Laura Ingalls Wilder Christmas

Hoover 2010 Me and Bonnet TreeThe Herbert Hoover Presidential Library and Museum always has three exhibits a year. A big one in the summer, a small one in the spring, and a Christmas tree exhibit for November and December that is always a different theme each year. In 2010, Hoover chose Laura Ingalls Wilder as a theme for their trees. I got to consult a little on the project and they borrowed some of my collection to exhibit. They also had been present a shorter version of my Laura Ingalls Wilder Christmas program which they recorded and posted on their YouTube Channel. Although it gives you a good idea of the kind of program I do any time of year, it’s especially nice to share it around Christmas. Since it was posted that year  it has been viewed 10,227 times  (as of Dec. 18) and is one of their most highly watched videos on their channel. Please post a comment or vote it Thumbs Up! Watch it for yourself:
