  1. It is a beautiful big book. Very interesting and gives me lots to think about, how things work behind the scenes to ever bring this book to the public.

  2. I just love this book. I haven’t been able to read it all. I have gone through it, looking at all the pictures etc. It is just a beautiful book, that I will always treasure, and will pass down to my grandchildren.

    • I have loved Little House On The Prairie since I was nine years old. I am now 74years old and very soon 75years old!

  3. It is a beautiful book and I cannot wait to take time to read it this summer. My only wish is that be available in digital form due to my poor eyesight. However, I will take out my magnifying glass and dive in!

  4. Having had this on order for 4 months, I was really disappointed that Amazon just suddenly cancelled my order. Never fear! I called you direct, and spoke to Jennifer and she took my order and said it would ship on Friday! Excited about finally getting this!

  5. I read the books at 8 and it was the story of the life seen by a child, and this new book is the same life story but from an adult. It’s magical to see how the original story have been so well adapt to the childhood. When we are adults so many things are not so beautiful… The original story make the little house books, more special for me.. as a sweet remembrance the childhood unawareness.
