First published in Germany in 1906, this charming fantasy about the children who live, all winter, beneath the earth, will answer many a child's query about how spring comes about each year. From the first warming of the earth, the Root girls begin to make spring dresses for themselves, while the Root boys shine up and paint all the insects. The Earth Mother bids them farewell when it is warm enough for them to go above ground, and after their summer's frolic, welcomes them home when winter again draws near. That this is old-fashioned is no strike against it, due to the appeal of the large size and endearing pictures, with a delicacy that recalls the works of Kate Greenaway. Ages 5-up.
