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.

1) I read the Little House on the Prairie books endlessly. All of them, loves them.

2) They found the wreck of the Titanic when I was in kindergarten!

This historical fiction book series is good to understand the past. It gives great background knowledge on how that time in place might‘ve been. It also is authentic in the essence of the story. The details are told historically correct and the author is able to draw on her own experiences to help write up a believable and enjoyable book for all!

This book is good because it is able to tell a story and keep the kids involved. While doing so, they get background knowledge of how life might‘ve been back then. They also become encouraged to explore the past more and understand the viewpoints in which the story is told by!

ljuliel This stuff ticks me off. I don‘t know how in the heck people from 100 years ago were supposed to write everything politically correct 100 years into their future. None of us could write something today that would still be completely relevant 100 years from now because we have no clue what wording will be right or wrong by then. 4mo

1️⃣ I read and reread Laura Ingalls Wilder‘s Little House series many, many times when I was little so when I was 10ish, my mother and I visited Missouri and Wilder‘s house. I‘m sorry to say it was a huge disappointment. I‘m sure there have been other book inspired vacations but that will always be the one I remember the most, other than reading James Michener‘s Hawaii while in Hawaii. 2️⃣ None planned. #Two4Tuesday

Ruthiella I‘ve never been to the Wilder house. Why was it disappointing? 6mo
rretzler I guess it wasn‘t what a 10 year old expected it to be. It was a small farm house, the one she and Almanzo built after they married and moved to Missouri. There was nothing reminiscent of the Little House books at all, just an historic house like any other and not much to see. I‘ve no idea what I really expected but I guess I thought that there might be something that would relate to the character I knew from the books. It‘s bigger now I think 6mo
TheSpineView I didn't realize her house was still standing. I would visit. Maybe it takes an adult perspective to appreciate it.🤔 6mo
See All 7 Comments
rretzler @TheSpineView Perhaps. I was a fairly mature kid, though, and had visited other historic homes and enjoyed them. I think I just expected more ties to the Laura Ingalls Wilder of the books and there really weren‘t any. If I recall, we were only shown a couple of rooms and not even allowed to go upstairs. It may be now that they have expanded what they show. This was 45 or so years ago. 6mo

This series is such a delight. Each of their adventures and struggles is seen through the eyes of young Laura. I love the honesty and innocence that comes from that. I love her Pa's strength and character. Laura's parents are a team and despite their hardships, they never stop supporting and loving each other. There's a scene where they cross the river in their covered wagon that was particularly harrowing.

Little House on the Prairie by Laura Ingalls Wilder, 1935. This is one of the most well know and classic examples of historical fiction out there. It‘s some fiction and some autobiography that comes together to create a really fun and wonderfully done novel that holds its own among the rest in the series.

Little House on the Prairie by Laura Ingalls Wilder is an incredible HF book and such an amazing way to introduce to children how living way back in the day was. This book highlights ESOL strategies 2, 4, and 13 and UDL principle 4.1.

karamank I remember when I was in elementary school our teacher would read this book out loud to us as we sat and listened together on the carpet. I found this book really fascinating because of how well it described how it was to live in the pioneer days. #lae3414sp19 (edited) 10mo
karamank I thought it was really interesting how the characters ate, dressed, and traveled by wagon. I also recently found out that the main character is the author telling the adventures of her and her family, which is really interesting. 10mo
karamank In my future classroom, I think it would be really cool to have students dress up as they were living back in the pioneer days and perform a RT! I also think it would be a great idea to have many class discussions about how different our lives are today from how they were back then. (edited) 10mo
karamank This book would be great to help students see the similarities and differences of two different generations. Here are some resources for this story: http://lastingthumbprints.com/little-house-on-the-prairie-unit-study-resources/ 10mo
DrSpalding When I was a child, this was one of my favorite shows and I did read the books as well. Readers theater is an excellent idea and this could be utilized during a social studies unit about education in the past. 9mo

Little house in the Prairie by Laura Ingalls Wilder is a historical fiction book that was published in 1935. This is a story about the Ingalls family had moved out of their home to the deep woods of Wisconsin. In this novel the family is warned of a lack of wolfs that could harm their cattle. They then are told there is a Native American tribe that is coming around to properties. Apparently the Ingalls are living in Osage territory.

Published in 1953, this historical fiction book paints the picture of a family in the 1900s traveling across country to find a new home on the prairie. This book is authentic in details of how they traveled, spoke, and what they wore and did in this time period. It is also an entertaining and exciting story for people unfamiliar to this time period.

