Can’t say I’m well-versed in the Little House series.

“But you’re a children’s librarian” you say? Yes, yes – well, we all have books on our “shelves of shame” (as the wonderful Bookends blog puts it).

The New Yorker recently did a piece on Laura Wilder and her daughter Rose, who worked together in creating the landmark Little House series. I may not know the books (yet), but the authors’ back story makes for a good starting point. Click the image below to get started.
