Item description for The Little House (Learning Language Arts Through Literature) by Virginia Lee Burton...

A country house is unhappy when the city, with all its buildings and traffic, grows up around her.

Publishers Description
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

Reviews - What do customers think about The Little House?

Sweet remiscence of small-town America  May 8, 2008
This was one of my favorites as kid. Then, sadly, I forgot about it until stumbling across it in the school library. It is once again one of my favorites. Cynics might roll their eyes at this tribute to good ol' days gone by, but I personally appreciate the nostalgia and the house with its subtle face parts is adorable. You feel so bad for the cute little house! It is also an observation at the change of time. I don't know how intense that is as a theme, but I found it touching and Burton tells the tale with such heart and care.
