Carrie and The Crazy Quilt
Carrie and The Crazy Quilt -- a nice little book about the Peshtigo Fire, of which there is very little historical fiction available. Not Newbery Honor material, but an exciting story that gave the girls a good sense of that event in our history.
And the best news! There are two sequels, Carrie and the Apple Pie and Carrie and Boarding House. Yay!
As you can see, we will be jumping around history a bit, but in the end we'll hopefully have a good picture of our state's history.
