When I was finally old enough to realize books were awesome I become a veracious reader. I loved anything inspiring and I especially loved books about animals and how different cultures lived. The Little House on the Prairie® book series is one of my favorites and one of the first series of books that I read. I was fascinated with how the pioneers lived. Since I lived a good a portion of my childhood in off-grid places I saw the characters in the books as kindred spirits. I thought I would get along smashingly with the Ingalls kids and that Pa was just like my grandpa Frank since he also played the fiddle.
I’m happy to present you with this giveaway today! It’s the first giveaway I’ve done on Life From Scratch and I think it’s fitting. The Little House® books inspired generations of people, myself included, and represent the values that we also hold dear: family, community and a respectful relationship with the natural world.
This give-away was set up by the folks who just launched a new Little House on The Prairie® website for all things Laura Ingalls Wilder; you can visit the website HERE. You can also find them on Facebook, Pinterest and Twitter.
On the Little House on the Prairie® website you’ll find a wealth of resources. There are recipes, crafts, historical information and there’s a store where you can buy the books and TV series. They have a tutorial for making corn cob dolls, which my child self was obsessed enough with to actually make. I really loved this article about pioneer gardens. I love finding trees and rosebushes all by there lonesome because I know it means a homestead was there once. The pioneer garden article goes into detail about what pioneers grew and how they planned their gardens. I love that this website is going to introduce the Little House® books to a whole new generation of kids as well as be a fun place for all of us adult fans to visit.
What’s in this giveaway?!
If you’re the lucky duck who wins, you’ll get:
