I enjoy watching movies and TV Series based on books. I believe the characters have more depth and the plots more developed when books drive the creative process of screen play creations.
My featured YouTube Video series for COVID-19 2020 Summer is “Laura’s Prairie Summer”. It is free for a little while and I hope you take the time to check out the series from the banks of Plum Creek.
This series is is straight from Walnut Grove, Minnesota and features people from all over the US that have studied or read the Laura Ingalls Wilder Books and one interview in the series was from one of the actresses that started in the “Little House on the Prairie” TV Series. The play scenes include actors from the community.
I hope I have all the links correct but if in doubt just search YouTube for Laura’s Prairie Summer and all the videos will come up for you.
It’s a well done series by local people in Western Minnesota in a small town where farming is the main source of income so anything you can contribute toward the efforts to keep the Laura Ingalls Wilder museum going along with the theater group will be appreciated.
The shows are for the whole family with new scenes included – every year the community puts on a pageant with an outdoor play that is very well done. Tune in and let the kids see entertainment for the whole family. Stay safe everyone.
Hallmark Channel announced today there will be a season 2 for “When Calls The Heart”
I’m so glad. The show has a heartfelt message of redemption, importance of education, surviving tragedy and how a town works together. The series is based on Janette Oke’s writing see link below for details:

I’m thankful for all the original series and movies Hallmark Channel is producing last year and this one especially with Cedar Cove, When Calls the Heart and Signed Sealed Delivered. I hope you tune in and join the Fans – me included – in supporting Hallmark’s efforts to put Heart into TV viewing.
