Ollie's Ski Trip by Elsa Beskow

Six-year-old Ollie is given his first pair of real skis. As soon as the snow begins to fall, he sets off on an adventure by himself to the palace of King Winter. Along the way, he meets Jack Frost, who makes everything sparkle, and Mrs. Thaw, who makes everything melt.

At the palace, Ollie meets children helping to make Christmas presents—that is, until breaktime, when they rush outside for a big snowball fight. Finally, Mrs. Thaw gets her way, and the lovely snow starts to disappear. Ollie is very upset and wishes it could be winter forever—until Spring arrives one lovely day when in her carriage, pulled by butterflies.

More About This Product

This was one of my very favorite books to read to the children in my Waldorf kindergarten class in the months when snow covered our playground, and during the transition from winter to spring.

Elsa Beskow was born Elsa Maartman in Stockholm in 1874. She was the best known Swedish children's book illustrator of her time. Her books were inspired by her own childhood in Sweden, as well as the adventures of her six children.
