Little House on the Prairie

If you are looking for a fun read-aloud, try Little House on the Prairie by Laura Ingalls Wilder. Right now you can read this title, along with the first in the series, Little House in the Big Woods, free through Amazon Kids+ (formerly FreeTime Unlimited). There is 1-month free trial for those who have never used it before. (Amazon Kids works similarly to Kindle Unlimited. If you are unfamiliar with Kindle Unlimited, you can read how we use Kindle Unlimited to see if it is a good fit for your family.)

We love the Little House series! Below you’ll find several resources we have pulled together throughout the years that go along with the series.

One of our favorites finds the family snowed in without supplies. Life is slowed down to the bare necessities of hunting for food, grinding wheat for bread in the coffee grinder, and twisting hay to make fuel for the fire. Check out The Long Winter — part of our 8 Winter Reading List Favorites!

Great time to snuggle in for a couple of favorites — Free!
