A Borrower’s Reading Kit: A Kit for the Tiniest of Readers

Posted May 10, 2016 by Alison's Wonderland Recipes in Reading Kits / 4 Comments

This month’s reading kit is based on The Borrowers, and I’m happy to say there were so many options for things to include that I had trouble holding myself back! I knew Arrietty’s iconic cherry tree needed to be featured, along with the tiny scissors. But then I started finding so many borrower-like mini things that the list got SUPER long. I trimmed the kit down to 6 items, but don’t worry—I planned another mini-item themed post for next week!

What items would I include in a Borrower’s reading kit? I’m so glad you asked…

Sip this tea while imagining you’re under Arrietty’s favorite cherry tree.

And of course you’ll need a tiny tea set to brew it in.

    • Thanks! I got really into it. I think I spent an hour on Pinterest going “OMG THEY MAKE TINY BOOKS! AND SPOOLS OF THREAD! AND CARRIAGES! AND ITTY BITTY HOUSES FROM HOLLOWED OUT TREE STUMPS!”

      I almost didn’t get the post finished on time because I couldn’t decide what to keep in it. XD

    Awwwwww! I love the borrowers! And mini things. As a kid, I used to wish little people would live in my dollhouse. I absolutely love Miyazaki’s Secret World of Arietty. ^ ^ So excited about these menus!
