Book of the Week: The Little House
Childhood Book, Favorite Book, Medal Winner, Kids Book, Children Book, Children S Book, Picture Book
My favorite book...ever. This engaging picture book cleverly represents a wealth of information, the changing seasons in the country, the advancement in architecture and transportation, growth in population, and the accelerating tempo of city life. For ages 4 to 8. The 1943 Caldecott Medal winner.
This is my favourite book + children's books are very special to me - it holds a place in my heart attached to my Grandma who instilled in me a love of reading and my first copy of this book + it totally holds quite a few strong underlying morals - point: def getting the house permanently etched in me
The Little House The little house first stood in the country, but gradually the city moved closer and closer. "This engaging picture book clearly presents a wealth of information." -- Booklist... Such a cute childrens book!
The Little House, by Virginia Lee Burton. A favorite childhood book.

50 Children's Books Worth Reading Your 0-8 Years Old In no particular order. These are 50 books that I think all kids should read. I am not including the classics like The Snow Queen or Cinderella. These are for children zero to eight. They are all books made for kids too small to read for themselves yet or on the verge of being able to read short novels. Also this list is by no means complete, there may be some books you think I've missed. So I don't kill my fingers and make this post extremely long lets just say these are all classics in their own rights.

“Once upon a time there was a Little House way out in the country. She was a pretty Little House and she was strong and well built.” Published in 1942 by Virginia Lee Burton who wrote the words and created the art, The Little House tells the story of industrialization and urban sprawl. The Little House sits on a country hill surrounded by apple tree and green grass. The seasons pass, she looks up at the stars, the children grow up and move away, and The Little House wonders what it would be like to live in the city. One day, the city comes to her. A road is built, then houses, then buildings, then subways. She falls into disrepair. After a while, The Little House realizes she doesn’t like living in the city. Then, one day, the great-great granddaughter realizes The Little House belongs in her family and she has the house moved back to the country. The artwork is the key. Yeah, I know I’m a wordsmith but it’s true. The Little House is anthropomorphic, with two eyes and a smile. You can always tell what she’s thinking. But its the stages of urbanization as shown by the vehicles that really make this book shine. Two-wheeled carriages lead to four wheels to cars. There’s even a steam shovel that looks like the title character from Burton’s Mike Mulligan and His Steam Shovel. The story ends in the 1940s. I can only imagine what Burton would have drawn had the book been written in the 1960s, the 1980s, or the 2000s. This is a book that I had truly forgotten about. I rediscovered it when I helped my parent wade through some old storage boxes of my childhood stuff. I started reading this book to my son and we both like it. I know why I like it: this is a history book disguised as a children’s book. It makes history come alive in an entertaining and visual way. Better than a textbook, that’s for sure.
RESERVED FOR SUMMER // 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 she’s sad when she’s surrounded by the dirty, noisy city’s hustle and bustle: “She missed the field of daisies / and the apple trees dancing in the moonlight.” Fortunately, there’s a happy ending, as the house is taken back to the country where she belongs. A classic! Virginia Lee Burton was the talented author and illustrator of some of the most enduring books ever written for children. The winner of the 1942 Caldecott Medal for The Little House, Burton's books include heroes and happy endings, lively illustrations, and a dash of nostalgia. She lived with her two sons, Aristides and Michael, and her husband George Demetrios, the sculptor, in a section of Gloucester, Massachusetts, called Folly Cove. Here she taught a class in design and from it emerged the Folly Cove designers, a group of internationally known professional artisans. (courtesy of Amazon) Hardcover, no dj. Houghton Mifflin Co.

No Fits, Nilson! [Zachariah OHora] on Amazon.com. *FREE* shipping on qualifying offers. Nilson and Amelia do everything together. But if one little thing goes wrong, Nilson throws the biggest
OHora, Zachariah No Fits, Nilson! 32 pgs. Dial Books for Young Readers, 2013. $16.99. PICTURE BOOK. Amelia and Nilson are best friends who do (almost) everything together, but every once in a while something small sets Nilson off, and he explodes into a huge tantrum. At that point, Amelia and her mom step in, guiding him toward self-control by promising him rewards if he keeps himself calm. The system works well until the day the ice cream man runs out of Amelia's favorite flavor. Now she's the one who must figure out how to control her temper. No Fits, Nilson! is a cute story with fun, retro illustrations and a true-to-life little girl dealing with a very real issue: temper tantrums. While I wish the story focused more on showing children how to learn self-control, rather than relying on external factors (such as promised treats or punishments) for motivation, this is still a nice jumping-off point for discussions on when it is -- and isn't -- appropriate to have a tantrum, what causes tantrums, and how to control them. Children should have empathy for both Nilson and Amelia, cheering them on when they are able to avoid having fits and wincing when they do break down. Pre-K, EL (K-3) -- ADVISABLE. Reviewed by: Caryn
Get this from a library! No fits, Nilson!. [Zachariah OHora] -- Amelia must continually remind her gorilla friend, Nilson, not to have fits, especially when they are running errands with her mother, but sometimes Amelia stomps and growls, too.

