children of the forest
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.
Elsa Beskow (1874-1953) is one of Sweden's most popular children’s authors. Her picture books have been known and loved for over a century and her charming stories were inspired by her own childhood adventures, as well of those of her six children.
