About the Author
Elsa Beskow (1874-1953), born Elsa Maartman in Stockholm, was a pioneering author and illustrator of children's books in Sweden―perhaps the best known of all Swedish children's book artists. Her books were inspired by her own childhood experiences, as well as those of her six children. Central themes were the relationships between children and adults and children's independent initiative. Her books are continually reprinted, and many have become classics. She also illustrated ABC books and songbooks for Swedish schools.

But. Not only does the book teach children, how clothes are made from wool - which by the way would be a great project to do with the children, who are being read this book (get some roving, have the children card it, spin it into yarn and have them weave it onto a small frame to make a coaster or little carpet)...no, the book also shows how Pelle always does something for the ones who help him in return for their help.
The big lesson of this book is this: When somebody does something for you, which YOU can't do by yourself - offer them your help with something THEY can't do by themselves in return. Give and take. And this big life lesson is taught in a very child friendly, beautifully illustrated way children will enjoy hearing and seeing over and over.
