My First Root Children by Sibylle von Olfers

 All through winter the root children sleep underground. When spring comes Mother Nature wakes them up, and they get ready to go outside into the sunshine with the beetles, bees and ladybirds. They play in the forest with the butterflies. In summer they dance in the meadow and by the stream. When autumn comes and the cold wind starts to blow, Mother Earth calls them back underground to go to sleep for the winter.

The classic, seasonal Story of the Root Children is presented for the first time as a boardbook for very young children. The overall story remains the same, but the language has been simplified. All of the beautiful illustrations from the original picture book are included, with some adapted sympathetically to fit the new format.

Sibylle von Olfers (1881-1916) uses a blend of natural observation and simple design that critics have compared to the works of Kate Greenaway and Elsa Beskow.
