Bless All the Dear Children is NBC's Christmas-themed TV movie adaptation of the book series Little House on the Prairie. Marked as the fourth and final Christmas episode of the network's developed-for-television drama, it was premiered on December 17, 1984.


Two-year-old Rose Wilder is kidnapped when she, Laura, Almanzo, and Mr. Edwards are doing some Christmas shopping in Mankato. As the adults go on a frantic search for her, someone unexpectedly comes into their midst. Back in Walnut Grove, Nels has a plan to teach his greedy daughter, Nancy, some important lessons about the true meaning of the season and the Carters, who can't afford presents for their two children, have a rough Christmas ahead of them.
