Book Review: Laura Ingalls Wilder

Rating: ★★★☆☆

This is a picture book biography, illustrated in a folk-art style of painting that begins to capture the spirit and warmth of the Little House books.  It is really the paintings that make this book interesting; most author biographies are read when the author’s works are already familiar, and this book seems to be intended as a picture-book summary of the series.  It is a challenge to cover so many events in a few pages; the Ox-Cart Man is a book from a similar era that covers less time and is more effective.  Still, this could make a nice introduction, read once or twice just before beginning the series.
