This week, we discuss all things Little House! We start with our snack review and dive into the history of maple sugar candy. Why was it popular during the Pioneer Days? When did we switch from maple sugar to white sugar? If you'd like to know more than we covered on the show, click HERE!
Then, in our "Fun Facts" section, we talk about the history of the Little House books and how these slower, gentler stories were adapted into one of the longest-running, dramatic television series of all time! If you'd like to read the series, you can find that HERE. Megan also talks about Pioneer Girl, Laura's original biography. It's been restored and annotated, and you can buy it HERE.
We watched three episodes throughout the run of Little House:
You can stream the entire series HERE on Amazon FreeVee

Each week, we'll post the links to the shows and films we watched, so you can "play along at home."
