Through winter the root children sleep underground. When spring comes Mother Nature wakes them up, ready to go outside into the sunshine with the beetles, bees and ladybirds. The root children play in the forest with the butterflies in spring and dance in the meadow in the summer. When autumn comes and the cold wind starts to blow, Mother Earth calls them back underground to go to sleep for the winter.
Sibylle von Olfers' (1881-1916) classic story has been loved by generations of children.
