Little House

I have mentioned more than once on here that we have enjoyed, and continue to enjoy, working through the Little House on the Prairie books. I could not remember the next book in the series so I searched for it and came across this site that has some great resources to use alongside the books.

This site has information on Laura Ingalls Wilder as well as fun ideas for games, recipes, and quizzes about the books.

And, so I don't need to go searching for it again, the order of the books is as follows:

Little House Books by Laura Ingalls Wilder:
Little House in the Big Woods
Farmer Boy
Little House on the Prairie
On the Banks of Plum Creek
By the Shores of Silver Lake
Little Town on the Prairie
The Long Winter
These Happy Golden Years
The First Four Years

Other Writing by Laura Ingalls Wilder:
On the Way Home
West from Home
A Little House Traveler
A Little House Christmas Treasury

Little House on Audio:
Little House in the Big Woods
Farmer Boy
Little House on the Prairie
On the Banks of Plum Creek

Other Writing about Laura Ingalls Wilder:
Laura Ingalls Wilder: A Biography
Pioneer Girl: The Story of Laura Ingalls Wilder

There aren't links here, but I have found audio recordings of all of the Little House books at our library, in case you are interested in looking that direction.

I also came across a blog with quite a bit of information on these and other books about the Ingalls-Wilder families including books about the grandmother and great-grandmother (which are actually written by that blog's owner . . .)

Always more information out there than I could ever hope to process or take advantage of, but I love finding more tidbits to flavor the stew that has become our homeschool experience.

I LOVED reading the Little House Books when I was a young girl and couldn't wait to read them with Chelsea. I got a Unit study guide called The Prairie Primer and we spent a whole year going through all of the books. We actually lived close enough to go and tour one of Laura Ingalls Wilder's homes and museum in Mansfield Missouri, and Chelsea knew as much or more about her then the tour guides! I look forward to when this next baby is old enough so I can read them all again.

I have heard of that Prairie primer, but never got my hands on one. Thanks for reminding me of it!
