Mother Earth’s Children (1914) Children’s Book

Another posting from my Daddy’s boyhood library…

Mother Earth’s Children, The Frolics of the Fruits and Vegetables

This is a sweet little book about fruits, vegetables, nuts, and grains.  All drawn up like little people.  Some are just too adorable, some elegant, and then others are bizarre, and even a little frightening.  Children’s books were just different in those days lol.

Written by Elizabeth Gordon, and illustrated by M. T. Ross.  A singular date of 1914.

Please peruse, and enjoy, as I did as a child, meeting Mother Earth’s Children!