As a fan I find this heartbreaking. I understand their point but even though Ma did not like the Indians Pa kinda stuck up for them. Good or bad this was her experience and yes there are teaching moments in it better tackled sooner than later. This book released in 1930 and has never been out of print. I think that says a lot

Anyone else see this. I didn't even know they were contemplating this.

I hate this. I understand the contemplation but it was a book written in a different time. At a different place in society. Did society back then suck yes but we should and kids should learn from it.

In all honesty it's odd, I don't want anyone to feel oppressed but at the same time I hate that these classics are being pulled or losing the honors they have won.

ravenlee I'm conflicted about LI Wilder. I never read these as a kid, so my first experience with them was my MIL giving them to me years ago. I couldn't get into it, but decided to give it another go in reading to my daughter. I have issues with what seems to me to be Pa's fecklessness and irresponsibility and the racism in the second book (as far as we got). Product of the time, but still... 2y
Rcoco I saw this and thought the same thing. Really what I was thinking was if it stops here, fine. But we can‘t re-write history and if they start censoring....well it‘s a slippery slope. 2y
LibrarianRyan @Rcoco exactly. They are already taking away To Kill a Mocking bird because of the words used within, but it did represent things of the time. Its the same for Mark Twain. They have a place. We do need more representation. I would love to see more schools teach The invisible man than Scarlet Letter and things like that. What next removing LH from school library's. 2y
See All 38 Comments
Riveted_Reader_Melissa Yea, I have to agree with you here. Don‘t censor history, or books from other eras that represented that time period...But read the books and discuss what‘s great about them, and how much has changed in our views since they were written. Gone With the Wind (for instance) is a classic of THAT time in history, but talk about that too. (edited) 2y
ralexist I hadn't seen this yet. This is not good though. It's hard 'cause it's a children's book and as such could be hard to have all of the in-depth convos necessary. That being said pretending that our history, even it's darkest moments, doesn't exist doesn't help move the conversation forward. Echoing Melissa, the convo about what's changed as well as what's still occurring is important no matter what age though. 2y
LibrarianRyan My other thing with this is that right now we are looking for more stories with authentic voices. LEW was authentic to her time. She was writing about her life. She wasn't pretending to be someone she wasn't. 2y
BethM I couldn't agree with you more. 2y
4thhouseontheleft I don‘t necessarily see an issue with changing the name of an award. But I do think it‘s wrong to edit her words, which has already been done. There should be a preface that explains that the wording was common of the place time and isn‘t reflective of what is acceptable now. Also, doesn‘t Mark Twain have an award named after him? His books have some similar issues. 2y
ladym30 Totally agree! 2y
4thhouseontheleft Also, maybe I‘m wrong, but her books aren‘t losing the award (I think she was the first one to receive it), right? They just changed the name to a more neutral title. 2y
LibrarianRyan @4thhouseontheleft as far as I know they are not taking her award away, just renaming it. As for the Twain award, it still exists, but it's a state wide award. Many of his books have already been edited for children, or pulled from schools and curriculum. 2y
ReadingRover I agree 2y
GloVerdino Agreed 2y
MarriedtoMrT I don‘t see a problem with changing the name of the award. I agree that we should still read classics and put them in context but that doesn‘t mean that she should be held up as an ideal. Also, I didn‘t know what the award was for without looking it up. The new title is more descriptive. 2y
Slajaunie I agree but if you know anything about Louisiana, they removed the statues and monuments in New Orleans because of these same ideas. You can't just accept the he good things. You have to take history of literature, your country, your family, etc. The way it is. How can we learn from past mistakes if we cover them up. Literature shows how society was at a specific point to n history. Instead of changing it, (edited) 2y
Slajaunie Use it to teach why things were done and what they changed. I firmly believe in students being taught how to think critically. Because books such as these would be perfect! 2y
LibrarianRyan @Slajaunie they did remove the statues, but the statues were not authentic to the time period. They were put in between the 20s and the 40s not right after the Civil War. LEW was writing her history not giving flattery to dead "heroes" of a battle. It would be different if she was writing about a period of time she didn't live in. She was authentic to her time growing up. Yes she was in her 90s but we collect personal from people that age. 2y
JazzFeathers This pushing history under the carpet is like saying the Halocaust never happened. I hate when people judge past literature by today's standards instead of trying to understand that past world. We are always speaking in favour of diversity, but then we want the past to be exactly like us. 2y
Weaponxgirl @MarriedtoMrT that's exactly how I feel. I also heard that she was made to edit one of her books in her time period though for saying something like before the settlers there were no people. She then had to change it to their were only Indians not settlers. 2y
LibrarianRyan @Weaponxgirl I'll have to look into that. Thanks. 2y
Weaponxgirl @LibrarianRyan I think it was in the guardian when they covered this. 2y
LibrarianRyan @Weaponxgirl thanks. I love to read about what they make authors change in edits. 2y
Lindy I‘m pleased to see this change. It doesn‘t prevent people from reading LIW‘s books, but now her racist views aren‘t placed on a pedestal as if we all agree it was a good way to look upon the world. 2y
Lindy @JazzFeathers Comparing this to saying the holocaust never happened doesn‘t make sense to me. It‘s more like taking the name of a Nazi-sympathizer off an award. 2y
Weaponxgirl https://www.theguardian.com/books/2018/jun/24/laura-ingalls-wilders-name-removed... I got it slightly wrong she wasn't made to change it but did apologise and change it. 2y
JazzFeathers @Lindy l was refering to the habit of moulding history as we find it more confortable. Of course the magnitud is different, but the attitud is the same. 2y
JazzFeathers @Lindy l suppose l inconsciously associated the idea with what has been proposed recently to change the names of some neurological illnesses because some where researched and andvances were made with experimentation in concentration camps (Hans Asperger was one of these docrors). Personally, l'm against it, because together with a Nazis name, also the history of many victims would be erased 2y
Slajaunie I am against changing any of it. There are people who wanted to ban To Kill a Mockingbird because of a slur against a certain group of people. All of this changing names and removing statues or more numbers is ridiculous. We need to be aware of the mistakes of the past to improve the future. 2y
Slajaunie @LibrarianRyan I understand the statues were not authentic to the period but it is still removing history. Put information in the statues about who they were or what they represented instead of spending money the city does not have on removing them. 2y
LibrarianRyan @Slajaunie I also agree with that. But, part of me wonders what happened to them when they were removed. 2y
LibrarianRyan @Slajaunie I agree with changing any of it as well. I see why people want it, and understand it more with the statues in public places, but I have a harder time with people removing literature. I read about the schools pulling TKaM and it's the same arguments from the past, just now "protecting" a different group. We need to stop protecting and learn to deal, and learn to make it better. 2y
Slajaunie @LibrarianRyan Agreed 💯 % 2y
Shannon_McKinney Well said! I seriously can‘t believe they‘re pulling an award from a book written by a woman who was born in the mid 1800‘s! It was a different period of time. By removing books and awards it doesn‘t change history one bit. If anything while reading these books it shows us how much we have grown as a society. Then on the other hand it shows us how far we have strayed from family values. I‘m glad I own a copy of all of her books. 2y
LibrarianRyan @Shannon_McKinney they are not taking her award away they are changing the name of the award hence removing her name from it. Sucks. 2y
Shannon_McKinney @LibrarianRyan ahh yes sorry I misspoke! & indeed it does suck. 2y
Gina Well said. I read the whole set to my boys and yes we had very meaningful conversations about the tuff stuff. I am glad I had that conversation with my children sooner than later. Whitewashing history is no way to learn from our past mistakes. 2y

