Prairie Child: 1848


DVD length: 15 minutes

The story of a fictional family living in Wisconsin in 1848, the year Wisconsin became a state. Ten-year-old Sarah is the focus of the story, which is narrated by her mother and includes songs popular in the 1840s. There's lots of work to be done, but there's time to play with handmade wooden dolls and other simple toys like Jacob's ladder, cup-and-ball, jump ropes, tops, and marbles. Based on a wide variety of literary and historic sources.
