The Long Winter Discussion Questions

The polar vortex is causing bitter cold temperatures throughout much of the United States. It reminds a lot of people of Laura Ingalls Wilder's book called The Long Winter. 
So my next author newsletter will include a discussion guide to The Long Winter. If you've never read it or want to read it again, this is a great opportunity!

In addition to the the discussion questions, you might learn a couple of things you didn't know about the book. If you are interested, please sign up for the newsletter HERE. The guide will be in next week's newsletter!

Edited: These questions (and so much more) are now available in The Laura Ingalls Wilder Companion: A Chapter-by-Chapter Guide (Chicago Review Press, 2020)! 

Happy Trails!

  1. I am getting ready to read The Long Winter with my 10 year old niece. Is it possible to get a copy of the discussion guide to The Long Winter that you mention above?

  2. I am a third grade teacher and am starting The Long Winter next week for the first time with my students. Could I also get a copy of the newsletter? Thanks so much!!!
