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.
