Ollie's Ski Trip by Elsa Beskow
Six year old Ollie tries out his first set of skis in the woods near his home. He runs into some winter characters along the way - Jack Frost, King Winter and Mrs. Thaw. He ends up spending this day with Jack Frost and sees all the winter activities happening behind the scenes. Someone has to make all those skates, tobaggans, ski boots, and warm winter socks! Ollie then gets to ski, skate and build a snowman. Jack Frost even harnesses a reindeer to bring Ollie home on his skis. When Christmas comes, Ollie knows that Jack Frost had paid him a visit! A delightful story - even with Mrs. Thaw doing her thing at the end!
