    1. One of the classics. And there's a good reason this book has been around for 70 years.Upsides: A sweet story. Wonderful marriage of illustration and text working in concert. A guest cameo from Mike Mulligan and his Steam shovel if you're paying close enough attention. Downsides: Your kids might wonder why the hell you are crying your eyes out when the main character of the story is a house.Well worth your time.

    2. Rilla isn't sure she likes the look of Virginia Lee Burton's The Little House. "Hmm." She eyes it skeptically. "It doesn't really look Intresting.""I think you'll like it," I say. "It's about a big city growing up around this little pink house."Pink is the key word in that sentence. She'll give almost anything a chance, if there's pink involved."Hot pink," she murmurs approvingly, studying the cover. There is no higher praise."Let's give it a try," I suggest. "We can read something else afterwar [...]

    3. 5★An all-time favourite children’s picture book that’s as old as I am (old) and as pertinent today as ever. I just saw a review of this and HAD to add it to my list. I’ve loved it forever. I know we were given a copy when our kids were little, so I’ve used that as a date, but who cares?Upshot: cute little country farmhouse is gradually swallowed up by 'progress', which is still happening. You can see a picture of the original Little House on the book cover.The Little HouseThe city move [...]

    4. I loved this children's book about a pretty little house out in the country. The house enjoys trees and flowers and seeing the seasons change. But soon a road is built in front of the house, and more cars come through, and tall buildings crowd around the house. The house is sad being in the city, and it misses seeing the sun and the trees. In the end, the house is rescued and moved back out to the country, where it's happy again.Virginia Lee Burton also wrote "Mike Mulligan and His Steam Shovel, [...]

    5. I have been going through some books from my childhood and I have stumbled upon this great gem called “The Little House.” “The Little House” is a Caldecott Medal award winning book by Virginia Lee Burton and it is about how a small house learns the true meaning of “There’s no place like home” when a growing civilization is built around it over the years. “The Little House” is definitely a gem that you cannot afford to miss!When I first read this book when I was little, I though [...]

    6. Extremely cute book! I really enjoyed it :) It really shows how you shouldn't take your life for granted because one day it could completely change.

    7. This is a classic example of a carefully, meaningfully politicized picture book. The little house, sturdily built during a simpler age, loves her life in the country but harbors a strong curiosity of what it might be like to live in the city. Her curiosity is satisfied, with potentially devastating results, when the city encroaches on her countryside home. Burton's tale relies on an almost universal acceptance of the pastoral ideal, and her message about the cost of rampant urbanization is told [...]

    8. Tranh đẹp, dễ thương hợp với trẻ con, nhưng nội dung thì sâu sắc người lớn đọc vẫn thích, một câu chuyện trong trẻo về đô thị hóa. Thích lắm.

    9. One of my favorite books from childhood this story remains timeless. This "little house" began its life in a bucolic, country setting and over time its integrity becomes threatened by encroaching development and neglect. For children, the concept of time is difficult to process. This story make it seem more understandable. Of course there is a happy ending and the house is rescued and relocated to the country. I am reminded of this story when I see small towns transformed by strip malls and unpl [...]

    10. Many years ago I owned this little book & record, playing it on my little record player. I wish I still had it, but through moves and houses it was long gone before I reached High School. But I did find the old cartoon on YouTube today while I was trying to locate the book's author after all these years, plus a read-along of the original book. Good memories today, while looking for 'a book you loved as a child' for a reading challenge this year.

    11. Very lovely story. Now, we are too busy.The little house love to see flowers and feel wind blowing. To live slowly is very important. This story maybe warning to the present generation.

    12. I just loved this book. The little house was sad to see things change around her, but it had a happy ending.

    13. I thought the first 12 pages of this book were perfect. It is the story of a sweet little house that is happy and loves the family that lives there. The family who built the Little House loved the house so much that they imagined their great great grandchildren's great great grand children living there. You watch the house move from season to season. You see the family in the apple orchard, swimming, kids running in the yard, then ice skating, sledding, snowmen. And then for some reason the auth [...]

