Trivia

  • At the end of the show, Laura showed Mr. Sprague her new schoolbook that he donated, a McGuffey's Revised Third Reader. The Revised McGuffey did not come out until 1879, when the real Laura was 12 years old. Also, Laura had only learned to read the year before, so she wouldn't be using the Third Reader, which contains middle-school level readings.?
