The little house first stood in the country, but gradually the city moved closer and closer.

Review:

"This engaging picture book clearly presents a wealth of information." Booklist

Synopsis:

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 shes sad when shes surrounded by the dirty, noisy citys hustle and bustle: “She missed the field of daisies / and the apple trees dancing in the moonlight.” Fortunately, theres a happy ending, as the house is taken back to the country where she belongs. A classic!

Robert Zupperoli, January 29, 2009 (view all comments by Robert Zupperoli)
This is an excellent story that can be used in grades one through three for lessons on neighborhood, community and social studies. The Little House is a classic in children's literature, the story is beautifully told and has luminous illustrations. It was a Caldecott Winner. It has been and remains among my favorites. I use it year after year in the classroom, it never looses its relevance. The story of a house withstanding urban sprawl was recently played out in real time in Seattle (Oct/Nov '08). This is also a story about growth, change, and loyalty. Enjoy this book!
