Swedish children’s literature
Who haven’t heard of Pippi and Astrid Lindgren? But there’s more to it when it comes to Swedish children’s literature. When I was living abroad Swedish children’s books – in Swedish – were very important to me and hopefully to my kids too. Luggage was heavy every time we returned after a visit to Sweden. I bought tons of books.
Today, being back in Sweden, we enjoy the libraries and spend less money – not time – on books. We still carry loads home every week.
