Mother Earth's Children

Asparagus in early springCame up to hear the robins sing;When she peeped out her dress was white;It turned green in the sunshine bright.This 100-year-old collection of eighty-seven whimsical verses features color illustrations that will delight both the young and the young at heart. From apples to yams, the rhymes offer an alphabetical parade of kids dressed as fruits and vegetables: a blushing strawberry, a playful radish, carrot ladies with green-feathered hair, and other children of the earth.
