Babushka and the Three Kings

In this quaint old Russian Christmas story, a Babushka is working hard when three kings, on their way to find the Child Christ, stop and ask for help in finding him.  The Babushka tells them that she cannot help them, but would be willing to go with them in the morning.  They regretfully press on, and Babushka thinks about her choice. The next morning she sets out to find the kings and the Child.  It is said that every year the children eagerly anticipate the Babushka as she continues to look for the Child, and the gifts that she leaves behind.

Great book depicting world culture and beliefs; appropriate for world history and geography as well as reading for young children
