Plum Creek Chapter 36 - Prairie Winter

They continue to be my favorite series of books! 

Comment by Bec Fletcher on December 19, 2016 at 2:07pm

My husband and I read these books to our children last year. We loved them as much as the children and my husband, who had never read them as a child was amazed at the lives they lived. I am looking forward to delving into the amazing lives of pioneers and the little girls Laura and Mary who felt like my childhoods friends.
