“Little House on the Prairie” is one of the most successful dramatic series in television history. This TV legend began with the pilot in March of 1974, which introduced the Ingalls family to millions of viewers around the world. It was subsequently picked up as a series in September and ran on NBC for nine seasons until 1983.
. The Little House was where the Ingalls family lived in Walnut Grove, and later, the Carter family. The Ingalls family moved to Plum Creek after being ordered to leave their home in Kansas by the government, because they were on the wrong side of territorial lines. They Finally moved to Iowa and sold the farm to the Carter family. It was among the very few buildings not destroyed in 1901 when the townspeople of Walnut Grove blew the town up.
One of the greatest things about reading Little House on the Prairie with children is introducing topics such as resourcefulness and conservation. Items like pens and blank paper were luxuries not readily available to the Ingalls family.
