The little snowgirl, an old Russian tale by Croll_ Carolyn
Story of a wood carver and they want a child of their own.
They watch the children build a snowman and his wife becomes very sad. The husband did make one outside and
he wakes his wife the next morning to see what he's done. She wants the snowgirl to speak and something so magical happens.
The wife wants the child to eat warm hot food and that's not possible for the snowgirl. Their Santa will never find her to leave gifts-because she is not IN her bed, inside the house.
There is more magic to come.....
I received this book from National Library Service for my BARD (Braille Audio Reading Device).
The Little Snowgirl is a retelling of "The Little Daughter of Snow" from Arthur Ransome's Old Peter's Russian Tales. This is a Christmas tale featuring Babouchka, the old woman of Christmas who parallel's her better known Italian counterpart Befana.
In the tale a woodcarver and his wife have everything they need and want except for a child. After seeing his wife's sadness as the caroling children dream of their gifts from Babouchka, the woodcarver makes a snow girl as a surprise to his wife. The snow girl comes to life, eating crushed ice and sleeping in the cold. Until the miracle of Christmas ...
The illustrations are very well matched in style to the story. This is a delightful book which I recommend.
