Little House in the Big Woods Book Discussion

Author Cindy Wilson and I led a discussion about Laura Ingalls Wilder's popular book, The Long Winter during the month of March. Participants asked for more book Little House discussions! We are happy to provide these for eager readers. Our next discussion will focus on Little House in the Big Woods presented by the Laura Ingalls Wilder Museum in Pepin, Wisconsin
Please note: If you are reading this blog post in an email, you may not be able to see all images or click on links unless you go to the blog by clicking the title of today's blog post. 

Our family-friendly book discussion of Little House in the Big Woods will spotlight the history as well as the book. All are welcome to attend! If you're able, read the book before the event, but attend even if you haven't read the book recently. 
Cindy Wilson is the author of The Beautiful Snow (Beaver's Pond Press, 2020) which examines pioneers' lives during the long winter of 1880-1881. I highly recommend her book about the pioneers, railroads, and newspapers. It's an in-depth examination of the truth behind The Long Winter.

I am the author of The Laura Ingalls Wilder Companion: A Chapter-by-Chapter Guide (Chicago Review Press, 2020). This children's book (though adults love it, too) explores all nine of the Little House books. It provides brief introductions, chapter-by-chapter story guides, and additional information related to each of the books’ content and history. It also includes 75 activities to help readers live like Laura and Almanzo. 

We thank the Laura Ingalls Wilder Museum for hosting this Little House book discussion! 

We'll use our knowledge from our research as well as our recent readings of Little House in the Big Woods to facilitate a family-friendly group discussion. Please join us and invite a friend!
