This time I got a book with a different and little funny name to review. This book has been sent to my mom as a part of the MultiCultural Book Day Event. It seems “MultiCultural Book Day” is a special event conducted by two people Valarie Budayr and Mia Wenjen. They both are working towards introducing multicultural books to children and introduce varied cultures and new concepts to children across the world through this event. On this day, a lot of new books from different cultures would be read and reviewed by children across the world as a part of the #ReadYourWorld campaign. My mom got the book “Sissy Goes Tiny” to review as a part of this event only.
My Thoughts on Sissy Goes Tiny:
In the first chapter, when the author was narrating about Sissy’s bedroom, I just remembered my room only. I also have a huge and fluffy bed like her. But I use that room only as my study and playroom only. I am a little scared to sleep alone. Though I am trying to sleep alone for the last two weeks, in the middle of the night, I go to my parent’s bedroom and sleep with them. Of course, the next day morning, I will invariably fight with them, asking why did they come and take me into their room. It seems it’s mostly, me who go into their room and I don’t remember it.
Coming back to the story, Sissy’s parents think of moving from a big house to a small house. How they go about this move is what the book all about. I got to understand a new concept called purging. This concept helps us to classify our possessions based on our needs. I liked this concept. To date, I never wanted to let go of the toy I played with a long time back. After reading through this book, I now understood the need to let go of the things that we are not using.
I am looking forward to reading about Sissy’s adventures in her new tiny house. I was telling my parents also to buy this tiny house and start living like that, as that means it’s going to be continuous traveling and exploring new places.
Sissy Goes Tiny is a book that would introduce the minimalistic living concept to children. This is the first time I heard this concept and I bet most of my friends wouldn’t know this concept. So, I will recommend this book to all the kids my age i.e., 8+ years. I really liked the illustrations of this book. They are big and warm drawings. This book is available on Amazon and here is the link for the same.
