Little House on the Prairie

Little House On The PrairieDo you remember the “Little House” series about Laura Ingalls Wilder? April marked the 75th anniversary of first publication of “Little House in the Big Woods“. Did you know that the series of Little House books has sold more than 41 million copies in the Unites States and has been translated into more than 40 languages. The house that she wrote her books in is still standing in Mansfield, MO. Laura was already famous in her lifetime, and her home (aff) was preserved as a museum shortly after her death in 1957 at age 90. Amazingly, her house averages about 40,000 visitors a year. Here are some scary numbers. Almanzo and Laura bought the farm in 1894 for $400. I can only imagine its worth now.

I still have all my Little House books. Even though they are not in great shape, I hope to pass them on to my kids. It is a great read for both kids and adults.

  1. Have you ever heard of the Canadian who called "Little Mosque" on the Prairie? It was a great little show that only survived for a little less then 1 season.

    Hey nice site and thanx for checking out mine!


  2. Kat, TV show wise, I like the shows when she is older. Though they did add quite a few characters that weren't in the books.

  3. What a great post! I totally loved watching “Little House on the Prairie”. It’s such a good show! I had no idea her house was still standing and that it is now a museum. I wanna go!! 🙂
