Little House on the Prairie/Expert Profile

Ask A Question


I can answer most questions pertaining to the book series written by Laura Ingalls Wilder, as well as questions regarding Laura's actual life, and questions regarding things that happened in the television series. If I don't know the answer myself, I enjoy researching to find the answers.

Experience in the area

I have read the LHOTP book series every year since I was 11 years old. (That would be 33 times!) I have also enjoyed reading biographical information about Laura and her family. I was lucky enough to get to visit the home/museum of Laura and Almanzo in Mansfield, MO. I have watched the television series for years, and thoroughly enjoy it; though sometimes I am frustrated by little inconsistencies I catch as I watch. That's what makes me think it would be interesting to help answer questions others might have!


I have had seven items published in Children's Ministry Magazine.


B.S. in Elementary Education/Early Childhood Education from Southwest Baptist University.

Thanks so much for your question, Mamie, and I apologize for taking so long to reply.    I've often wondered myself why the directors had Laura in braids on the television show, while Mary and Carrie did

I think maybe you are asking about why Caroline and Charles are not in the Little House on the Prairie television series much after Season 8, rather than Season 5.  At the beginning of Season 9, in the

Hi Julie!  I checked online and wasn't able to find an image of Nellie or Laura with the Talking Machine. So...I found the episode online and took a screen shot of Nellie (at her meanest!) with the Talking
