The first book in Laura Ingalls Wilder’s treasured Little House series—now available as an ebook! This digital version features Garth Williams’s classic illustrations, which appear in vibrant full color on a full-color device and in rich black-and-white on all other devices.
This beloved story of a pioneer girl and her family begins in 1871 in a log cabin on the edge of the Big Woods of Wisconsin. Four-year-old Laura lives in the little house with her Pa, her Ma, her sisters Mary and Carrie, and their dog, Jack. Pioneer life is sometimes hard for the family, but it is also exciting as they celebrate Christmas with homemade toys and treats, do the spring planting, bring in the harvest, and make their first trip into town. And every night Laura and her family are safe and warm in their little house, with the happy sound of Pa’s fiddle to send them off to sleep.
The nine Little House books are inspired by Laura’s own childhood and have been cherished by generations of readers as both a unique glimpse into America’s frontier history and as heartwarming, unforgettable stories.
They're Back! Everyone's favorite aardvark returns to celebrate a quarter-century of success in Arthur's Nose: 25th Anniversary Limited Edition by Marc Brown. As a prologue to this first story in which Arthur starred, Brown shows the evolution of his drawings of Arthur from 1976 to the present, along with a sidebar of "Fun Facts" (e.g., "D.W. has an imaginary friend named Nadine"), followed by a photo gallery of Brown's family with some pretty clear correlations between the author's relatives and Arthur's. Aspiring writers and artists also get a peek at the original manuscript and sketches for Arthur's Nose. (Little, Brown, 40p ages 4-8 ; Apr.) For story hour, Little House in the Big Woods: Special Read-Aloud Edition by Laura Ingalls Wilder, illus. by Garth Williams, expands its trim size (to 8 U x 10 7/8") and type size but retains the classic charcoal drawings and the famous tale of Laura and her pioneer family living in the Big Woods of Wisconsin. ( Apr.)

My mother would read to me every night and the Little House books were my favorite bestowing me with a life long love of reading. But the illustrator, Garth Williams painted true magic with his gorgeous elfin eyed children and use of color. Read to your children, there’s more to childhood than screens.
A extremely wonderful thing to do is read something like this illustration and to have your mind imagine how Laura and early pioneers like herself and her family is so exciting and a look back in time of early settlers and of the time period of History. I read these books when I was 10 years old I am 30 now and I still love these illustration's and remember them great for kids and adults who love hiatory
