Homeschool must see: Little House on the Prarie, the Musical

I recently found out that Little House on the Prairie had been revived as a musical starring Melissa Gilbert as Ma.

If your daughter (or even son) is anything like mine, she has read every little house book written. Mine read not only the Laura Ingalls series, but the fictional prequels and sequels (not written by Laura Ingals Wilder). She knows the story from the Great, Great, Grandmother down to Laura's daughter.

If you follow a classical approach as we do (very loosely) then this story is well suited for anyone studying the the late classical to early modern time period.

Pair the studying of these novels with enjoying the musical and you have enriched the historical experience for your child.

You don't have to be a homeschooler studying a specific time period to enjoy the play though.

Little House is playing all over the country and may be coming to a town near you very soon.

If you are reading the books and/or plan to the show, you should make use of the STUDY GUIDE
