Ma slaps a bear!I did a little research and it looks like the bears in Wisconsin are black bears, just like the ones I have in my suburb of Seattle. They leave you alone if you leave them alone. Imagine being alone overnight in a cabin in the woods…Continue

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.
