one of my favorites!
by Julie -
I love how this story beautifully describes each step required to making a garment while showing children how to cooperate, give and receive, and live in a community. I recommend this to every family with young children. I never tire of reading it... and I will probably feel the same many years from now reading it to my grandchildren.

Very sweet gentle story that helps children to see the process of where Pele's new suit comes from. it has been a favorite of my son since we bought it when he was 3 and still a favorite at nearly 9!

This enchanting tale of how young Pelle makes a new suit is such an important process for young children to read about. We do a fair amount of sewing/knitting in our house, but this story really helped walk my children through the entire process of how our clothing comes into existence.
Favorite Else Beskow Book

This has been a family favorite since my sons were babies. It is a beautiful, simple story with a lovely message. How often do children's books depict little boys tending their grandmother's farms? Just a delight and utterly timeless.
