My Daily Reading Goal with A Little Mouse Named Kalle Mus

One of the items on my weekly goal for learning Swedish is daily reading. At my level of proficiency, I have selected a fun children's book titled 365 korta godnattsagor för hela året (365 Short Bedtime Stories for the Whole Year). I bought the book at Akademibokhandeln, my favorite bookshop in Sweden!

I'll be hanging out with Kalle (the mouse), Hoppsan (the rabbit), Plums (the frog) and Mulle (the mole) for a whole year from 1st January to 31st December. They are four friends who are always having fun together and I'm excited to be following them on their daily adventures!

In addition to the wonderful little guys, there also many interesting and crazy adults who live in the small village of the forest. Check out borgmästare (Mayor) Uggla who is nuts about buns, Ida Igelkott the champion baker, Herr Knapps the tailor, and many more.

I ended 2017 with Kalle Mus and his friends, and start from the beginning on 1 January 2018. Happy reading!
