Seventy-five years ago, 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.
This sweet classic takes a look at how we and the world change over time and honors consistency and simplicity in a complicated universe. The illustrations are cheerful and the text is a delight to read aloud. I grew up reading this book with my parents, and now that I’m reading to kids of my own, I can’t imagine this not being a part of our library.
You bet it did. Check it out below!
