It seems like as long as I can remember I wanted to learn more about Laura Ingalls Wilder. I wanted to know the facts of her life, what she wore, what she ate, how she cooked, what her work was like, etc. As I got older I also wanted to share that knowledge with people and that’s how Trundlebed Tales began. It didn’t have a name yet when I put together my very first Laura Ingalls Wilder program for 4H while I was in the 4th grade. From there it has snowballed into programs, articles, essays, videos, a podcast, and all over social media.
While I hope that you will stay and learn more about Trundlebed Tales and explore our presentations, blog posts, videos and podcasts, I know a lot of people like me are just looking for more about Laura Ingalls Wilder and Laura Ingalls Wilder event information from around the country. Find those at the links below.
Also, check out our pathfinders (paper printable collections of resources to get you started) and LibGuides (the brand name of a fancy online version that does the same thing, but doesn’t print as nicely):
- Laura Ingalls Wilder/Rose Wilder Lane LibGuide
- Laura Ingalls Wilder Elementary or Basic Pathfinder
- Laura Ingalls Wilder Adult or Advanced Pathfinder
- Rose Wilder Lane Pathfinder
