The Children of Hat Cottage by Elsa Beskow is a charming story about getting help from unexpected places, with lively illustrations to bring the book to life. A story about three children and their mother live in a cottage shaped like a hat on a little island on the lake. One day their mother goes to the mainland to find yard to make the children new clothes. While she's away the children try to help around the house, but housework is much harder than they thought. They have great fun sweeping the chimney, but get very dirty so they wash their clothes in the lake, dry them over a fire, but fires are hard to control. Find out if Hat Cottage will still be standing by the time their mother comes home.
