General Note: Originally published in German as 'Etwas von den Wurzelkindern,' 1906.
Name of translator not listed.
Summary, etc.: An enchanting tale of the wildflower root-children, who spend the winter asleep deep underground in the care of wise Mother Earth. When spring comes they wake up, sew new gowns and capes, clean and paint the beetles and bugs, and climb out into the lovely warm spring sunshine. After playing in the fields and meadows all summer, Mother Earth welcomes back to their home underground. The delicate and charming watercolor paintings illustrate the bounty and beauty of the seasons.
