Description
 
Arthur Scholey (au); Helen Cann (il). This beautifully illustrated retelling of a folktale blends the story of Christmas with the tradition of gift giving. Everyone in the village is bubbling with excitement, eager for news about the new star in the sky, everyone but old Baboushka -- busy sweeping, scouring, & polishing her house. When 3 strangers arrive, following the star in search of a new baby king, Baboushka offers them hospitality. The 3 kings bid her join their quest, but how can she? Who will keep house? What will she bring? When at last Baboushka follows, bearing gifts for the baby, she arrives too late. Some say Baboushka continues her search to this very day, & at Christmas -- when she sees a sleeping child & hears of good deeds -- she will leave a toy from her basket, just in case.
