'Nothing could date this stunningly illustrated century-old book telling the story of the seasons ... Children are enchanted by images like the root children painting a line of ladybirds with pots of red and black paint. Sibylle von Olfers' careful drawings depict Nature scenes halfway between imagination and reality.' -- Juno Magazine, Top Ten Children's Books
About the Author
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.

The illustrations are beautiful, the words gentle.
Am very satisfied with this enchanting book, a modern yet ageless fairy tale about Mother Earth, the seasons, and the place of little children in this life setting.
Waldorf school approved- which, in itself, is a certification of quality reading to raise a respectful child.
