ELSA BESKOW ~ CHILDREN OF THE FOREST BOXED PUZZLE ~
by Elsa Beskow
Here at Tanglewood Toys we have long been admirers of the beautiful illustrations and stories from Elsa Beskow. She is one of the most popular childrens illustrator in Sweden, where her picture books have been known and loved for over a century.(1874-1953)
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 autumn comes, they collect and prepare food to see them through the long winter, until the warm spring breeze starts to blow.
The box contains 4 puzzles, all with 12 pieces. Each puzzle, once completed, measures 17.5 x 11.8 cm and has markings on the back so that children can easily identify which pieces belong together.
