Publisher Summary

The adventures continue for Laura Ingalls and her family as they leave their little house in the Big Woods of Wisconsin and set out for Kansas. They travel for many days in their covered wagon until they find the best spot to build their little house on the prairie. Soon they are planting and plowing, hunting wild ducks and turkeys, and gathering grass for their cows. Sometimes pioneer life is hard, but Laura and her folks are always busy and happy in their new little house.

As a kid, this book made me want to pack up all my earthly possessions and head off on a journey across the prairie. I loved imagining what it would be like to be a pioneer. Now, it’s fun to be able to share this book series with my pre-schooler, but I do find that it’s probably a better read-on-your-own book than read-aloud book.
