Lisa and her friends live on farms outside a village in the Swedish countryside.
They enjoy simple pleasures of life – crayfishing in a local pond, celebrating Christmas, enjoying walks home from school, shopping at the local market for their mothers.
The Children of Noisy Village was written by Astrid Lindgren, author of Pippi Longstocking in the early 1960’s. With its short chapters and simple stories about life in the Swedish countryside, it’s a great choice for pre-bedtime reading.
Recommended for ages 5 and up as a read-aloud; ages 7 and up as a reader.
