Editorial Reviews

"The Story of Babushka is an endearing and  important fable for all ages. At times, the language has a poetic quality and I was swept away into what felt like a fairy-tale wonderland."
Kirsty Crommie, Blogger

Erin H, Librarian
"Completely heartwarming 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."
Olivia S, Reviewer 
"Perfect to read to children. You will find many valuable lessons on self-worth, helping others, and most importantly, that you cannot have one 'main' characteristic that defines your whole personality."
Jillian C, Reviewer
"I'd recommend this to anyone who is looking for a charming, gorgeously illustrated, and heartwarming story."
Joy K, Educator 
"This book has a lot of complex themes that will interest young readers. It talks about how people can be multi-faceted and how individuals have layers to their personalities. The illustrations are absolutely beautiful. They are colourful, playful, and inviting."
Libros H, Reviewer
"This book speaks to us of people and values that are important for building a fair and honest society in which we can all live together in harmony. It also speaks of diversity, of the different capacities and ways of adapting people to the different challenges that arise throughout life."
Kellen G, Educato

Monica E, Reviewer 
"I absolutely adore this book. It is deep and thoughtful. CRAFTY & CREATIVE! You will be thinking about the messages within long after you've finished this book."

From the Author

visit and goto the shop for free downloadable colouring pages to keep your kids entertained! Welcome to the wonderful world of Babushka. I'm Catherine Flores and I'm happy you have found my book. It has been quite a journey to get this far, one which began many years ago when "The Story of Babushka" was just an idea. When I first planned to write a story for children, a book launch was the last thing I would have thought of since it seemed an unreachable goal, my Everest; but this thought planted a seed, and to have my first children's book printed became my dream. By the time I finished writing the story, I had already met my partner who joined the project and took the lead and began translating it into English. Yes, I'm originally from Switzerland and my mother tongue is German. I was about 7 months pregnant at that point and after I gave birth to my son I regained the drive to get the book finished, so I could read the story to him. With my partner's support, we got polished the story and found an illustrator who began to create Babushka's world. It took 6 months, but eventually, we were happy with the results and got to detailing the illustrations one last time before signing them off and so the dream of holding my own book in my hands seemed so much closer. But now we wanted to go all-in, meaning giving more than just 100% and taking the project to a whole new level. We wanted to create more than just a book, but a whole world for "The Story of Babushka". As on every journey, there are many hurdles to overcome, especially when you are self-publishing without the funds and support of a large publishing house, so we took what we had and got to work. One of the big hurdles we had to overcome was the website. Our idea of a unique website, where the homepage becomes a playground for children with moving objects, took a lot of effort and time; from illustrating the initial page, to getting our wonderfully patient SVG-animation-artist Humberto Ventura to convert it to SVG and bring it to life. It was a trying few months, especially building the back-end of the site, shop, blog, and everything else from scratch and it ended up greatly delaying the release of the book, but being so close, we focused on our goal and eventually got there and in April of 2020 we printed the first 750 copies of the book! So, here we are. A dream is coming true and a perfect time to launch my book on the 29th of July 2020.Warmest of Greetings, Catherine Flores
