Delightful read about a young girl, her family, and two other families that live in close proximity to each other in the Swedish countryside. I love how the children are real, and the adults aren't treated as buffoons. The author adds some Swedish traditions to the mix that make this book even more special. Now I have to find the other books in the series... ( )

Man får följa tre familjer och alla barnen och hur de lever förr i tiden, innan tv, dator, mobiler och alla moderna grejer. Jag gillar sammanhållningen, hur alla hjälptes åt och hur mycket enklare det verkade vara att leva då till skillnad mot vad det är nu. ( )

Ok, I suppose this is not likely to appeal a lot to adults who don't read picture-books, but *I* personally, was utterly enchanted. I want to be one of these children, or one of the parents, or the teacher - what an absolutely delightful community. I'm 3/8 Swedish, and after reading this I can guess from which family traditions I got a lot of the ethics of kindness, and of finding joy in simple things, and of having fun in any season. ( )
