The Little House by Virginia Lee Burton is one of the truly timeless cozy books. This Caldecott winner was written in 1942, but it seems to apply just as much today as it did back then.

The little house is built way out in the country by a family who loves it and says it will never be sold for gold or silver. The house enjoys watching the seasons go by from her place on the hill. At night, she can see the glow of the city in the distance and wonders what a city is like. One day machines arrive and build a road that goes by the little house. Then the city slowly spreads until the house is surrounded. What will happen to the little house?

The Little House tells a story of home, the seasons, progress and the peace of the countryside. It’s a cozy book every child should read and enjoy. Be sure to add it to your pile of cozy books to visit over and over again!

This is part of my A Month of Cozy Books series!

“We who live in quiet places have the opportunity to become acquainted with ourselves, to think our own thoughts and live our own lives in a way that is not possible for those keeping up with the crowd.”
Laura Ingalls Wilder

“After Laura and Mary had washed and wiped the dishes, swept the floor, made their bed, and dusted, they settled down with their books. But the house was so cozy and pretty that Laura kept looking up at it.”
Laura Ingalls Wilder
On the Banks of Plum Creek

“They were cosy and comfortable in their little house made of logs, with the snow drifted around it and the wind crying because it could not get in by the fire.”
