A favorite of little girls for generations, The Little House books make an excellent unit study. While I believe they are best enjoyed by eight year olds with a flashlight under the bedsheet, greeting them at the homeschool table with lesson plans is a nice surprise for a change-up in the usual studies.
Here are some accessories to consider incorporating:
Invite friends over for a Little House themed party, including bonnets and prairie-style vittles. Make butter to serve on homemade sourdough bread. Embroider a small, basic flower. End with an episode of Michael Landon's Little House on the Prairie sitcom.
Grandparents gave this beautiful edition to the girls and it is a favorite. It is larger than their laps and is a delight to read. For just a little more, you can own the complete set of paperbacks, so it's not for everyone. But it really is a treat if you have a Little House fan in your house.
There is another set that includes just 5 books and it runs $10 cheaper, but this set takes you through all of the Little House series.
On the Way Home
Not everyone knows about this one. It is a diary that Laura kept during her journey from South Dakota to Missouri in 1894. The Wilder family included their daughter Rose at this point in their journey. It isn't written like the novels, but is an actual diary. Though different, it is quite interesting.
A Little Prairie House (My First Little House Books (Prebound))
These are cute introductions for younger children still in the reader stage. There are several of these books. They fit nicely for families that are doing the Little House books as a read aloud. Younger children can enjoy these on their own to enrich their reading time.
A biography of the life of Laura that draws from her personal, unpublished memoirs. For readers who want even more detail than this biography offers, look at Becoming Laura Ingalls Wilder.
The movie that premiered the sitcom. This isn't for everyone. I grew up on it and knew Michael Landon as Pa before I ever read the series. If I had read the books first, this series might have been a huge disappointment. It really isn't like the books, but it is still a huge part of my childhood memories and I can't think of "Little House" without thinking of this movie.