My Thoughts: I am so happy to have the opportunity to read and own Naoko Stoop's first children's book. Savannah loved this most because her favorite word right now is moon, and every time we flipped the page and saw the moon, she was excited to be able to point it and out and say the word, "Moon." In regards to the storyline, Naoko did a great job in helping to teach children that bedtime means time for winding down for the night and being quiet. And, when you are quiet, you can hear the world around you, including the the moon and nature. Red Knit Cap girl really wants to hear the Moon and goes as far as to through Moon a party, with the help of her friends in the forest. It is not until they blow out the lanterns, and they are still and quiet, that she is able to talk to the Moon. As for the illustrations in this book, also done by Naoko, they are beautifully done, and not what you would expect in a children's book. But, Savannah loved the blending of colors to form beautiful forest scenes. My favorite illustration was the bright Moon near the end of the book. Simply stunning! This bedtime book will definitely become a classic, as it has already become a favorite in our house for bedtime. I can't wait to see what others titles will come from this up and coming children's author. She will be kept on my radar when looking for books to share with my daughters. About the Author: Naoko Stoop's love of drawing began when she was a young child growing up in Japan. Naoko now lives and paints in Brooklyn, New York, where she uses found materials such as plywood and brown paper bags as her canvas. She has shown her work in a variety of galleries and stores in New York. Red Knit Cap Girl is her first picture book.

"Autumn has caught us in our summer wear." - Philip Larkin, British poet (1922-1986) Here in sunny Southern California, there are not yet many signs of the coming fall, but I have seen a growing number of black crows, getting ready for the pecans to fall from my backyard neighbor's huge tree. And of course, Halloween merchandise is showing up everywhere. Cover illustration for by Randolph Caldecott's Sing a Song for Sixpence (1880) - public domain. This Saturday, September 22, marks the First Day of Autumn. I noticed this shocking fact when I opened my pocket datebook yesterday, with the approaching equinox staring me in the face (equinox comes from the Latin words for "equal night." The fall and spring equinoxes are the only days of the year in which the Sun crosses the celestial equator.) When our kids were growing up, we liked to celebrate fall and fun on Halloween, without too much fright. I've heard many families express the same desire, so I'm constantly on the look-out for fun versus frightening Halloween ideas for my blog (click HERE to see some of my past pumpkin posts). This year, I'm really liking black birds, versus bats (stay tuned for a fun party idea coming up in October!) Birds on a wire? Find these cute paper clips HERE. (Comes with 8 blackbird clips on a 36" cord) Here's a cute product I recently came across...a teacher used it on a bulletin board with fun photos, literary quotes, and fall poetry. Reminds me of the well-known English nursery rhyme, Sing A Song Of Sixpence: Sing a song of sixpence, A pocket full of rye. Four and twenty blackbirds, Baked in a pie. My book recommendation for today? A "haunting" quirky fable about crows and a snake: The Crows of Pearblossom, by Aldous Huxley (yes, the author of Brave New World wrote a children's book)...how two silly crows - with the help of a wise owl - solve the problem of a hungry snake devouring their eggs is a tale of cleverness triumphing over greed. Born in England and educated at Balliol College, Huxley relocated to Southern California with his family in 1937. He wrote The Crows of Pearblossom for his niece, Olivia, in 1944 as a Christmas gift. In 1967 it was published in a small-format edition (now out of print), illustrated by Barbara Cooney. I ordered the new 2011 edition because I couldn't resist Sophie Blackall's wonderful illustrations!

The Swan by Laurel Snyder I am smitten with Julie Morstad's work. So when she write or illustrates a new book, I wait patiently. It's always worth the wait. | A story about prima ballerina , Anna Pavlova. Anna rose through the ranks of Imperial Ballet School although her body did not fit what was considered the perfect ballerina body for that time. | For the rest, we shall wait for the August release date. @chroniclebooks
