My favourite book as a child. Spoke to a friend about it and put it in Amazon search. Much to my surprise and delight it came up straight away Such a lovely story and still so relevant in today's busy world.
The Little House is a real trip down memory lane for me. I read it over and over again as a child but then the book was lost. It covers night and day, the changing of the seasons and the encroachment of the city on the countryside. This little house has feelings and the reader is totally drawn into it's decline and eventual happiness. I missed being able to read this story to my sons so I can't wait to read it to my grandson.
