Laura Ingalls Wilder: Real-Life Pioneer of the Little House Books based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.
Similar to other Laura Ingalls Wilder biographies, this book depicts the life and work of LIW as well as a brief bit on her daughter, Rose. Wilder was a pioneer in the late 1800s who traveled across the Midwest in a covered wagon and later wrote about her experiences in her Little House on the Prairie series. The author breaks up the book into simple chapters and language so it is easily digestible for middle school readers. In addition to the history, the author includes a Wilder¿s chronology, chapter notes, and supplementary reading suggestions. Black-and-white photographs from the Wilder collection also accompany the narrative. Unfortunately, the author does not present any new information that differs from other Laura Ingalls Wilder biographies. A thoroughly researched book, but other Wilder biographies would do just as well. Additional Selection.
