Forgotten Love of Reading!

In todays world, everything has turned to technology. Xboxs, ipods, iPads, cell phones, computers, and the list goes on!

My little boy would rather play games instead of read. So I decided since he didn’t want to read on his own, I would continue to read to him. It is an every day affair in our house. Some days when we get busy and I have forgotten about our reading session he reminds me about it. 

We have had a very hard time finding books that draw his attention. Boys will be boys!! 

But let me tell you… No mater if you have a little boy or a little girl… You can not go wrong reading the Little House on the Prairie books.

Since we are still in school, we have started with the first one of Laura Ingalls Wilder books.

My little boy can’t get enough of it. He loves hearing the story! We talk about how times were different back then compared to now.

By the time we finish reading this book, it will be summer time. So we will be having lots of fun doing lots of activities relating to the books. The next book on the list is: Farmer Boy. Then the main book: Little House on the Prairie.

My list keeps getting longer of the activities we will be doing! Which Pinterest is not helping in the matter! ๐Ÿ˜

We will be learning how to make:

  • Homemade butter
  • Homemade Bread
  • Learning basic sewing
  • Tin Lanterns
  • Pancake men
  • Donuts
  • Learning to milk a Cow and Goat
  • Homemade Candles
  • Molasses Candy
  • Learning how to wash laundry with out a washing machine.

And everyday something is added to the list! Not only are we going to read but we are going to have a blast with the activities.

Have you read the Little House on the Prairie books to your kids?

Did you do all kinds of fun activities with them?

How did you compare Laura’s life with you own?

Until next time,

Hold the little ones close,

And read them a book!
