The adventures continue for Laura Ingalls and her family as they leave their little house in the Big Woods of Wisconsin and set out for Kansas. They travel for many days in their covered wagon until they find the best spot to build their little house on the prairie. Soon they are planting and plowing, hunting wild ducks and turkeys, and gathering grass for their cows. Sometimes pioneer life is hard, but Laura and her folks are always busy and happy in their new little house.

Reviewed by Horn Book Guide Reviews (Horn Book Guide Reviews 2011 Spring)
This seventy-fifth-anniversary edition includes colorized versions of Garth Williams's classic understated illustrations (added in 1953). The shades are appropriately frontier-y, all muted browns and sunrise yellows, but the gleaming-white pages are a bit of a distraction. Some diverting ephemera--the book's first jacket, letters between Wilder and her editor, details about 2008's Little House musical--are appended. Copyright 2011 Horn Book Guide Reviews.
Reviewed by Horn Book Guide Reviews (Horn Book Guide Reviews 1998)
This larger-sized gift edition of the classic, with pink-ribbon page marker and a busy and distracting pole-and-vine border surrounding each page, is truly unnecessary publishing. Copyright 1998 Horn Book Guide Reviews
