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. '
