Publisher's Summary

A sturdy, well tended little house standing on a hill in the countryside watches the days, nights, and seasons come and go as the town around her grows and develops before her.

My 4 year old LOVES this audiobook!

My daughter listens to this book every single night. She loves that it "turns the pages" along with the story, so it is like someone is reading to her in bed (which I do too, every night). It is something that helps her unwind on her own. A great story and a well done audiobook.

The final frontier! Made me think.

Wait a minute, I said to myself.
This is a very sad case study of our world today. So simply put.
The narration along with the illustrations were palpable.

Sweet memories

I enjoyed this book very much . I still have this book from when I was a little girl and my mother read it to me. I always felt like it was so real and I would imagine myself right there on the hill with the little house. I loved to look at the pictures and the different seasons . It was sad for me to watch the house get surrounded by the hustle and bustle and noise of the city. Then so wonderful to watch it get moved back to the country side. I enjoyed listening to someone read it to me just like my mother did! Thank you for the sweet memories

Wonderful story

Bought the book for my daughter at an awesome little book store in the St.Paul/Minnesota Airport. As soon as I got home my daughter and I downloaded the audio and read along. Cute story, inspiring the beauty and peace of the country. A story we look forward to reading again and again.

A classic to share with your kids. With pictures.

I remember the animated story from my childhood. I had no idea it was actually a book first. A fun little story where the only problem is I fall asleep while laying in bed with my 5-year old son listening to it.
A huge plus that it comes with the pictures.

A Bedtime Favorite

This is one of my son's favorite bedtime stories. He asks for it more than any other.

The narrator is very soothing.
