MY HERO recommends this book to children readers.
Though best known as the author of the Little House books, Laura Ingalls Wilder led a full, rich life that spanned almost a century of American history. All through her life Laura saved mementos of her past, including early writings, letters, drawings, and photographs, which have been lovingly preserved in private and public collections across the country.

Now, for the first time ever, these photographs, writings, and memorabilia have been gathered together in one incredible volume by noted Little House historian William Anderson. Each gorgeous page of LAURA'S ALBUM is a doorway into the private world of Laura Ingalls Wilder, and offers a unique glimpse of what her life was like. Here is the fascinating true story of this remarkable pioneer woman's life as well as an unforgettable tale of our own American past.

I once did this biography on Laura Ingalls Wilder and I learned so much about her. I learned that she went though alot of bad and good things. Also she had to move quite a few times. I enjoy reading all of her books. I have alot of them too. She inspires me to be just like her because I love reading and writing.So, I recommend children and even adults to read all of her series.

My 6th grade teacher read the Little House books to us, and I remember looking forward anxiously to each chapter. I was inspired, and grateful to have to opportunity to experience vicariously the love and joys of the Ingalls family.  I believe EVERY child should read, or have read to them, the Little House books.  I am 54, and just finished reading the series again, and enjoyed it just as much as I always do. I would like to thank Laura for sharing her life with generations.

I named my first daughter Laura Elizabeth after Laura Elizabeth Ingalls.  Little House in the Big Woods is the first book that I remember absolutely loving. I still love the books and recently read them again at age 60.
