The Little House by Virginia Lee Burton


We just got back from the West Coast on Friday night and are still a little jet lagged, so yesterday we spent the day outside walking and enjoying the New England spring! Since we spent the week in the city, I remembered this sweet little board book I bought for Luke when he was a little babe called The Little House by Virginia Lee Burton. You might recognize the cover because…

she also wrote Mike Mulligan and his Steam Shovel. Remember that book?! Anyways, The Little House is about a sweet little cottage that goes from living in the beautiful country to having a city built around it and then back to the country. I love the baby board version because it had Wesleigh interested, and it started a nice family discussion about what we love about the city and what we love about our little town. We take our quiet little town for granted this time of year because there isn’t a ton to do outside the house, but it’s a sweet little town we feel blessed to be a part of.

Do you talk to your kids about city/country life? Would love to know about it below!
