Little House Read-Along!

If ever there was a challenge/read-along tailor made for me, it is this one. I reread this series every single year starting in the winter- now I just get to read them with other people! I have loved these books since I was a little girl, although I never really watched the television show. Bit of trivia here - Melissa Gilbert, who played Laura on the show, lives an hour from me and is running for Congress.

 I have already started reading Little House in the Big Woods out loud to Wyatt and one day I hope to visit some of the locations in these books as a family. 

The Details:  This read-along is hosted by Bex at An Armchair by the Sea and Lynn at Smoke and Mirrors

The reading schedule is as follows:

January - Little House in the Big Woods
February - Little House on the Prairie
March - Farmer Boy
April - On the Banks of Plum Creek
May - By the Shores of Silver Lake
June - The Long Winter
July - Little Town on the Prairie 
August - These Happy Golden Years
September - The First Four Years
October - On the Way Home
November - West from Home 
December - Pioneer Girl/ A Wilder Rose by Susan Wittig Albert (we are going to read one each of these and then both if we have time. You are welcome to choose either one or any other book related to Laura Ingalls Wilder)

I am really looking forward to this challenge! Bex mentioned on her blog post that the website has recipes from the books - I may have to try a few. I see molasses cookies or brown bread in my future.. 


  1. This challenge sounds fun. I never read this series but one of my favorite knitting designers - Susan B. Anderson who designs the cutest baby hats and toys - designed a shawl inspired by this series. I need to finish mine this year. I will search for an audiobook to be my knitting accompaniment.

    1. That sounds like a great idea, Stefanie!

    2. That is a great idea! I would do it too, if I could figure out this knitting thing. :) Maybe 2016 is my year! Lol.

  2. So great to have you along, Erin! I love your blog name, BTW! :)

    1. Thank you! I am looking forward to the read along!


I love hearing from people, don't be shy! I would love to hear what you think! I always reply back, although it takes me a bit longer these days due to the little guy.
