Laura Ingalls Wilder
Laura and her family travel across the unsettled frontier of the late-1800s north America in search of a “little house” to call home. Facing daunting obstacles such as scarlet fever and eviction from their land, their pioneering spirit and family bonds are tested, but never broken. This uplifting true-life story of one of America’s most beloved authors turns from page to stage in this musical journey.
COMMON CORE STANDARDS EASILY APPLIED IN YOUR CLASSROOM:
