Other people's children with text and 32 watercolors by Carl Larsson depicting children other than his own, printed and published in 1913. Reprint 2006, 88 pages.

Carl and Karin were very good friends with Anders and Emma Zorn. Carl and Karin's youngest daughter Kersti, born in 1896, came to live with her friends Anders and Emma Zorn in Mora from 1913 for a while to rest up after being ill with lung problems. Kersti, who was artistically inclined, also sometimes acted as a drawing teacher at the folk high school in Mora when Anders was traveling. Carl and Karin greatly appreciated Emma's kindness and care and Carl wrote this dedication in Other people's children: "Emma Zorn Her, who has a mother's heart for the children of others, is dedicated to this picture book."
