The Story of the Root Children by Sibylle Von Olfers
The root children spend the winter asleep. When spring comes, they awake, sew new gowns, and clean and paint the beetles and bugs. All summer, they play in tfields, ponds and meadows before returning in the autumn to Mother Earth, who welcomes them and puts them to bed again.
