Little House on the Prairie display impresses fan of the books

On Sunday, April 7, the opening for the Little House on the Prairie exhibition took place at the Alfred Langevin Cultural Hall in Huntingdon.

I was really excited to go because my dad, Derek Vine, has been reading me the books for over a year, and I got to see what it might have looked like because there were two big models of shops and houses from Walnut Grove. My grandma, Wanda Vine, read the books to my dad when he was young also.

The models were not really like how I imagined from reading the books, but they have made me think differently about the books. I knew what to expect, but I was still surprised by how detailed the buildings were.

I went to the opening dressed as Laura Ingalls, the main girl from all the books. I like reading about how they lived back then. It was very different from how we live now. Now that I have seen the models, I want to watch the TV show because I want to see what is different.

I got to meet the artist, Marc Walsh. He was really happy, and he asked if we could take a photo. I signed the guest book and said thank you.
