Each gorgeous page of LAURA'S ALBUM is a doorway into the private world of Laura Ingalls Wilder, and offers a unique glimpse of what her life was like. Here is the fascinating true story of this remarkable pioneer woman's life as well as an unforgettable tale of our own American past.

Booklist Review

Gr. 3^-6. Noted Wilder historian Anderson has compiled a scrapbook of photos, early writings, letters, and drawings saved by Wilder and now preserved in various private and public collections throughout the U.S. The mementos are arranged by decade and explained in captions and a succinct account of the author's long and eventful life. Many of the photos were previously published in pamphlets available at the homesites, but the use of high-quality paper and modern printing techniques enhances their clarity, especially for the oldest images. The later chapters also contain material from the HarperCollins archives, including advertising posters, publicity photos, and reproductions of some of the original Helen Sewell illustrations. Appended with a detailed chronology and illustration credits, this is a worthy companion to the Little House series that should be welcomed wherever the stories are popular. Adult fans will be interested, too. --Kay Weisman
