Country Bear borrows apples from his neighbor because that's what neighbors are for. But when he comes back for sugar, an egg, flour, walnuts, and more, he almost empties his neighbor's pantry. Now his good neighbor doesn't feel very neighborly. But all ends happily later in the day when Country Bear returns all that he borrowed--in a freshly baked surprise.
Virginia Lee Burton won the Caldecott Medal in 1943 for her memorable picture book The Little House, a poignant story of a cute country cottage that becomes engulfed by the city that grows up around it. The house has an expressive face of windows and doors, and even the feelings of a person, so she’s sad when she’s surrounded by the dirty, noisy city’s hustle and bustle: “She missed the field of daisies / and the apple trees dancing in the moonlight.” Fortunately, there’s a happy ending, as the house is taken back to the country where she belongs. A classic!
