THE LITTLE HOUSE
New York : Houghton Mifflin, 1969.
IL K-3, RL 3.8
Little House lives in the country. She sees the lights from the city
in the distance and wonders what the city is like. She watches the
days go by and one day sees changes in the form of automobiles, roads,
more houses and buildings. Pretty soon the city is built up around
her and no one pays attention to her until one day the great, great granddaughter
of the man who built the Little House walks by. She discovers this
is the Little House from her childhood and decides to move her to the country
and live in her. Little House is happy to be able to do nothing but
watch the seasons change and be taken care of.
This book makes a good study of changes not only in the seasons but also in life around us. (Patty Shingleton, Hazard, KY)
