On the Banks of Plum Creek Lit Study


By completing this registration for a Laura Ingalls Wilder Lit Study at Hills of Milk and Honey, you are signing up your child to participate in the On the Banks of Plum Creek virtual lit study and on farm book discussion and workshop day.

The adventures of Laura Ingalls and her family continue as they leave their little house on the prairie and travel in their covered wagon to Minnesota. They settle into a house made of sod on the banks of beautiful Plum Creek. Soon Pa builds them a sturdier house, with real glass windows and a hinged door. Laura and Mary go to school, help with the chores around the house, and fish in the creek. Pa’s fiddle lulls them all to sleep at the end of the day. But then disaster strikes—on top of a terrible blizzard, a grasshopper infestation devours their wheat crop. Now the family must work harder than ever to overcome these challenges.

[Workshop theme: Harmful and beneficial insect study, including beekeeping (no direct contact with bees).]

Registration deadline: March 29, 2019

Virtual lit study start date: Reading assignment/activities posted Mondays, beginning April 8, 2019

On farm book discussion and workshop date: Sunday, May 5, 2019 from 1-6 PM (NOTE: this is a Sunday, not a Saturday like the rest of the workshops in this series.)

Please be sure to double check for accuracy prior to submitting the registration.

(If you prefer to save 10% by signing up for all nine lit studies in advance, your child will receive a free t-shirt and water bottle at the first workshop and a boxed set of all nine books will be shipped to you instead of receiving the books one at a time throughout the year.
