Most Helpful Customer Reviews
The book has illustrations of houses, markers, and information on the "Little House" sites. In most cases there are only historical markers, replicas of houses and museums. The work attests to devoted volunteer work across the country dedicated to a single series of books. Of couse the TV series added to the popular. A must have for a road trip across the country with a child who is reading, or even an adult who loved the books.
