Read full description of the books:
This biography of Laura Ingalls Wilder gives a solid overview of the writer's life, but sometimes resembles her own novels a bit too much. The language is simple and easy to read, much like the Little House books, and there are details in the biography that did not appear in the heavily revised stories written by Laura herself. However, the descriptions of Laura's early life mostly follow the plots of the stories, and the harsher realities are quickly glossed over, as they were in the original novels. The most interesting part of the biography is in the final chapters, where Laura's process of writing and revisiting her childhood are described, including the editing done by her daughter Rose. Recommended for young readers who have read the Little House books and aren't ready for an adult biography. Ages 7-12.
