The Story of the Root Children
The Story of the Root Children by Sibylle von Olfers (1881-1916)
This is a classic story of the changing seasons. The root children spend the winter asleep. When spring comes, they wake, sew themselves new gowns, and clean and paint the beetles and bugs. All summer they play in fields, ponds and meadows before returning in the autumn to Mother Earth, who welcomes them home and puts them to bed once more.
From the author of The Story of the Wind Children and The Story of the Snow Children, here is another classic children's story with beautiful illustrations in the Art Nouveau style.
We love the books by Sibylle von Olfers because they are timeless they engage children's imaginations in simple pleasures.
