Because every girl should have the honors of growing up reading the Little House On The Prairie series and the series is one that both Serena and myself have loved reading while growing up. I thought that the Legacy Of Laura Ingalls Wilder DVD offered by Dean Butler with Legacy Documents would be a wonderful DVD for me and Serena to sit and watch together, and boy was I right!
Laura Ingalls Wilder published some amazing and most loved children’s literature. In 1930 she sat down and wrote the first of 8 books about her childhood and growing up on the unforgiving prairie. Did you know that Laura’s first book was turned down by every published who read it, because she was told writing for children was a waste of time. Now that there have been over 50 million copies sold and they have been translated into 26 different languages.
The Legacy Of Laura Ingalls Wilder is an amazing 1 hour documentary about Laura’s life that has been untold. It shares the hardships that were faced by Laura and her family and the long journey including turndowns along the path to publishing her beloved children’s literature! They bring in historians to talk about her and give insight to some of the questions that many may have about Laura, the type of person she was, her relationship with her daughter, and the real trials they faced.
They share reenactments from the real places that Laura and her family were really at, including the little house in the big woods, plum creek, and many other of the places we read and grow to love in her stories. They share the love story of her and and Almanzo, and the life long journey they embarked on at only 15 years old. Real life pictures are shown through out the DVD that were of Laura, her family, and the places she loved.
Me and Serena both loved this DVD, it was an amazing way to learn about the life behind the amazing woman who was able to run a homestead and become the world’s first famous children’s author. I loved seeing the places that were inside the story that you only can imagine, the people she wrote about in her story and even Almanzo’s family farm before he came to marry Laura. I would recommend this DVD to anyone who is or has read the Laura Ingalls Wilder series or any of the books, it really gives you an in depth look at the author you cannot get from anywhere else!
