Children of the Forest
This book invites children to follow their engaging adventures through each season.
The children of the forest live deep in the roots of an old pine tree. They collect wild mushrooms and blueberries and shelter under toadstools when it rains. They play with the squirrels and frogs, and when autumn comes, they collect and prepare food to see them through the long winter, until the warm spring breeze starts to blow.
The book was written by Elsa Beskow (1874-1953), one of Sweden's most beloved children's book authors. With his books, Swedish children have grown up together for over a hundred years. Beautiful, close-to-nature and soulful illustrations take the reader back to the timeless idyll of the last century.
Elsa Beskow's books have become a real classic with their timeless content and beautiful, close-to-nature illustrations.
