Based on a true story. 1st in the Laura Ingalls Wilder's celebrated Little House series:

U.S. National Education Association "Teachers' Top 100 Books for Children". School Library Journal  ranked number 19 among Top 100 of all-time children's novels.

In this book, Laura tells the story of growing up in the Big Woods of Wisconsin in the 1860's. There were no houses for miles around, just the Ingalls family: Charles and Caroline (Pa and Ma), Mary, Laura, and baby Carrie. Here we follow the day-to-day events of the life of Laura Ingall's over the course of a year. The story begins as the family prepares for winter, storing away food and preserving meat. During the long nights Pa tells stories and entertains the girl's with his fiddle. In the spring the family makes maple syrup. Summertime brings long days of hard work in the fields, and the fall brings the harvest. As the seasons change the chores and play-time of Laura and her big sister, Mary, also change. Little House in the Big Woods is a delightful look at family life on the frontier.
