to follow her journey. The illustrations are also done by a great illustrator,Garth Williams,who makes her books come to life.These books are collectable and once read will leave a lasting memory.
A true classic
I bought this book to complete my neices set. She loved the Christmas book and wanted to read the others. They follow the same characters as the tv show and a sweet and innocent. My only complaint is the reading is a little difficult. My neice is a third grader and struggled during parts of the book. The action n this book was a little slower than the christmas one and took her longer to read too.
Little House on the Prairie
What do I like, love, or dislike about this book? Well first of all it's Little House on the Prairie...what is there to dislike? *l* We bought this book for our just turned seven year old who is an advanced reader. She is enjoying it very much! I have to admit I love sharing the Little House series with her and seeing it fresh through her eyes. If anyone were to ask me if they should buy this book or series I would say "Yes" in an instant!
