"I Remember Laura" June Blog-A-Thon

For the month of June I will be participating in a once-a-week blog-a-thon celebrating Laura Ingalls Wilder hosted by Miss Sandy at Quill Cottage. I have enjoyed the Little House books since I was very young. Before I could read my mother read them to us as bedtime stories, one chapter a night. I couldn't stand having to wait until the next night to hear the next chapter. It was a huge goal incentive to me to learn to read. I read the whole series the summer between 1st and 2nd grade. I was 7! And I have read them many times since. There is something about Laura Ingalls Wilder's writing style that still appeals to me. I have visited several of Laura's homes, so perhaps I'll get to share about that as well.

If anyone else is interested in joining in, here is the announcement from Miss Sandy: Over the four weeks of June, every Monday will be "I Remember Laura" day of the Laura Ingalls Wilder blog-a-thon. Each week has a theme in which a passage from one of Laura's books will be featured. You can share and participate by posting on that theme on your blog and linking up to my main post using Mr. Linky.

I actually never read one of the books, but I was such a fan of the TV show...
