Synopsis

Children of the Forest by Elsa Beskow

This is a mini gift edition of Elsa Beskow's classic story. 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.

Reviews
