Little House in the Big Woods Book Club Focused on Making Inferences & Drawing Conclusions

Laura Ingalls Wilder's classic story, Little House in the Big Woods, is a favorite of boys and girls alike, and the first in the Little House on the Prairie series.

Ma must harvest the garden, churn butter, and make maple sugar. The family makes the best of every tough situation and grow in love in their log cabin where every night, safe and warm, the sound of Pa's fiddle lulls Laura and her sisters to sleep.
