Thirteen stories of Little David who befriends the men building a house next door and participates in the action from the digging of the foundation to the laying of the shingles. Final volume in a series of a stories created by a father to induce a certain little boy to go to sleep. For nearly three years his one listener heard them repeated many times, and his interest never flagged. As the first stories told, the farm stories, slowly grew in number, eventually to fill two volumes, they entirely displaced other stories, and that farm became as real in the mind of his listener as it was in fact when little John was driving the cows or planting the corn in the early part of the nineteenth century. Later came two more volumes about a ship and its voyages at sea, and this final volume on house building. Ideal for ages 5 to 7.
