The Laura Ingalls Wilder Reading Challenge 2013

Laura Ingalls Wilder Reading Challenge

Welcome to this year’s Laura Ingalls Wilder Reading Challenge! Since February is the month of her birth and her death, it seemed a good time to read anything related to her. Any of the Little House books are fine, but if you’d like to read something other than those, I listed a few books related to Laura Ingalls Wilder here, and of course I’m sure there are several biographies and such that I don’t know about.

Let us know in the comments below what you’re planning to read pertaining to Laura this month, and at the end of the month I’ll have another post where we can share how we’ve done and what we’ve thought about what we read. You can join in at any time during the month and you don’t have to have a blog to participate. And there just may be a prize of some kind for those participating.

If you do anything else Laura-related, we’d love to hear about that, too: last year Bekah tried some prairie-type crafts, foods, and activities, and a while back Annette hosted a Little House-themed birthday party for her daughter.

For myself, I plan to read:

West From Home, Laura’s letters back to Almanzo when she went to visit her daughter and the World’s Fair in San Francisco.

Let the Hurricane Roar by Rose Wilder Lane, Laura’s daughter, about her grandparents early years on the prairie, written before the Little House books.

Farmer Boy by Laura Ingalls Wilder.

If I have time before the end of the month, I may go on in the Little House books. But it’s a short month, so we’ll see!

I got the Little House cookbook last year, so I may try some dishes from that as well.

Happy reading!

  1. I want to participate again this year! Having just returned home last week, I’m still in “settling back in” mode, but hopefully I can figure out what I want to read this weekend. I know I want to continue reading the Little House series, since I’ve never read the entire series.

  2. I searched around for a book to participate with this year, but nothing struck my fancy. But maybe an activity would be fun! I’ve always wanted to try making vanity cakes…
