A pioneer adventure perfect for fans of Laura Ingalls Wilder’s Little House series!
On Libby Mitchell’s tenth birthday, she and her parents climb into a covered wagon and set off on a journey that takes them two months and a thousand miles. Their trip from Virginia to the deep woods of Michigan is hard, but it is exciting, too. And at its end lies their new home—a place that is rugged, wild, and full of promise.
History Stepping Stones now feature updated content that emphasizes Common Core and today’s renewed interest in nonfiction. Perfect for home, school, and library bookshelves!
This is a short chapter book that was used in a 3rd grade guided reading lesson. This story is about a family who moves from Virginia to Michigan because they bought a significant amount of land. Along the way they meet a Potawatomi family and the two young girls in each family become friends. The Potawatomi family helps Libby's family survive! This is an interesting story that would be a great addition to the Michigan classroom because it takes place in several cities in Michigan in the year 1837.read more
