**This project was supported by the Five Wings Arts Council with funds from the McKnight Foundation.
Released in July of 2019 as a hardcover diverse picture book, this book is a wonderful story about a family who is “going tiny” and determined to “do more with less.” The illustrations in this picture book are vibrant and we love the “gentle lessons” of recycling, repurposing, and the true meaning of the word home that are skillfully woven into this timely story.

Eight-year-old Sissy loves her life. She loves her toys, her Big house, and her Big backyard. But when Sissy’s parents decide they are going to live in a Tiny House on wheels and travel around the U.S., Sissy isn’t sure that she will like the idea of “living tiny.” But as she and her mommy and daddy learn about downsizing, repurposing, and how “stuff is just stuff” in a positive way, Sissy soon understands that living Tiny has BIG possibilities; possibilities for all sorts of adventures and learning.
Written by Rebecca Flansburg and BA Norrgard, both Minnesotans (who have been friends for over 30 years), Sissy Goes Tiny was created to share the idea and process of “going Tiny” from a child’s perspective. Go HERE to learn the story behind the book, why we wrote this unique book with some pretty special messages, and how Sissy got her name.

Beautifully illustrated poignant story about going tiny through the eyes of an 8-year-old! Sissy loved her big house and her big life. When she was told they were going to move to a tiny house on wheels, she was understandably a bit concerned. But her parents explained that they could travel and live wherever they wanted and would trade possessions for experiences. As Sissy and her parents purged their possessions and repurposed their things, Sissy started to get excited and it made her feel good that her donations would make other families happy! Sissy was ecstatic when their new tiny home finally arrived and fell in love with it immediately!~Amazon reviewer
