stArt: The Little House


As part of our unit study on community, we read The Little House by Virginia Lee Burton. It is about a little house in the country that was built so well that the owner never wanted it to be sold. Seasons change, generations go by and the house sees the countryside change as the city comes in and takes over. At one point, skyscrapers are built all around the little house. To find out how the book ends, you'll have to read the book yourself. :)

I was "lucky" again this week as Will took it upon himself to do something based on a book we'd read. Here he is with his skyscraper... "many stories high," as he said. (The paper he's holding is an award he gave himself for the world record in skyscraper building. LOL!)

His tower is very tall, and it was quite creative of him to award himself. Great book too.

D loves to see how high he can make the tower before M runs to knock it over. The quote on your header made me laugh. So true, so true!
