‘We need the literature of other countries to expand our
horizons and stimulate our ideas. Without it, we are not only
diminished, we are starved’

Goldie at the Farm
by Martha Sandwall-Bergstrom
Age Range: 6-8
In this sequel to Goldie at the Orphanage, Goldie is bought by a farmer to be a maid to his family. Although the family treats her well there are lots of chores and she longs to go to school like the other children. Martha Sandwall-Bergström based this story on her own experiences of growing up as a young girl in a poor area of Sweden. Eva Stålsjö’s beautiful, lively watercolour illustrations complement this heart-warming story.
