This retelling of a Russian Folktale was very well done. Babushka is a very busy old woman who is visited by the Three Kings or Wisemen. They tell her about the birth of the baby and ask if she wants to go with them, but she says she is too busy. After cleaning up after them, she decides to go and find the baby. She packs a basket with gifts of toys, food, and blankets and sets off. She never finds the baby, but along her journey she finds people who need her gifts and she gives them to those in need. She continues to journey giving gifts today as her basket never empties. The illustrations are wonderful, colourful and vibrant. This would be an excellent addition to any family's Christmas library as well as being useful in a unit of Christmas cultures and traditions around the world.

I received a copy of this book from netgalley in exchange for an honest review. ( )

Beautifully illustrated children's book about the legend of a kindly grandmother who brings gifts to those in need.

Great book to support diversity within the classroom! This book is very heart warming and encourages emotionally development as people should be nice to others.

Babushka is the tale of an old woman, who was so keen on having everything in her house tidy and proper, that when she has unexpected guests, she misses out on a once in a lifetime chance.

One day, when Babushka is again at her home and busy cleaning, there's a knock on her door and outside are three wise men. They are following a star and as they are tired, they kindly ask Babushka for food and a place to rest. The old woman is happy to oblige and when they sit together and share a meal, she learns, that the men are on their way to visit a newborn baby.
They call the child "The Prince of Peace" and in their luggage are presents for him. When they invite Babushka, to join them, she is too busy. To go with them without having washed her dishes? No way!

The following night, Babushka dreams of the child and regrets her decision to stay behind. When she wakes up the in morning, she fills her basket with delicious food and toys for the baby and is on her way, but she doesn't know, where to go.
The star isn't shining in the bright sunlight and the snow has covered the tracks of the three travelers. Still, she's determined to go and when she reaches the edge of the forest, there's a poor girl dressed in only a thin dress, shivering with cold. She hands the child a warm knitted shawl from her basket and this is the first of many acts of kindness on her long journey, which still lasts to this day, always handing toys to children and hoping, that she will find Baby Jesus one day.

The book is a beautiful retelling of a classic russian fairytale and the story is enhanced with colourful illustrations. Award winning illustrator Amanda Hall captures the russian feel of the story perfecly. Children will love the wonderfully detailed pictures, which sometimes have a really tranquil feel to them and seem to glow with light.
Babushka shows us, that we miss out on important things, if our life just consists of endless work and a lot of meaningless tasks. ( )
