The Little House
Virginia Lee Burton is one of my all-time favorites. Mike Mulligan and His Steam Shovel is just one of her many fantastic books, which feature themes such as how to treat others and believe in yourself. The Little House is modestly told and illustrated. What happens when the world changes around you? An early commentary on urbanization. Winner of the 1943 Caldecott Medal. 40 pages.