    14. I was in our local book store buying my current obsession, Dark Places, & as always I had my 1 & 2 year old daughters w me. The deal always is if Nina (our oldest) behaves she gets to pick a book, she loves books so she always behaves in books stores. The children's section has 4 shelves w recommended books on them, each table done by age group. We hit the birth-3 years table & she picked a colorful book w a little girl on the potty on the cover. I then saw her wandering & we fou [...]

    15. So far, with the books I've been reading for this challenge, I've been able to see why they were selected for the list - the appeal they would have to children. Even if I personally wouldn't have liked them - as with Each Peach Pear Plum - I can see the appeal to other children.This is the first book I've read where I've simply not seen the attraction. I can see how adults would like it - it can be seen as a fable illustrating the negative effects of urbanisation, and has a nice nostalgic elemen [...]

    16. This is one of those books that embeds itself in your memory forever. I read it once or twice as a child at the library but never saw it again after that until I spotted it at a bookstore last year and just had to buy my own copy. It is a simple story about a well-loved house that survives generations and generations, first being built in the country and observing simple life and season changes around it. Over time a town pops up, which later turns into a city, which later turns into a dirty, ov [...]

    17. When I saw "The Little House" I was instantly filled with warm nostalgia, and a little bit of melancholy. I knew the book was important to me as a child, but I couldn't remember why I felt a twinge of sadness. As soon as I started reading it, I remembered: the poor Little House getting all forgotten and broken in the big city's shadow. Even so, I love the book and it really made an impression on me as a child. I love the cadence of the story and the illustrations, all the details in the changing [...]

    18. Genre: Concept Picture bookThis is a sweet story about a house that lived in the countryside for a very long time and as time went on she began to see a city in the distance. She was curious about the city and thought it would be an interesting place to be but as time progressed and the city grew into the countryside she began to realize that she was not accustomed to city life. This story is like that idea that you think you want something until you get it and realize what you had was what you [...]

    19. As a little girl, I'd ask my parents to read this picture book to me over and over again. It is so sweet, and the illustrations are so great.I love how the pictures (and words, of course) personify a house without giving it overly human qualities like some children's books nowadays eyes, for instance. Except in the Pixar animated movie Cars, I hate machines/house/etc. with eyes or other facial parts that makes them look like creepy little humans. *squirms uncomfortably* So whenever I return to [...]

    20. 2.5**This Caldecott winner was first published in 1942. It tells the story of a little house, set on a hill amid a field of daisies, with apple orchards, and a pond where the children swim in summer and ice skate in winter. Over the years the city encroaches, until the little house is abandoned in a canyon of skyscrapers. Until one day the great-great-granddaughter of the man who build the Little House sees it, and has it moved to a new spot in the country. The illustrations are lovely and brigh [...]

    21. I know the big fascination for me as a child was that a house could be moved--I'd certainly never heard of such a thing at the age of four or whatever I was then. And watching the city grow was pretty neat too, even though it didn't look much like the only city I knew at that point in my life (Toronto in the 1980s).

    22. My 8 year old was so excited when I brought this book home from the library. He just loves it. Must have been introduced to it at school.

    23. In this picture book, it tells a story of a little house that lived in the country. The little house watches the different season. This will allow students to learn what happens in the four different seasons in a book. The little country house noticed a change. It was not a season change but a cultural change. The country became a city and the little house missed her roots. The students will learn the differences between the city and country. the little house was picked up from a moving truck an [...]

    24. 3.5/5A sweet story book about a little house in the country who enjoys watching the passing of the days and the passing of the seasons. As the years go by, she also watches the effects of industrialization and urban sprawl.

    25. This was one of my favorite books as a kid. I completely forgot about it until today when Logan pointed out a house being transported down the highway.

    26. This book won the Caldecott Medal. The protagonist in this book is a little house built by a man way out in the country a very long time ago. He says, "This little house shall never be sold for gold or silver and she will live to see our great-great-grand children's great-great-grandchildren living in her." The little house is illustrated with the windows to look like her eyes, the door to like the nose and the stoops leading up to the door like the mouth. The house is illustrated throughout the [...]

    27. The Little House, by Virginia Lee Burton, is about a little house in the country that dreams of what life would be like in the city. As time goes by, lots of changes take place around where the little house lives. First a new road is built, and the little house gets very excited.
