She also illustrated editions of Johanna Spyri's 'Heidi' (1921) and Mary Mapes Dodge's 'Hans Brinker or the Silver Skates' (with Edna Cooke, 1918). She was acclaimed as one of "the very best artists" for children.
She wrote and illustrated 'The Baby's Record Through the First Year in Song and Story' (1928), and compiled and illustrated 'Weather Signs and Rhymes' (1931). She also illustrated textbooks for children, mainly readers for younger children.
