    " The illustrations in this little book about growing up and moving forward and the way life is in general are awesome. I love the message it depicts, which can be applied to so many things. A great book for kids. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Theresa | 2/8/2014

    " the story of a little house and how the world grows up around it "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mer | 1/30/2014

    " Loved this book as a kid. I would recommend it to anyone. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Olivia | 1/28/2014

    " One of my absolute favorite picture books. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Gary Christensen | 1/27/2014

    " The tone of this book is pitch perfect. This perfectly embodies industrialization in the United States and what I would say, is a particularly American solution. Move the house. Lovely book. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Theshiney | 1/21/2014

    " now this is a children's book. because the story features a single constant throughout (the little house), there is created a wonderful interaction between the reader and the book. it is more interactive than 'Where's Waldo?' which demands your interaction. this book is more fulfilling because one witnesses the change of seasons and generations, the epic march of time from one page to the next all around the house. i remember flipping through this, back and forth, over and over, watching, noticing, pointing, wondering... im sure this book helped teach me how to see. a quality i don't take lightly as an artist... sure, the moral of the story is not as relevant as the author intended (the urban environment is anything but one-dimensional) but its sweet nonetheless. it creates a genuine empathy for the house, as much as one might have toward a person- subtly leading to a more powerful statement. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Miriam Garcia | 1/18/2014

    " This is a good book to use to when talking about induralization and change throughout the years. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jinnie | 1/17/2014

    " One of the first books I remember as a child, the story of a little house that has a large city grow around it over time, but is saved and restored in the end. The illustrations have particularly stuck with me over the years; I used to pour over them as a child and dream I lived in the house. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Soojin | 12/19/2013

    " Great book with great illustrations. rec. to 1st or 2nd gr. Shows change in history as well as seasons. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Roxanne Lund | 12/12/2013

    " Love this story as a read a loud. A little house experiences the effects of population growth and a change from country to city life. This book's initial copyright was in 1942 - a classic. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jamie | 12/10/2013

    " Happy ending for a beloved little house! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Tina Schwager | 11/26/2013

    " Such a cute book, and I enjoyed reading it. The pictures were descriptive and the colors stood out. A book children would enjoy in the classroom. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Liz B | 11/16/2013

    " Super cute! This book is delightful. It also illustrates the difference between the country and the city. Over time things really start to look different for the strong little house. "

    " Jaspy liked it :) "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ann Coria | 6/12/2012

    " This book was one of my favorites as a child, and I still love it today. It has so many lessons in it, and the pictures always spoke to my heart. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Adam Hardesty | 5/10/2012

    " This is a book I read a lot when I was little. It's a great story to read to kids but is too hard for them to read on them own. It's a really good children's book with great illustrations. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Joanna | 3/1/2012

    " This story brings life and subtle emotion to the house at its center. It makes the happy family memories around it so beautiful and conveys the sense of claustrophobia, encroachment and pollution and then the final rescue. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lesley | 12/25/2011

    " Amalia has re-discovered this classic and wanted to read it almost every night for a week. I love the illustrations and the flow of the language so I'm happy to oblige. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sarah Nolet | 11/19/2011

    " I really liked how in this book, the pictures told the story just as much as the writing did. I think that the story showed how things change so suddenly. The pictures showed how the city around the house changed but the house stayed the same, which I felt was really interesting. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Barbara | 6/23/2011

    " This is a delightful story, a yearning for olden days, before urbanization and sprawl! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Bess | 5/5/2011

    " This is such a touching little book -- I bawl every time I read it. Throughout it, from start to finish. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Liz | 4/18/2011

    " Super cute! This book is delightful. It also illustrates the difference between the country and the city. Over time things really start to look different for the strong little house. "

    " I liked the story up to the last page. The drawings are nice in an old fashioned sort of way. It won a Cadlecott. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Carissa | 2/27/2011

    " This book is such a cute classic! It also sends a very important message out to children about our society always taking over earth and making it into much larger cities and always developing. Even if you are not sending a message out, it is still a very sweet book! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 LeeAnn | 2/2/2011

    " Cute book. Makes me think of the ones I read when I was liitle by the drawings. "
