    Little House on the Prairie was a terrific, nonviolent family show that lasted for years. This pilot episode sets the tone for the series. Unfortunately, many children nowadays are not aware of the reruns of the series. This particular episode has the family leaving the Big Woods and going into Kansas to build a little house on the prairie. I bought the DVD recently to show my class to illustrate the word "prairie." My inner city students did not have a clue what the prairie is. I showed them this episode over many days, and they have fallen in love with the Ingalls family and Mr. Edwards. The part of the show when Mr. Edwards comes for Christmas dinner to share gifts and food with the family is a beautiful part of this pilot. This type of programming, like Little House on the Prairie, is needed today and would be a welcome addition for family viewing.
