Laura Ingalls Wilder grew up on the prairie, where food was something one worked for, cooking was a big part of daily life, and mealtime was a chance to gather with family and give thanks. By watching Pa hunt and farm and by helping Ma prepare the food, Laura learned the pleasures that come from a family working together. Laura also experienced the joy that comes from sharing food, made with love and care, with family and friends. Here are over 100 unique recipes celebrating the foods and cooking techniques of Laura's pioneer childhood. Taken from dishes described in the beloved Little House books, these recipes were carefully researched by Barbara M. Walker and tested in her own kitchen. From pancake men and pumpkin pie to vanity cakes and ice cream, these recipes give adults and children alike the chance to experience a taste of Laura's childhood, reminding us of the connection between the food on the table and the work involved in getting it there.Notable Children’s Books of 1979 (ALA)Best Books of 1979 (SLJ)Notable 1979 Children's Trade Books in Social Studies (NCSS/CBC)Children's Books of 1979 (Library of Congress)1980 Western Heritage Award Book Details:Format: HardcoverPublication Date: 9/20/1979Pages: 256Reading Level: Age 8 and Up
