Christening gift for Prince Oscar

The Christening gift from the Swedish Parliament and the Swedish Government for HRH Prince Oscar: Swedish children's books. The collection consists of books by new authors and books by well-known writers and illustrators. The books have mainly been published in more recent years and both large and small publishing houses are represented.

Children as well as their parents can enjoy both reading the stories aloud and reading them on their own. With this gift, we would like to draw attention to the knowledge, development and joy that exists in the world of books.

We hope that the Christening gift will encourage wonderful reading adventures along the winding pathways of text and pictures."
