The Little House Series

Boys and girls should spend a good chunk of their middle school years with Laura Ingalls Wilder and her Little House Books.  There is no better picture of pioneer life than what Mrs. Wilder pens in her delightful books and although it may be a bit tough for your kids to listen to at first, before you know it they'll be hooked too.

Start by reading a few paragraphs at a time. Don't get hung up in getting a chapter a day done.  Just enjoy the journey.  Use the Prairie Primer to bring in some activities to go along with what you're reading and you've got yourself a full blown unit study going.  It's great!
