Old Town in the Green Groves

Cynthia Rylant

Based on Laura Ingalls Wilder’s unpublished memoirs, Old Town in the Green Groves continues the classic American pioneer saga from the award-winning Little House series. This middle grade novel is an excellent choice for tween readers in grades 5 to 6, especially during homeschooling. It’s a fun way to keep your child entertained and engaged while not in the classroom.

For the first time since they left the Big Woods of Wisconsin, the Ingalls family is halted in their westward trek when Pa is forced to find work in a hotel in Burr Oak, Iowa. If they can save enough money, they'll continue searching for a new place to call home.
