    I grabbed this book, along with a bunch of other biographies, at the library for my 8 year old daughter. I saw it laying open on her bed one day and I picked it up and began to read it myself. I have always been interested in the life of Laura Ingalls Wilder. Although this book is written for elementary age or maybe middle school it was still enjoyable for me. :-)

    Laura Ingalls Wilder's books about pioneer life have always captivated me so I chose to read a biography of her, written by Emma Carlson Berne. My daughter did a report on Laura Ingalls Wilder and read the very same book. This book is perfect for 4th grade and up because it uses words that children can understand and goes into more detail about what life was really like back then. I enjoyed the little side notes and boxes with interesting facts about Laura's life and the times she lived in. The book covered her birth all the way through her death. It highlights the differences between what she wrote in the Little House books and what her life was truly like. She left out some of the places she lived and some very hard events in her life, like her baby brother Freddie who died at 9 months old. She chose to leave some things out of her books because she felt they would be too sad for children to read. As I read about her life as a homesteader I was shocked at what a hard way of life that was and how many different times her parents started over from scratch in a new place with many of their homesteads being failures. Laura waited to write her Little House books until she was in her 60's. Her independent, travel-loving, novelist daughter Rose encouraged her to write her stories. Rose even edited the books for her. I hope to someday take my girls to Mansfield, MO and visit Laura's home there.

    4 1/2 starsThis was a very good 'starter' biography for those whom haven't read any biographies that are 'real life' of Ms. Wilder. So many of the biographies out there have added false things in or changed up her life etc. This one covered just about everything about her life including the things that she herself left out of her novels, and WHY she left them out. Also the 'story' behind the last novel that was published after her death and why it doesn't have the same 'feel' as you read it as the rest of the novels do. There isn't lots and lots of information on one subject but enough to allow the reader to go 'oh, I wondered about that'... Also in the back is a timeline of her life and some other extras.

    This is a pretty simple biography of Laura Ingalls Wilder "designed for the middle school reader" but I still really enjoyed it. For one thing, the book includes actual pictures of Laura, Mary, Carrie, Pa, Ma, and Almanzo! Pa has a crazy beard!I have long loved all the Little House books and wished that some of that life still existed today.
