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!

I loved this book as a child and the illustrations are the same as I remember them but readin this as an ebook was rather frustrating because you kept reading the same page over and over as the perspective changed to give a different view of the page.

Beautiful story. Talks about life in the country and how cities are built.

The Little House: Her Story. An interesting look at time from her point of view, describes the seasons and years much in the way a house might. Simply gentle.

Parts of the story reminded me of "A Contract With God: Life on Dropsie Avenue." A very sweet story.