Roman à clef translates as “Novel with a key.” It‘s a book that‘s based on real events, but the names, dates, incriminating details, etc. have been changed.

This is not a very old copy of Little House, but the one from my childhood, so I treasure it! Being on a mailing list for the series was a highlight of my early reading life. #romanaclef #oldcoolbooks

Moray_Reads @ValerieAndBooks I think about it a lot, I used to cry when we left every week! Sadly my younger siblings don't remember our visits add my Grandma died when I was seven. She did enjoy Little House though! 2y
ValerieAndBooks @LeahBergen I don‘t mind questions at all! Reading lips from TV or movie screens is Very Hard due to the 2-D quality so I often asked my family what was happening. Close caption equipment became availablein 1980 ($199 from Sears, a lot of $ back then) and even then not all shows would be CC. Built-in CC started to be required for new TVs in about 1995 — by that time most first-aired shows were CC. Now we need to make movies more accessible! (edited) 2y
ValerieAndBooks @Moray_Reads aww 💖 I‘m glad you have good memories 💖 2y
LeahBergen @ValerieAndBooks $199 certainly WAS expensive back then! And we didn‘t have the pause or rewind features on live shows like we do now. 😮 Did you obsessively watch The Donnie and Marie show like I did? 😆 I never cared so much about their music - it was more about Marie‘s outfits and hair.

An African American doctor saving the Ingalls from malaria was a high point in this novel. The representations of Indians is not terrible for the time it was written (1934) but is problematic today.
