Laura Ingalls and her family live deep in the Big Woods of Wisconsin. Pioneer life is sometimes hard, since the family must grow or catch all their own food as they get ready for the cold winter. But it is also exciting as Laura and her folks celebrate Christmas with homemade toys and treats, do the spring planting, bring in the harvest, and make their first trip into town. And every night they are safe and warm in their little house, with the happy sound of Pa’s fiddle sending Laura and her sisters off to sleep.
Little House in the Big Woods is the first of five literature books studied in The Treasure Trove of Literature, Level 1. The relatively easy reading level of this book gives the student a chance to learn essential literary analysis skills at the beginning of the course. Laura Ingalls Wilder’s story of frontier life also enriches the fourth-grade student’s exploration of U.S. history, culture, and geography in Our United States of America.
