Pioneer Sisters

Good Children's literature should probably not be abridged versions of popular teen stories.

This oversimplified adaptation from the original Little House on The Prairie shows, through Laura's pioneer life, that actions have consequences.

Brief Review

Pioneer Sisters brings oversimplified sections of Laura Ingalls Wilder's classic work to younger children, in 73 large print pages.  The Ingalls move from The Big Woods, to the Prairies, and finally to their Plum Creek dugout. The color and phrasing of the original are lost. The theme is not as evident, and the style is flat. Your child, when older, should read the original.
