The Little House: A Caldecott Award Winner
*Goodreads Rating 4.3*
Author: Virginia Lee Burton
The Little House was happy to spend her days atop a hill way out in the country where she could watch the seasons slowly pass by. But over time the city grows closer and closer until the country where the Little House is, is no longer the country but right in the heart of the city.
In the city everything moves fast and grows up to the sky, until Little House can't see the sun or the moon anymore and nobody cares about the house and it starts to become run down. . . until one day when someone takes notice of the house and does something about it!
The little house first stood in the country, but gradually the city moved closer and closer...
In 1942, Virginia Lee Burton created The Little House, and since then generations of readers have been enchanted by the story of this happy home and her journey from the pleasures of nature to the bustling city, and back again.
