We speak "Swenglish" in our home now, a unique mix of English and Swedish. ~ Elisa Heiken
123 Like a Swede was inspired by Elisa Heiken's daughter, who is part of a bilingual household.
After conducting a challenging search for bilingual books that represented both languages spoken at home, Elisa took it upon herself to create the book she could not find.
