    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.

    The Power of Nature The house is content living in nature and she is content She is curious about the city Eventually the city swallows her up and she loses her color and gets sad She is moved back out to the country where she is happy again.I take this as the power of nature and when we live in it s flows we are healthy and happy and when we rush about, we aren t so happy and we get sick A powerful story I think it s still relevant to our world today I love this little story and it s beautiful art and sun and moon charts The kids enjoyed this one too This holds up and it was written during WWII It is even color, so the publisher really believed in it.

    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 afterward Roxaboxen Again She has a laugh her sisters call the Evil Chipmunk Of course It s my favorite book Huck climbs half on top of me and begins to count the trees around the little pink house He s very into counting, these days.I love quiet books like The Little House, the kind that tiptoe their way into a child s heart The house is built, the countryside blooms, the seasons change The sun arcs across the page and this must be pored over, wait, Mommy, don t turn the page yet And then the next spread, the calendar of moons We must pause while Rilla touches each crescent and disk, naming the days The road comes rolling out from the distant city that s Huck s page to study Steam shovel, big rocks, little rocks, tar, steamroller He could stay there all day But the city is encroaching, surrounding, swallowing the little pink house, and Rilla has picked up the urgency We have to read quickly now she needs to know Trolley line, elevated train, subway, skyscrapers, you can hardly see the poor house.It s magical, you know, when the movers come to carry it away A house on the back of a truck Both children are astounded at this marvel They d have taken unicorns and dragons in stride, but a house riding along the road to a new hill in the countryside clearly this is a wonder of the world.Later, when Huck is napping, Rilla pounces on me, brandishing the book The pink house winks from the cover Again Yes It s my favorite book Originally posted here.

    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 moves to the country, and it sprawls and builds and drives all around the Little House and its apple tree until the tiny cottage is completely overshadowed by skyscrapers and all kinds of vehicles The Little House, surrounded you can just see it peering fearfully out from under the overhead train Then, the rescue The house is relocated back to a similar hillside location.Meanwhile, there s not much left of this Sydney house to relocate It was all approved apparently and is legal We may think of many inconveniences when we buy half a house, but this is probably far fetched than we would have imagined Lewisham, Sydney, Australia 2016Question What will happen when we run out of hillsides for our Little Houses It s too sad to contemplate.Great book to introduce children questioning how we live, what we do, and why we do it.

    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 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, and both are classic children s books about dealing with major changes in the world The books are beautifully drawn with lovely storytelling Highly recommended.

    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 thought it was a bit boring about reading about a little house just sitting there while everything around her was changing, but after reading it now, I started to see how amazing and beautiful this book really is Virginia Lee Burton, author of Mike Mulligan and his Steam Shovel, has done a terrific job at both illustrating and writing this book as it details a little house s experience to life in the city I loved the way that Virginia Lee Burton made the little house seem like a human being than an object since the little house has to deal with the changes that happened around her and this book strongly related to me and also many children who had a similar experience since where I lived, houses are built around my neighborhood whereas the first time we came to our neighborhood years ago, there were barely any houses in sight and dealing with this kind of experience sometimes gave me anxiety, but I eventually got used to it I also loved the message of the book about just having a simple life can make you happy since the book teaches children that you do not have to have a rich apartment complex or a huge house to be happy, you can just have a small house or a comfortable house that suits your needs to be happy with your life Virginia Lee Burton s illustrations are just beautiful and outstanding as ever as the little house is shown to be pink and is always smiling in every image except for the images of where the little house is in the city and is miserable My favorite images in this book were of the scenes where the little house is shown in several different seasons like winter, fall, spring, and summer and you can see the atmosphere around the little house change as each season comes by such as in the summer, everything is green and in winter, everything is white I also loved the way that Virginia Lee Burton contrasted the country as a peaceful looking place by having light colors around the environment while the city is shown to be a dark and dreary looking place.All in all, The Little House is a beautiful book about various changes going on in your surroundings that many children will definitely enjoy for many years I would recommend this book to children ages four and up since there is nothing inappropriate in this book for smaller children Review is also on Rabbit Ears Book Blog

    Although from a narrational and textual consideration, I have tended to find in particular author illustrator Virginia Lee Burton s rather detailed and minute descriptions of the increasing urban spread surrounding the Little House a bit monotonous and repetitive, for the most part, her Caldecott Medal winning The Little House glowingly presents both an aesthetically stunning, visually pleasant and also astutely representational marriage of text and accompanying images with especially her illustrative use of colour and light making and with no pun intended here The Little House truly shine And yes, actually that very sense of monotony I feel during the illustrated spreads of The Little House which depict and describe how the Little House is being increasingly surrounded and almost devoured by the encroachment of urbanity, that is in fact rather majorly realistic in and of itself and as such indeed to be much commended For I personally do very much and strongly consider cities as general entities considerably mundane, non versatile and also rather increasingly boringly monotonous than the majority of rural or small town areas something that I absolutely do find Virginia Lee Burton has both visually and verbally totally and astutely captured with The Little House, showing for example, how even as the city keeps expanding and growing around the Little House with cars, subways, skyscrapers and masses of people rushing around from place to place, there was actually much fun, games, engagement and personal interaction when the Little House was a still small rural family farm with a few neighbours close by but not encroaching Wonderfully engaging, visually marvellous and indeed, considering that Virginia Lee Burton penned and illustrated The Little House in 1942, still relevant today with its depictions of urbanisation and urban sprawl, except sadly that today, that in 2019, finding a rural, not yet too developed area to which one can move or to which one can relocate a small house from a given city area is of course and than likely much much difficult than in the 1940s, as there are just not that many empty and non urban areas available any, and indeed, even those rural and empty spaces that do still exist always or at least rather too often often seem to be in constant danger of being swallowed up into city limits and or made into sterile bedroom community like subdivisions.

    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 subtly, yet without subterfuge Since this is a picture book, in many ways it oversimplifies the tension between the country and the city, and the country is set up as a universal good while the city is painted as a heartless villain Yet at the same time it provides a clear context as relevant today as it was in 1943 through which to question the progress of urban development.And of course, from a childlike perspective, this is also the sweet story of a little house with a soul who, after years of neglect, is returned to a home in the country with a family to love and care for her The little pink house has the most charming, life like face, and as a child I always wanted to live in it In some ways, I still do.
