Mother Earth's Children; the frolics of the fruits and vegetables book

posted on: Monday, September 13, 2010

I recently found the online version of Mother Earth's Children and I seriously can't stop reading and smiling. This wonderful book from 1914 is pure delight. How can you not love this?

I want to read it with Enzo and try to convince him to give yams a try. Not sure he'll go for it but he will love the read. I think he'll find the temperament of the produce amusing.

Have you ever seen this book before? I'm going to have and search ebay for a copy.
Good thing for online archives. You can find the entire version of the book and read and even print it out for personal use. Thank you Beyond the Curtain for introducing me to such a delightful read.


  1. That is absolutely adorable! I love it!

  2. Thanks for sharing. I love the vintage illustrations. How cute would that yam be for a Halloween costume?

  3. Beth and You Are my Fave- I loved it too. I love the idea of the yam as a halloween costume.

  4. My grandma had figurines that looked just like these in her kitchen the whole time I was growing up. She has since passed and I wonder what became of them...
