Children of the Forest

The illustrations in Children of the Forest are magical, captivating and appropriate for small children. The text and story outlines the seasons, seasonal changes in nature and how life in the forest adapts to those changes.

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 fall comes, they collect and prepare food to see them through the long winter, until the warm spring breeze starts to blow.

Beskow's books have been continually reprinted since their original publication dates, and Children of the Forest has become a classic favorite among Waldorf teachers and families.
