Summer Reading Program

This year is the 150th anniversary of the birth of Laura Ingalls Wilder, and our celebration continues! Join us this summer in reading through the beautiful books that Laura wrote.

We'll be sending out helpful information and fun ideas related to the books and offering opportunities to win prizes. Join the special email list or the Facebook group to make sure you don't miss anything!

The only rule for this summer reading program is there are no rules. Don't think you can mange all eight Little House books? No worries! Read one, two, three, four . . . this is summer, and this is no-pressure fun!

Your child can read the books independently, or you can read them together as family. Again, whatever works for you.

We have a reading chart to help you keep track of your progress. We also have a "My Favorite Things" page that you can print off for each book you read. Your child can describe a memorable character and memorable story and draw an illustration related to the book.
