Product description


Guadalupe H, Librarian: 5*****

"This story gently introduces young readers to the inevitable existential crisis that most people experience at some point in their life. One wonders about the meaning of life and how one can fulfill such a purpose. The illustrations contribute to the story like a wind guiding someone to a destination. The language is appropriate and not challenging for its target audience. Ultimately, the creative use of the Babushka in this story is employed promoting life lessons that promote inner growth for middle grade readers."

Olivia S, Reviewer 4.5****

I've always been fascinated by babushka dolls and love how beautiful they are designed and painted. This story follows the babushka which are made up of five women each with their own personalities. The outer layer is beautiful, the next layer is wealth, then the talented babushka, followed by the wise babushka, and finally the innermost babushka and the guiding one, the loving babushka. Each of the babushka set out to discover their purpose in life. I think this book is perfect to read to children. Within it you will find many valuable lessons on self-worth, helping others, outer appearances and most importantly, that you cannot have one 'main' characteristic that defines your whole personality. I loved how it is the innermost babushka of love that guides the other babushka dolls and ultimately brings them together again.

Sonali A, Reviewer 5****

This is such a lovely book! ...perfect for children to find purpose in their life. It has valuable lessons. Complex themes simplified in a lovely story. I love the illustrations. It will be easy for little ones to connect with the characters and the story. It is so full of hope. Teaches no problem is too big. Every problem can be overcome. Teaches how everyone is unique and have different qualities. Steeped in tradition. An engaging read. Very well written and heartwarming. I definitely recommend it.

Erin H, Librarian 5****

Completely heart warming with a soul steeped in tradition, there is much to share and enjoy with this beautifully illustrated story. Likely to engage and enchant readers, young and old.

Jillian C, Reviewer - 4****

The Story of Babushka was such a quick, charming read. The artwork was what drew me in, but the story is what made me stay. It's really easy to follow and not a story that I've seen before, so it was super enjoyable! The story is honestly quite heartwarming and full of good life lessons, and I think this would make a great read for students and kids, either to read with someone or by themselves. I even really enjoyed it myself, so I'd also recommend this to anyone who is looking for a charming, gorgeously illustrated, and heartwarming story.

Sierra D, Educator 4****

"Such a heartwarming story that has a lot of great lessons for children to learn from and enjoy."

Kathleen M, Reviewer 4****

What a delightful story. Very well written and illustrated. I loved the tales and the lessons each taught.

Joy K, Educator 4****

This book has a lot of complex themes that will interest young readers. The book talks about how people can be multi-faceted and how individuals have layers to their personalities. Kids will probably be familiar with Russian nesting dolls so it will be easy for them to connect with the story. The illustrations are absolutely beautiful. They are colourful, playful, and inviting. If I still taught in a classroom with younger students, I would share this book in a reading circle.
