Synopsis

Babushka lives on her own in a cottage where everything is as neat as a pin. But she is so busy cleaning and polishing that she hardly notices the miraculous events going on around her. Then a mysterious dream leads her to put her daily worries aside and venture out to find a special baby. On her journey, she learns that the more you give away in love, the more you will receive. Readers of all ages and beliefs will be charmed and captivated by this poignant Russian folk tale. Children young and old will adore Sophie Fatus's beautiful folk-art illustrations of flowy ethereal angels, friendly wide-eyed characters wearing warm colorful shawls and quirky animals along Babushka's path.
