Description

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 as both a unique glimpse into America's frontier history and a heartwarming, unforgettable story.

Professional reviews

"Laura Ingalls Wilder would be delighted with Cherry Jones's narration of her classic work. Jones enlivens this beloved compendium of frontier life for a new generation. She tells with verve the details of family chores and special events. Yet these are just the backdrop for the adventures of young Laura, the exuberant and not so perfect sister whom countless young people have championed--a girl who would like as big a piece of meat as her older sister; who can be frightened by her father's boisterous play but relishes his singing and fiddle playing; who likes churning and baking days best; and who remembers every detail of each family gathering. Jones's light and fresh tone brings a childlike wonder and enthusiasm to the familiar story as it unfolds once again. Share this recording with the whole family. A.R.
