100 - Little House on the Prairie
Originally published in 1935, Little House on the Prairie has inspired millions of readers with its simple, powerful tale of a family heading out West to make a new life for themselves. Based on Laura Ingalls Wilder’s actual childhood, the book (and the seven others in the series) is filled with adventure, hardship, and perseverance of the human spirit. It’s impossible not to like Pa, Ma, Mary, and little Laura, and become deeply invested in their story. The classic values at the heart of the book have appealed to readers of all ages, and will continue to inspire families for years to come.
