I loved reading these books as a child and will be going out to buy the LITTLE HOUSE ON THE PRAIRE for my daughter. the same people who fostered racism are now the the ones trying to divide and rule through political correctness and identity politics

I really hope she did notice racial differences -- it would show that she wasn't an idiot.

I read all of her books as a kid. She is a great writer, and the books reflect the time period not racism.

Laura Ingalls Wilder’s name stripped from children’s book award over ‘Little House’ depictions of Native Americans - The Washington Post

'The award, reserved for authors or illustrators who have made “significant and lasting contribution to children’s literature,” will no longer be called the Laura Ingalls Wilder Award. '

'In its decision to remove Wilder’s name from the award, the library association had cited “anti-Native and anti-Black sentiments in her work” when it announced the review of Wilder’s award in February. '

'Still, Caroline Fraser, author of “Prairie Fires: The American Dreams of Laura Ingalls Wilder,” argued that the racial insensitivity in Wilder’s book shouldn’t mean that children shouldn’t read it. '

'Now, after years of complaints, the Association for Library Service to Children, a division of the American Library Association, says it voted Saturday to strip Wilder’s name from the award. '

'Until her death in 1957, she was beloved for the semi-autobiographical “Little House” children’s books, fictionalized versions of her family’s adventures traveling the Western frontier in their covered wagon and their encounters with Native Americans. '
