    A charming story about the everyday life of six children living on the three neighboring farms that everybody calls "noisy village" because of its "high spirits".

    Story

    Although not technically a series of short stories, each chapter does stand alone for the most part with charming, gentle stories of rural life in long ago Sweden. My 3 and 5 year old girls were completely captivated.

    However I have to agree with the reviewer who mentioned the Christmas issue. I was very glad I was paying attention when it was playing in the car and I suddenly heard a sentence begin with words along the lines of "When I was little I used to believe there was a real..." Luckily I slammed on the off button on time and I told them the CD ran out! Thankfully they didn't suspect a thing. I would have been devastated to ruin the magic of Christmas for my little ones in such an unexpected way with such an otherwise charming book. (Tip, I had burnt this to disc for the car. My husband afterwards burnt another copy deleting what was track 10 for us so that we could remove any danger of a repeat)
