Little House, The

by Virginia Lee Burton


Quick Overview

The little house first stood in the country, but gradually the city moved closer and closer. "This engaging picture book clearly presents a wealth of information".--Booklist. Caldecott Medal winner.



Virginia Lee Burton won the Caldecott Medal in 1943 for her memorable picture book "The Little House," a poignant story of a cute country cottage that becomes engulfed by the city that grows up around it. The house has an expressive face of windows and doors, and even the feelings of a person, so she's sad when she's surrounded by the dirty, noisy city's hustle and bustle: "She missed the field of daisies / and the apple trees dancing in the moonlight." Fortunately, there's a happy ending, as the house is taken back to the country where she belongs. A classic! Size 0.19" H x 8.94" L x 9.54" W, 40 pages
