Little House Read-Along for May: By the Shores of Silver Lake

Come on along and join the fun!
(Twitter--#littlehouseRAL)
Bex of An Armchair by the Sea and I are cohosting a Little House Read-Along. 
I cannot adequately describe just how excited I am by this project!
And this is the first time I have ventured into the "hosting" role for a Read-Along!
You can link directly to an introductory posting or page on your blog here!

We will read one book of this series each month, ending with your choice of one, or both, the annotated autobiography and Albert's book about 
the collaboration between Laura and her daughter, Rose.

  1. I've read the first 7 aloud I don't know how many times but I never tired of them. My husband brought a boxed set back from the USA when he was there for work when my eldest child was about 5 years old. Certainly got our money's worth although they're a bit dilapidated now.

    1. Awwww...what a heartwarming story and what a wonderful experience for your children! And of course they're dilapidated! That proves they were well enjoyed. How neat that your husband did that! This was one set of books I didn't think of for my own children. Not sure why...I guess they just weren't on my radar from my own childhood.
