The Little House, One of My All Time Favorite Books

The book, THE LITTLE HOUSE written and illustrated by Virginia Lee Burton is one of my all time favorites.  It is also a Caldecot awarded book!
This book is one of the sweetest stories and has so many wonderful lessons in it.   After reading and discussing the story each child was given a sheet of paper to do draw and color a picture of either a city scene or country scene.  After the scene was complete "The Little House".  Next, each child dictated to me what "The Little House" saw in the book.  And I wrote that on the road at the bottom of the paper.  These are displayed on one of our bulliten boards in the hall.  If you get a chance, come by and see our "Little House Stories".

  1. I was wondering why Amelia was asking me if we lived in the country or the city!
