If you only know Astrid Lindgren’s beloved Pippi Longstocking books, then you’ve got a treasure trove of other books to explore! She wrote dozens of books and more than 60 have been translated into English. One of her best-known is The Children of Noisy Village.
Six young children live on adjoining farms in rural Sweden. They have so much fun together and make so much noise doing it, that their farms earn the nickname Noisy Village. These chapter titles give you a sweet glimpse into their everyday adventures: My Nicest Birthday, How Olaf Got His Dog, Anna and I Make People Happy, Those Mischievous Boys, Walking Home From School and 14 other darling chapters of everyday life in Sweden.
Here is 128 pages of real-aloud bliss. Light the fire, snuggle up on the couch and enjoy some good old fashioned Swedish fun!
