Perhaps you have watched Tiny House Nation on Netflix, or other television shows about tiny house living. To date, most resources about downsizing and reducing in the housing area are aimed at grown-ups. Now we have one of the first, if not the first, book about tiny living for children. Can you imagine such an experience as moving from a big house full of stuff to a tiny house on wheels? It might be very scary for a child. This book, Sissy Goes Tiny, considers such an experience through the eyes of a child. Hey, it might be scary for adults, too. What to take? What to leave? Stuff is just stuff, but it is full of our memories.
One of the authors of this book, B.A. Norrgard, has been living the tiny lifestyle since 2012 when she hand-built her 78 square foot house. She has been active in this area of housing development. Her high school friend, Becky Flansburg, knows about the children’s book publishing business. Together they thought up a possible book for children. Through their publishing world contacts and luck in finding an illustrator (Penny Weber) the book recently became a reality.
What will Sissy take with her? What will she donate? Can she sell anything? There is so much to think about!
