I didn’t buy them, but I still think those Half-Pint sized editions of Laura Ingalls Wilder’s Little House on the Prairie Books are fun. I wanted to buy them, but practicality took over and I wondered: where would one shelve such tiny books, anyway?
I’ve found the answer.
The miniature Little House on the Prairie books can be shelved on a miniature bookcase in a Half-Pint sized replica of the Little House.
If you don’t want to buy this one ($45), you can always build your own miniature town of Walnut Grove.
Now I know those of you who are true devotees will instantly recognize that these replicas are the buildings from the television series, “Little House on the Prairie”. If you’re feeling ambitious and and if you’re feeling that these Half-Pint sized books need an authentic Half-Pint size homestead, you might try your hand building a replica of this:
The Ingalls Homestead in DeSmet, South Dakota, which we visited last summer.
The Surveyor’s House in DeSmet, South Dakota, described in By The Shores of Silver Lake.
I think I’m going to make some little Half-Pint size, doll-house people to live in my replica of the Little House. After all, who’s going to read those miniature books? I can think of two people, in particular:
Tom and Huck and a newborn colt at the Ingalls Homestead in DeSmet last summer.
See you in the stacks!
