I am going to admit something here…
It may be such a shock you might have to sit down.
I, a homeschooling mother of four…
I have never read all the Little House on the Prairie Books!
Tis’ true, tis’ true.
I began reading the set to the children sometime last year and have been in total love with them ever since. I am so sad that I didn’t read them as a young girl because, they are incredible.
I LOVE every minute of our time reading together.
One consolation of not having read them myself is that, I am equally excited to see what is going to happen next and when I get the,
“Please Moma, one more chapter…” it is soooo easy to say “YES!”
We are coming to the close of The Long Winter and it is all to appropriate being that this has been the coldest winter we have had in a very long while. So during our days of schooling I spend time curled up with my four beloveds and we embark on Laura’s journey where days are full of blizzards, brown bread and potatoes with salt.
Today I had an idea to engage my children.
As soon as we finished reading today’s chapters, the children and I set out to making our own
I own a copy of The Little House Cookbook and it is filled with recipes just like Ma Ingalls made.

… and yes, NOW, I have read the books and love each and every one! 🙂
Love it! I also homeschool and have never read the little house series…but this Christmas we got the entire series of videos…and we watch them all together. I love them. We have fallen in love with them. My girls keep asking me when we get to live on a farm and be like the ingalls…..I am going to go out and get that cook book. thank you.
That's kinda funny because, we just checked that Little House On The prairie cook book out of the library today.

You are not alone, I did not get to read the books as a girl and I am reading through them now. I am in the book right after "The Long Winter" and I have loved reading them as well. I think it is exciting that you are being able to read them with your children. What a blessing that is!
What a fun mom you are! I'm currently reading Little House on the Prairie to my younger kids and they're on the edge of their seats. I am too but I've read it before. :o) Keep enjoying those treasured moments!

One of my favorites, too.
I would love to have the Little House Cookbook! 🙂 And I'm writing down your cinnamon roll recipe. I think my kids will love them!! Hope you're doing well.
