This book is about typical christmas traditions in Bullerby, Sweden. It tells how the seven children experience christmas together in a very traditional way. To my regard, many children do not experience a very traditional way of Christmas anymore. Their man focus is on the presents they will have and not on all the preparations and the wonderful day. Like all the other books of the Bullerby children, it should expire families to put their focus less on the present, but more on time spending together, baking cookies, enjoy the snow (if there is snow) and of the story why Christmas is celebrated.… (more)

The writer writes of the activities in vivid images. The pictures are the kind that children can spend a long time pointing to and retelling the story of the book. This book will spark children's imagination, and they will come away activities that they will want to do at Christmas.… (more)

Delightful picture book story from the Noisy Village series. The illustrations are so whimsical, I could spend hours pouring over each page, and the Swedish holiday traditions within are similar to those of my own family.

Oh my goodness these children are adorable. And lucky! With love, and work, even the long dark cold winters of Sweden can be full of joy and good cheer.
