Barb,

I'm sorry to see that no one's come forward with any books for you.  I love Barbro Lindgren!  When my kids were toddlers they all loved the Sam books.  The stories are just straight out of a toddler's day to day life!  I think it's the lack of adult author editorializing that makes them so good.  Her uncomplicated language respects the natural focus of a child that age, the state of being rooted in the present moment: the dog is here, I've got a cookie, the dog took my cookie, now I'm not happy, I'm mad at the dog, here comes mom, she gives me another cookie, all better.  Anyway, I hope you find your books (we loved her book The Wild Baby too)-- good luck!

Cas
