My First Root Children

by Sibylle Von Olfers

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publishers Weekly
Based on German author/illustrator von Olfer’s The Story of the Root Children, published in 1906, this board book follows a group of mop-haired “root children,” who live underground with Mother Nature, as they get ready for spring, then venture aboveground to frolic until winter returns. The details of the children’s subterranean life (they paint ladybugs and brush bumblebees to prepare them for spring) and the delicate art nouveau details of von Olfers’s artwork should entice kids and parents with their old-fashioned charms. Ages 1�3. (June)
