A great introduction to the beloved Little House series. Wonderful pictures to help illustrate a bygone era for young children. Great to read along with the Little House first chapter book series.

I liked that the illustrations were appropriate for the book and believe they enhanced the text. The illustrations help the readers determine the setting and time period of the book. The illustrations depict the characters wearing "old" clothes such as bonnets and driving a covered wagon. These illustrations date the story as being from a different time period.
The main purpose of this text is to describe how American pioneers lived in the late 1800s.
