The Little House

By Virginia Lee Burton, 1909-1968

Seventy years ago, Virginia Lee Burton built the Little House way out in the country,
and since then generations of readers have been enchanted by the story of this happy
home and her journey from bucolic hill and the pleasures of nature to the bustling
city, and back again.
In celebration of this American classic’s seventieth anniversary, this special edition
features a brand-new introduction by Virginia Lee Burton’s son, noted sculptor Aris
Demetrios; a bonus audio CD of the story; and a foil treatment on the jacket. This
beautiful and timeless picture book is sure to be a favorite among readers for the next
seventy years, and beyond.
