Children Book Review: The Totem

Children Book Review:: The Tomten By Astrid Lindgren , Have you listened to the whispers of the Totem?

We are really enjoying April's theme of Mystical and Magical creatures. The Tomten By Astrid Lindgren is a wonderful story introducing us to the Totem providing a magical reminder that someone is always making us safe during the winter nights.

Although, the little Totem might have been disappointed this winter here in NY. It seems winter took a break this year. We had no big snow falls in the lower NY region of Long Island.

We figured the TOTEM's journey this year would have been a quick reminder that we were still in winter hahaha! We will definitely add this to our bookshelf and read every year.

A very nice tradition to have with my son. And a nice reminder that we are always safe during the cold dark nights.

I hope you are able to get a copy from your local library or join our SHARE A BOOK program and receive a FREE copy. Let us know if you see those tiny footprints next winter.

Keep turning those pages.... Happy Reading, Jennifer
