Ya’ll, I can’t seem to escape Little House. Is this some kind of disorder or syndrome?!
After our year of Little House in 2013/2014, I honestly thought we were done with it.
We’d read the series twice start to finish (once when the kids were 6-8; once when they were 8-10), and even voyaged in crazy road trip fashion to see with our own eyes where the Ingalls lived and worked.
But then Christmas happened–and I read this book aloud. One of the kids, who tends to be my more reluctant reader, got all into it: giggling at the funny parts, engaging with thoughtful questions. This same child? Loves to cook.
So in my “inspire, not require” brain, a plan began to brew:
There’s a lot of good food in Little House. A lot of good life lessons, too. Why not cook our way through Little House in the Big Woods?
So we did. I’m here to invite you to do the same, and make it really easy for you, too!
