Dear Library Patrons, The mission of NYPL is to inspire lifelong learning, advance knowledge, and strengthen our communities. Government support only pays for a portion of our work, so we rely on you to help - from stocking our shelves with amazing books, expanding our e-Book selection, classes, events, or even making free WiFi accessible to all. We are trying to raise $500,000 by December 31: an ambitious goal, but one that will fund incredible learning and reading in our community. Please consider donating to help keep our services free to all New Yorkers in 2015 >>

I loved this book as a child and the illustrations are the same as I remember them but readin this as an ebook was rather frustrating because you kept reading the same page over and over as the perspective changed to give a different view of the page.

Beautiful story. Talks about life in the country and how cities are built.

The Little House: Her Story. An interesting look at time from her point of view, describes the seasons and years much in the way a house might. Simply gentle.

Parts of the story reminded me of "A Contract With God: Life on Dropsie Avenue." A very sweet story.
