Gayle brought this little YouTube movie to my attention the other day. I don’t remember seeing the movie as a kid, but I remember reading a book based on the film.
Although a cartoon, and maybe not what you expect to see here, I think it effectively demonstrates how our countries thoughts on housing have evolved through the years. It also shows why so many people today come to realize that living more simply, in the long run, is the way to go. As most of us know, having more and bigger does not make you happier.
Thanks Disney for presenting this lesson so well for us.
*Correction: The book “The Little House” (by Virginia Lee Burton) came first – it was published in 1942, a decade before Disney made this short.
