This was my all time favorite book as a very young child! The pictures and words are beautifully interwoven and initially depict the natural cycles that the "little house" watches every day. Later, the little house observes the inevitable march of "progress" from horse and buggy to automobiles, fields and forest to subdivisions and pavement, from the well-tended family home on a large tract of land to city high rises... One of the best parts is, there is a happy ending to this book... The Little House by Virginia Lee Burton truly illustrates the power of one book and I think it greatly affected my formative years. Lessons from the book have even followed me into adulthood. I became involved in preserving open space for a major land trust organization possibly partly precipitated by the potential consequences clearly and lovingly sketched in this book. I volunteered to read this book to a first grade class and explained to the children how lucky they were to still be living in the "country." Later, as part of the lesson, the teacher asked the students to illustrate a picture of their own house in the country. If you have not yet done so, please read this Caldecott Medal Winner from 1943 and share it with someone you love...
