Why did I love this book?
The Little House won the Caldecott Medal for a reason and is one of my all-time favourite books. Although it was published in 1942, the book remains relevant today, 80 yrs later. The story centers on a little house built at the top of a small hill, far out in the country. As the seasons pass, it sees the city lights, roads, and buildings grow ever closer. Something magical happens when the great, great-granddaughter rediscovers this little house nestled in between skyscrapers and subway stations. It is a powerful, timeless little book that will spark conversations about the passage of time and the urban sprawl.
