THE LITTLE HOUSE: 2022 is the 80-year anniversary of Virginia Lee Burton’s The Little House, which inspired this story for a new generation.
BESTSELLING ILLUSTRATOR: Jen Corace’s artwork is stunning in both its architectural styles and its warmth in depicting House’s inhabitants and their individual details. Corace has illustrated books by Amy Krouse Rosenthal, Mac Barnett, Cynthia Rylant, Jane Yolen, and more.
LOVE COMES IN MANY FORMS: The story celebrates how love is captured by all the house’s diverse inhabitants and different kinds of family units over the years.
EASTER EGG FOR READERS: Readers will recognize that a child who grew up in the house at the beginning of the book returns to it at the end as a grandmother, showing how the house’s inhabitants have come full circle.
DISTINCT POV: Book’s like Home by Carson Ellis and School’s First Day of School by Adam Rex and illustrated by Christian Robinson have shown that freshly conceived, anthropomorphized protagonists can work in the market.
