The Laura Ingalls Wilder Companion

Can I give all of the stars to this Little House books companion guide? Reading Laura Ingalls Wilder made me the reader/writer that I am today. I’ve homeschooled my kids using these books and various guides that didn’t work for us in any cohesive way because they were either religious or too babyish. This companion book is just right. The history and background of the events opened up for discussion in a natural, non forced way are rare in homeschool materials. The activities are fun and work. I wish I had this available back in the day. At least its here now, and I’m giddy with mixing it into our American History studies this year! Now that just about everyone is homeschooling, this book should be a big hit. You can even get it in time for the new school year- August 4, 2020
