A Little House and a family legacy
So many things came together for today’s blog–
It’s National Family Literacy Month.
My parents are retired educators and read the Little House on the Prairie books to their students AND their children, thereby practicing family literacy and passing that love and priority onto their kids, as well as their students and the families of those same students.
I interviewed Mom and Dad to talk about this legacy and for a special treat–Dad read a Thanksgiving excerpt from the series!
Listen to his reading and our interview, right here–
Thanks for listening and Happy Thanksgiving!

Enjoyed listening to this. So many memories of Uncle Jim, Aunt Esther, Aaron, and you, Laura! I remember staying with your family one time. I’m not sure where my parents were. But, your mom bought me the Rabbit Hill by Robert Lawson that time. Happy Thanksgiving. Thank you for the memories.
Thanks for listening, Kimberly! We sure do have a lot of memories going back and forth–visits to you all are huge and happy part of my childhood memories. <3
Hey Laura. I really enjoyed listening to this reading & even the interview. You know-the one I said I didn’t want to listen to???
Ha! Yes, after reading all three comments from you ;), I think you enjoyed it? . . . Thanks for being a part of Laura’s Voice!
I tapped “add comment” before proofreading. I DID want to listen to the interview, I just want to be interviewed. I was nervous about that but it worked out ok.
I can’t believe I didn’t proofread a second time. I did not want to be interviewed but I wanted to listen to you interview your dad. I was glad you asked Jim to read these Thanksgiving excerpts and the interview. These are good books. Thank you for giving them a place on your Thanksgiving blog.
