Once upon a time there was a Little House way out in the country.

She was a pretty Little House and she was strong and well built.

The man who built her so well said, «This Little House shall never be sold for gold or silver and she will live to see our great-great-grandchildren’s great-great-grandchildren living in her.


Winner of the Caldecott Medal and in print for more than sixty years, The Little House is an enchanting classic of American children’s literature.


«This engaging picture book cleverly presents a wealth of information—the changing seasons in the country, the advancement in architecture and transportation, growth in population, and the accelerating tempo of city life.» —Booklist


«In The Little House Virginia Lee Burton, with lively imagination and genuine power, has made an original and charm-ing picture book. . . . There is something fortifying for [children] in the lasting qualities of The Little House and the steady round of the turning year.» —New York Times Book Review


«The story of a little house that wins its way into the very center of our heart.» —Horn Book

«Her stories may be simple and straight-forward, but her books have héroes and heroines children can understand and enjoy, ingenious and satisfactory end-ings, and lively illustrations. The books survive because they exhibit so effective-ly the elements most basic to children’s literature.» —Lee Kingman, Virginia Lee Burton’s editor, in Children’s Books and Their Creators
