“Based on the real-life experiences of the author, this series introduces a new generation of readers to life on the American frontier. I couldn’t stop reading it! I recommend this book for people who love history.” (Brightly)
From the Back Cover
The adventures continue for Laura Ingalls and her family as they leave their little house in the Big Woods of Wisconsin and set out for Kansas. They travel for many days in their covered wagon until they find the best spot to build their little house on the prairie. Soon they are planting and plowing, hunting wild ducks and turkeys, and gathering grass for their cows. Sometimes pioneer life is hard, but Laura and her folks are always busy and happy in their new little house.

You can certainly find the paperback version with the black and white illustrations more cheaply, but I wanted this particular version to read to my girls because I noted when I first started this series with them, the old fashioned language and concepts were hard to follow and they lost interests. The colored pictures seems to make the story more interesting for them, and they are more engaged. Not sure if this is really due to the pictures or completely random, but the book is beautifully done, and from a personal perspective, I really like it - I loved the series as a child, but had never seen the pictures in color - added a nice touch for me as the parent reading the book each night.
There are two versions of this book that are available for the Kindle. One, from HarperCollins, costs a little more ($6.99 as of this writing) but contains the beautiful Garth Williams illustrations. The other, from Reading Essentials, which I purchased, cost 99 cents but you only get the text -- NO illustrations. And the text is in all boldface and is improperly formatted in places, as if someone did a bad cut-and-paste job and didn't adjust the margins.
So if you just want the bare story, this is the one for you. You can't beat the price for just the words, and that keeps my rating from being just one star.
I started giving these books to my grandchild, and at first we read them together, then she started reading them on her own. Now, we watch the old television series together, and it brings back memories of our days reading together. We both love the television series as much as we do the books, they portray the life as it was. Maybe not as primitive, but certainly as children , they accept the hard work and the limited income the Wilder's have. This family is a superb e ample if a hapoy family, their ups and downs, and they have many, and the manger in which the family faces each obstacle. An excellent example of a true family life.
Don't listen to the people who say it's boring because it's definitely not. It just for older kids. Please don't make reviews saying "my 5 year old got bored" of course they would they're 5 at least wait till they can read on their own.
Kids 10+ it's great. Girls may like it more.

The book I bought is particularly well worn given it is an ex library book but as described and in good condition given that it is ex- library book.
Even when walking our dog at the woods after it had been three weeks since we read it !
