Laura Ingalls Wilder Was Born
February 7, 1867

Have you ever dreamed of living in another time? Imagine what it would have been like to be one of the early settlers of the American frontier, moving by covered wagon through wide, windy prairies. You can really get a sense of what it was like by reading one of the books in the Little House series. These semi-autobiographical stories were written by Laura Ingalls Wilder who was born on this day, February 7, in 1867.
