  • Trivia

    • In the show, Laura wants to be a teacher as a way to impress Almanzo and show that she is more grown-up, and before she met Almanzo, she wanted to do it to emulate her older sister Mary. However, the real Laura Ingalls Wilder started teaching so she could contribute financially and help keep Mary enrolled at her blind school, who never married and became a teacher like she did in the television series. This was all detailed in Laura's seventh book Little Town on the Prairie.
