About this item


About the Book

This box set of Wilder's favorite stories from her childhood contains the first five books of the beloved series. This set is released just in time for the brand-new "Little House on the Prairie" miniseries, scheduled to air on ABC this fall.

Book Synopsis

This five-book paperback box set of the classic series features Garth Williams's illustrations in gorgeous full color.

The books in the timeless Little House series tell the story of Laura Ingalls Wilder's real childhood as an American pioneer and are cherished by readers of all generations. They offer a unique glimpse into life on the American frontier and tell the heartwarming, unforgettable story of a loving family.

Little House in the Big Woods

Wolves and panthers and bears roam the deep Wisconsin woods in the 1870s. In those same woods, Laura lives with Pa and Ma, and her sisters, Mary and Baby Carrie, in a snug little house built of logs. Pa hunts and traps. Ma makes her own cheese and butter. All night long, the wind howls lonesomely, but Pa plays the fiddle and sings, keeping the family safe and cozy.

Farmer Boy

As Laura Ingalls is growing up in a little house in Kansas, Almanzo Wilder lives on a big farm in New York. He and his brothers and sisters work hard from dawn to supper to help keep their family farm running. Almanzo wishes for just one thing--his very own horse--but he must prove that he is ready for such a big responsibility.

Little House on the Prairie

Pa Ingalls decides to sell the little log house, and the family sets out for Indian country! They travel from Wisconsin to Kansas, and there, finally, Pa builds their little house on the prairie. Sometimes farm life is difficult, even dangerous, but Laura and her family are kept busy and are happy with the promise of their new life on the prairie.

On the Banks of Plum Creek

Laura's family's first home in Minnesota is made of sod, but Pa builds a clean new house made of sawed lumber beside Plum Creek. The money for materials will come from their first wheat crop. Then, just before the wheat is ready to harvest, a strange glittering cloud fills the sky, blocking out the sun. Soon millions of grasshoppers cover the field and everything on the farm. In a week's time, there is no wheat crop left at all.

By the Shores of Silver Lake

Pa Ingalls heads west to the unsettled wilderness of the Dakota Territory. When Ma, Mary, Laura, Carrie, and baby Grace join him, they become the first settlers in the town of De Smet. And Pa begins work on the first building in what will soon be a brand-new town on the shores of Silver Lake.

From the Back Cover

Set during the pioneer days of the late 1800s and early 1900s, Laura Ingalls Wilder's books chronicle her life growing up on the Western frontier. For the first time in the history of the Little House books, these new editions feature Garth Williams' interior art in vibrant, full color. Come along for the adventure with this collector's set of the first five Little House books.

We gifted this to our great-niece for her 5th Birthday. Brought back wonderful memories of reading this series to our oldest son as well as reading the collection ourselves as children.

My ten year old received the collection for Christmas - She is an avid reader and wants to read the entire series. We saw "Little House Christmas" at our local theater and she was dazzled. Love of reading is the very best gift you can give a child. Like, her mom, who read the series over and over, she will also treasure them.

These books are the best! My grandfather got me the set in s nice blue case when I was little and I used to spend hours reading them over and over! I am going to purchase them again to have my children read them. I think kids today need to read them to get a real appreciation fir what life is really about and the importance of family. I highly recommend these books for any age group!
