The end of 2015 and the beginning of a "Wilder" 2016!!
I love this graphic Bex created! (She's the talented one!) :)
probably as soon as I discovered them!
How I ever missed them as a child I will never know...but...
that doesn't mean I can't read them now!
And...so can you! Along with Bex and me!
In addition, I will count these toward my Historical Fiction reads!
Pioneer Girl by Laura Ingalls Wilder, Pamela Smith Hill
The Albert book, A Wilder Rose, is a well-researched accounting of the literary partnership between Laura and her daughter, Rose. Although they co-wrote this series, they did not make others aware of the collaboration--everyone thought Laura was the sole author.(And yes, this is the same Susan Wittig Albert who writes three series: China Bayles, The Darling Dahlias, and The Cottage Tales of Beatrix Potter.)
Pioneer Girl is an annotated autobiography and is a bit of a chunkster at 400 pages.
Please feel free to commit to the whole read-along or you can read only certain books, or jump in and out as you please during the year. We do ask that you use the link below (Crossing my fingers that it will work!) to connect directly to an introductory posting or page on your blog specifically for the Little House Read-Along, and please feel free to use Bex's beautiful graphic on these postings! If you do not have a blog, do not despair! You can still easily participate! There will be introductory posts at the beginning of each month with a link to connect to your review, which could be posted on Goodreads or another similar forum. Or...if you simply wish to participate by commenting, that certainly works, too!
Sharing is the goal!
You can follow along each month on my Little House Read-Along 2016 page
as all postings will be linked there.
Additionally, Emily of The Bookshelf of Emily J is a huge fan of Laura Ingalls Wilder and this past spring she visited the Laura Ingalls Wilder house and museum in Mansfield, Missouri.
I love the pictures and her descriptions of this experience in the posting.
(I will link to some of her postings as we progress...)
Have you read any or all of these books before? Or will this be a reread?
It's my first time and I cannot wait! Bex and I are both beyond excited!
