Wow, the month of February has really flown! How did you do with your LIW reading? I’m looking forward to hearing about it.
If you’ve read anything by, about, or related to Laura this month, please share it with us in the comments. You can share a link back to your book reviews, or if you’ve written a wrap-up post, you can link back to that (the latter might be preferable if you’ve written more than one review — the WordPress spam filter tends to send comments with more than one link to the spam folder. But I’ll try to keep a watch out for them.) We’d also love to hear if you’ve done any “Little House” related activities.
And, if you’ve participated this month and leave a comment on this post, you’re eligible for the drawing for a copy of The Little House Cookbook, compiled by Barbara M. Walker and illustrated by Garth Williams (the same illustrator for my set of Little House books). I’ll choose a name through random.org. a week from today to give everyone time to get their last books and posts finished. You’re eligible even if you don’t have a blog: just share with us in the comments what you read and a few of your thoughts about it. If you already have this book, I can substitute a similarly-priced Laura book of your choice. (Note: the drawing is closed and the winner is Susan!)
For myself, I read and enjoyed Farmer Boy this year (linked to my review), the story of Almanzo’s childhood. I’m already looking forward to getting back to Laura’s story next year and exploring a couple of other Laura-related books I just heard about this month.
Thank you all for participating! That’s what makes this challenge so fun. I’m looking forward to your thoughts on what you’ve read!
I read and reviewed the Little House Cookbook — very enjoyable. Thanks for hosting this; it made a dreary February more fun 😉
Thank you for hosting this! Here’s my LIW Challenge reviews: http://renee1-blog.blogspot.com/search/label/Laura%20Ingalls%20Wilder%20Reading%20Challenge%202014
I re-read Little House in the Big Woods as well as Little House on the Prairie. Thank you so much for hosting this Challenge! I have written a blog post about it, which includes the very similar experience of my great-grandfather who settled about 100 miles north of the Ingalls family around the same time.
Here’s a link to a book review I wrote this month. Although the book wasn’t specifically about Laura, it’s a fictionalized story of her ancestors. It’s written in the same style as the Little House books… just beautiful and perfect for children!
Also, I read a book from Thomas Tedrow’s fictionalized series about Laura’s adult years. This review is available on Goodreads: https://www.goodreads.com/review/show/846600963
I’m coming! I’m coming!
We have a handful of chapters left on our read and then I will be writing my review up and linking!
I didn’t read a book this time, but I wanted to share my post about our trip to Mansfield, MO, where Laura and Almanzo lived out their lives. http://www.hopeisthewordblog.com/2013/07/11/little-house-big-trip/
