I love this book by Atrid Lindgren. In this story she combined the art to tell story full of melancholy and sadness that you could fins in many ages during the past centuries in Europe - the bad situation of orphans who just have been used as workers on farms or factories. But she also is able to tell a story that has hope for a better future too, a future where the world around those two children becomes as a child would long for. And, at the end they find they way out of their horrible situati [...]

The blurb compares this to Andersen's Little Match Girl. I think more of Wilde's Selfish Giant. In any case, yeah, an extended investigation of the choice between life as an orphan "in the time of poverty" and freezing to death with pleasant dreams on the way down. Some children will love it. I might have, but I honestly can't say, can't remember young me that well.And the end is a problem, I think. Can someone who has read it explain to me (view spoiler)[why it's ok that Anna and Matthew shut t [...]

We adore fairy tales. We adore Sweden. We adore Astrid Lindgren. We adored this book. It’s a good thing we purchased it. It became an instantly favorite and my Lamby (age 5) went off to take it to her bedroom bookshelf.

de två första novellerna är fantastiska. men de två sista håller inte måttet. men ändå en stark trea.

I wish I was read this story collection as a kid, rather than 'The Little Match Girl' and the likes by H.C. Andersen. This book is definitely dark, sad and beautiful. But more than anything, it offers a glimmer of hope for a better life. On top of that, the stories fills your head with beautiful imagery of the times long passed.Lindgren is the only author I have read who can write about children in poverty in a way that gives them a voice. It is truly as if *they* are telling the story. As if yo [...]

What an intriguing and surprisingly emotional children's book! The connecting of color to the emotions and experiences of the two orphan children create beautiful imagery and feeling within the reader. The illustrations are beautiful as well. I was initially hesitant to read this to my eight and six-year-old children (length, sadness), but they were immediately drawn in to the story and recognized the hope and joy at the end of the story. We even discussed if they could be in heaven. Overall, a [...]

I cried the whole time. I really love children, so reading about them suffering hurt me a lot. Having started it when I was little and then quit, I always thought the whole book was about the first story, which was about two children working and starving. Although, I don't believe all the children of the four stories died, reading it I had a feeling they all died for some reason. Maybe I read too much into it, but it was very touching. (view spoiler)[I gathered that the children from the first s [...]

Orphaned, afraid and hungry, Anna and Matthew found a farmer who would house and feed them in return for their labor. Sadly, there was an excess of labor, and minimum food in return.Sadly, each day Anna thinks of death and worries if she will make it through yet one more season of the year. It is bitter cold in the winter, but they long for this season because they can go to school for a few short weeks and escape the farmer.Bullied in school because of their poverty, they sit together in a corn [...]

Langgeleden, in de dagen van de armoede, waren twee kleine kinderen alleen op de wereld achtergebleven. Maar kinderen kunnen niet alleen zijn, iemand moet voor ze zorgen. Daarom kamen Mattias en Anna van de Zonneweide in huis bij de boer uit Mira. Hij name ze niet in huis omdat ze zo hulpeloos waren en zo wanhopig van verdriet om hun dode moeder, nee, de boer nam de kinderen in huis omdat hij ze goed kon gebruiken. Kinderen handen kunnen nuttig werk doen, als je er maar voor zorgt dat ze geen bo [...]

Definitely a book for older students, 5th grade perhaps. It had a lot of writing on the pages. It's about children who have lost their parents and are now living with a farmer who only needs them for their work. the children find a happier place to live in the end of the book. The children LOVE school!

I think this book must have been written originally in a different language, for there were a few parts that were just a bit off. The story was very long, and parts of it were very dark and sad that I would never want to read this at a story time. The fantasy world was kind of hard for me to believe, but then, so was the whole Pippi Longstocking character--who was created by this book's author.

I would have given this book a 4 star if it wasn't so blasted LONG!!! The story starts out a little sad and then it gets happier and then it gets sad again and THEN it gets happy. I was a lovely story that I wish could have been about 15 pages shorter. I guess when you translate a book from Swedish into English things may be lost in translation. over all a nice book! :-D

This book is by an author that I adore but it struck a deep chord with me, not only because of the significance that red birds play in my family and our history, but with the themes involved. This is a precious story that will make your heart sigh. See if you can find a copy and read it to the first wee one you can find!

This was a rather sad book. Reminded me of The Little Match Girl but not as direct--more allegorical. But I think sometimes kids need a sad tale of two, just to get them thinking. Despite it's length my kids listened attentively.

This is a rather different Lindgren than any others I've read, but along with Children of the Noisy Village, it's my favourite Lindgren book, even though in general I didn't like fairy-tale-y stuff growing up.
