Wilder, L. E. (1963). Little House on the Prairie. New York: Little House Heritage Trust.

Genre: Historical non-fiction

Grades: 3rd-6th

Audience: Parents, Teachers, Students

I would give this book a four. There is some very obvious racism against Native Americans in this book, but it is a good representation of the time period in which the Ingalls family lived and the troubles that could occur living in a pioneer situation.

Have you ever heard of Laura Ingalls Wilder?
