Linnea’s Almanack/Linneas årsbok

 Linnea’s Almanack was first published in 1982. Now the book has been given a larger format with a revitalised layout and with the content brought up to date. The book is full to the brim with things that are fun to know, and useful ideas. Linnea tells about her entire year, about what she did outside and indoors, month by month. Making a necklace of dandelions. Boiling nettle soup. Playing games. Making a matchstick chest. And finding the stars of the Plough in the night sky. None of these will be a problem for anyone who has read this book.

An inspiring and useful classic!
