Home is where the heart is, right?
Home is something many of us take for granted and I’m sure those who have struggled in the midst of the challenges of 2020 would agree—there’s no place like the safety and sanctuary of HOME.
But whether your humble abode is a 1000 acre Montana ranch or a cozy 400 square-foot apartment in Manhattan, the common denominator is that your version of Home, Sweet, Home is going to be that it is the place where you and your special people feel safe, nurtured, and loved.
One such book that captures that message beautifully is Sissy Goes Tiny by Rebecca Flansburg and BA Norrgard. Released in mid-2019, this diverse hardcover book continues to help families everywhere reimagine what a simpler lifestyle would look like while reinforcing the belief that home is indeed the place where love and family dwell no matter what the zip code.
Written to open minds and create curiosity about minimalism, tiny house living, downsizing, and repurposing, Sissy Goes Tiny is about a family that chooses to live Tiny and do More with Less. The text and vibrant illustrations are filled with “gentle lessons” that we all need to ponder about why “stuff” dominates our lives when “experiences” create lasting memories that only take up space in our brains and hearts.

ONE MORE THING–
Making reading an adventure and not a “task/ chore/requirement” during the summer months is a great way to help them increase the desire to learn and keep them interested as well. Setting aside time as a family and selecting a summer reading list is a great way to not only make the idea of reading more exciting but also to involve kids in voicing their thoughts and options on what it is that they would like to read.
