Virginia Lee Burton won the Caldecott Medal in 1943 for her memorable picture book The Little House, a poignant story of a cute country cottage that becomes engulfed by the city that grows up around it.
-The house has an expressive face of windows and doors, and even the feelings of a person, so shes sad when shes surrounded by the dirty, noisy citys hustle and bustle: - “She missed the field of daisies / and the apple trees dancing in the moonlight. inches -Fortunately, theres a happy ending, as the house is taken back to the country where she belongs. A classic! -Board Book
