Description

 

Dawn Casey’s tender retelling of the much-loved Russian tale Babushka is a Christmas classic.

“Babushka was always busy. She was forever scrubbing and sweeping, washing and wiping, dusting and polishing. Her little house was neat as a pin.”

Babushka’s domestic activities are interrupted one evening by a knock on the door. When she opens the door, Babushka is confronted by three mysterious travelers looking for food and shelter. She really has no choice and invites them in, adding “Only, please, do wipe your feet.” However, after the travelers finally depart, things for Babushka have changed inexplicably. She questions everything about her life and decides to do something very surprising.

The pages of this picture book glow magically with Amanda Hall’s Russian fairy tale landscapes rendered in soft, snowy colors. Babushka’s story opens our hearts to the silence and beauty to be felt when we simply stop and listen.
