Mother Earth and Her Children by Sibylle von Olfers

Book Description

As Spring approaches, Mother Earth wakes her sleepy children, deep below the earth, the children yawn and stretch. Soon their hands are busy, stitching new clothes in bright spring colours. The dust of the bumblebees, scrub the beetles and paint splendid new coats on the ladybirds. The children jubilantly emerge from the earth where they become the flowers of Spring. In rhyming verse and vibrant illustrations, this entrancing story touches on such themes as the rejuvenation and passing of the seasons, helping children understand the circle of life.
