5.5 / 7.0

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.

Who Wrote The Little House

author & illustrator
Virginia Lee Burton

<p>Virginia Lee Burton (1909-1968) was the talented author and illustrator of some of the most enduring books ever written for children. The winner of the 1942 Caldecott Medal for THE LITTLE HOUSE, Burton’s books include heroes and happy endings, lively illustrations, and a dash of nostalgia. She lived with her two sons, Aristides and Michael, and her husband George Demetrios, the sculptor, in a section of Gloucester, Massachusetts, called Folly Cove. Here she taught a class in design and from it emerged the Folly Cove designers, a group of internationally known professional artisans. She is the author of many classic children’s picture books, including MIKE MULLIGAN AND HIS STEAM SHOVEL and KATY AND THE BIG SNOW.
