    After being rather disappointed with the text the translation, or rather the so called translation of The Story of the Root Children, I am glad to have been quite pleasantly surprised with and by both the text and the quilted illustrations of Mother Earth and Her Children A Quilted Fairy Tale I have to admit that while the original illustrations by Sibylle von Olfers will always remain a personal favourite, I was and continue to be wowed and impressed by Sieglinde Schoen Smith s quiltwork and ve [...]

    Sibylle von Olfers Etwas von den Wurzelkindern is one of my all time favourite picture books I loved this book as a child and have fond memories of both of my grandmothers reading it to me , and I still love both the simple, poetic text and the luminous Jugendstil illustrations Sibylle von Olfers masterpiece represents a glowing, loving homage to spring, youth, rebirth, joy, and the loving care Mother Earth gives to all For a picture book originally published in 1906, this in my humble opinion t [...]

    I read this version, illustrated by Sieglinde Schoen Smith, in the form of a quilt that she made The original book appears to have an edition illustrated by the author This edition is translated by Jack Zipes and from what I ve read, it s also not the full original text that Sibylle von Olfers wrote over a century ago I am curious about the other edition.The quilt is lovely, especially the last frame that shows the entire pattern I do love quilts and this has such a detailed pattern The book des [...]

    The incredible illustrations in this book are details of a modern quilt inspired by Sibylle von Olfers classic storybook Mother Earth and Her Children This book was inspired by the quilt which explores the changing of the seasons and lightly talks about the circle of life When Mother Earth calls her children to prepare for spring, the earthly children come and stretch before they make themselves beautiful and ready for the season to change They dust off the bumblebees, scrub the beetles, paint b [...]

    What a beautiful story Written as a German tale in 1906, Sieglinde Schoen Smith retells it in the beauty of quilt.The illustrations are of the actual quilt that Ms Smith created from this precious tale of Mother Earth, her children, and the seasons of the year.

    The Story of the Root Children What a wonderful little book I found an online edition, complete with artwork, at childrenslibrary Unfortunately it was in the original German so I had my husband translate it for me over the phone while he was out of town for work what a fabulous guy It s difficult to translate poetry, so I m sure I missed out on some of the magic, but I picked up the gist of the story The root children are little flowers and weeds whom Mother Earth awakens to prepare for spring c [...]

    This is a mini version of Sibylle von Olfers classic story, The Root Children The Story of the Root Children is Sibylle von Olfers 1881 1916 best known work Her blend of natural observation and use of simple design has led to comparisons with Kate Greenaway and Elsa Beskow.All through the winter the Root Children are asleep underground, but when spring comes Mother Nature wakes them up Then the Root Children are busy cleaning and painting the beetles and bugs When summer comes they play in the f [...]

    I enjoyed the illustrations in Mother Earth and Her Children A Quilted Fairy Tale I haven t read the original version and hope to someday if it is ever translated fully into English I did not care much for the rhyming text in this version It didn t flow very well, especially as a read aloud I understand this was a shorter version than the original I liked the additional informative text in the back of the book.

    This is a retelling of an old German folk tale, with illustrations that are pictures of a quilt created based on the story The story line is a cute one about the changing seasons, involving little children called root children in the German original who sleep through the winter and are woken in the spring by Mother Nature The quilt is amazingly intricate and well done But I just didn t see the story grabbing current children.

    Loved the illustrations and the words that accompany them book makes me feel magical and ready to go off to dreamland The little ones are woken up and work hard at making clothes so much to do, so little time before spring arrives The book is also about the four seasons What a delightful book, with gorgeous illustrations of the little ones, as well as of nature A sure delight for storytime

    Genre Fairy TaleThis is an incredible book mainly for its art work It is all done in quilting and the detail is amazing It is absolutely stunning The story is about Mother Earth s little cherubs who help with the work to get summer going like painting the beetles and brushing the bees The story is told in verse and is simple and childlike and matches the artwork beautifully.

    Lovely verse tells the story of the root children who array themselves in the various colors of flowers for spring and summer, and then are called back to mother earth as the autumn winds begin to blow The pictures are photographs of an amazing hand embroidered quilt depicting this story of nature Beautiful

    The story is nice, but I wonder what i would be like in the Original German I speak a little German I wonder if the translation is close Anyways, the story is simple and lovely and I think that is what Sibylle Von Olfers was trying to convey

    Something kind of special about this book But may appeal to adults than kids with its sense of style.
