Today I decided to combine my Throwback Thursday choice with a good choice to get Kids reading. My choice is the Little House On The Prairie Series by Laura Ingalls Wilder.
As a kid and young adult I loved the Little House on the Prairie books. I love the history of the places Laura and her family lived in and through each book I got a new understanding of the time period, the hardships, the fun, the family life, and faith. I just loved it all. My kids loved the books too and we even took are children when the were teens to visit some of the places that Laura talks about in the book. This series would be great to start with reading to children and then they can step up and read them for themselves as they get older. You can not go wrong including this series in your child's, or for that fact, your library.
Here are some sites that will give you more information on what museums and places to see related to Laura Ingalls Wilders life. I am sure there are more but these are the ones I know about.
