The little house first stood in the country, but gradually the city moved closer and closer.
Published Reviews
Publisher's Weekly Review: "The author of Mike Mulligan and His Steam Shovel and her works feature in a group of fall titles. Virginia Lee Burton's Caldecott Medal-winning The Little House, about a cozy country home that passes through the seasons, becomes engulfed by urban sprawl and is subsequently restored to a suitably rural setting, now appears in a 60th anniversary edition. A special bellyband bedecks the hardcover and a citation graces the paperback edition. (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved"
