Babushka Baba Yaga was lonely. She didn't have any grandsons. She had to hear every babushka talking about their grandsons. One day a woman didn't know who was going to babysit her baby. Babushka baba yaga had a plan. She was going to dress up like a babushka and take care of the child. If you want to find out what happened next, read the book.

I think that the book Babushka baba yaga is a great book. It's a great book and funny because Babushka has big nails and she has tall ears. Also, the characters are from different cultures. My favorite part is when Babushka baba yaga saves the child from the wolves and they celebrate. I like Babushka baba yaga because she creates a lot of action in the story.

I recommend this book to people who like to read books. Babushka baba yaga is a funny and a great book. People could learn words from Russia like babushka, that means grandmother. I think there are more words that you could learn. That's why I recommend this book.
