Product Description

Mini version of the classic book!  All through the winter the Root Children are asleep underground, but when spring comes Mother Nature wakes them up. Then the Root Children are busy cleaning and painting the beetles and bugs.

‘Nothing could date this stunningly illustrated century-old book telling the story of the seasons … Children are enchanted by images like the root children painting a line of ladybirds with pots of red and black paint. Sibylle von Olfers’ careful drawings depict Nature scenes halfway between imagination and reality.’
— Juno Magazine, Top Ten Children’s Books

Author
The Story of the Root Children is Sibylle von Olfers’ (1881-1916) best known work. Her blend of natural observation and use of simple design has led to comparisons with Kate Greenaway and Elsa Beskow.
