A heart-warming and timeless retelling of a traditional Russian folk tale filled with beautiful illustrations from an award-winning artist.

Babushka is busy tidying her house when three unexpected guests arrive telling her they are looking for a baby, a new born king. When they leave Babushka stays behind cleaning and tidying, and preparing a gift for the baby. Next morning when she starts to follow the men she finds that the snow has covered their tracks and she doesn't know which way to go. But she keeps on searching, and as she goes she gives a gift from her basket to every child she passes who is hungry, or cold, or has no toys. With beautiful illustrations evoking folk art traditions and sensitive storytelling, Babushka reminds us that nothing is more important during the Christmas season than taking the time to show love for one another.
