Peter's Old House
by Elsa Beskow
Every parents’ dream. A group of kids who band together to rebuild a dilapidated home for the village storyteller and toy boat maker. A simple and sweet story reminding all of us that kindness requires action and that children are highly capable especially in droves. You’ll also love the iconic swedish architecture including a dovecot.
Give to: the little tinkerer in your house or the handyman down the street that stops by in the fall to clean your rain gutters.
Give with: a little tool set or a little village or even some lime wash
Give as: a thank you for the husband who finally finished up that project on the house or the father who taught you how to wield a hammer.
