The author of the well-loved children’s books was born February 7th, 146 years ago. The Little House In the Big Woods, On the Banks of Plum Creek and Little House on the Prairie are on my list of lifetime favorites. I’m know my children and I will never forget that very long winter we read The Long Winter.
No one knows how many children became life-long readers because of the adventure and fun found in Mrs. Wilder’s books. For all those hours of pleasure she gave to all of us, join me in saying thank you and Happy Birthday to Laura Ingals Wilder.
