Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Little Natasha can't leave her Babushka--Russian grandmother--alone: while Babushka methodically attempts to finish her laundry and livestock-feeding, the impatient girl always has another, more urgent agenda. When Babushka goes out, she presents her granddaughter with her own doll from her childhood. Tasha discovers the meaning of peskiness when the doll comes to life and makes her jump through hoops, entertaining her every minute. By the time Babushka returns from her shopping expedition, Tasha is exhausted from her afternoon with a most demanding playmate. Polacco's ( Thunder Cake ; The Keeping Quilt ) pencil illustrations are vibrant with the addition of marker colors and paint, from the large-featured grandmother to the straggly-haired Tasha to the expressive collection of barnyard goats. Many overeager youngsters may well identify with this engaging, well - told tale. Ages 3-6. (Sept.)
School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 1-- When Natasha wants something, she wants it now --not after her grandmother, Babushka, has finished her chores. Babushka gets tired of this attitude, and finally goes off to the market, leaving Natasha to play with a special doll that she keeps on a high shelf. The doll comes to life and subjects Natasha to the same sort of insistent whining that Natasha used on Babushka. The girl learns her lesson and turns out ``to be quite nice after all.'' This pedantic story is made more acceptable by Polacco's beautiful illustrations. Her expressive, Old World figures, bright colors, and charming details of a house and farm in Russia will delight readers, even if predictability makes the story less enticing than the pictures. --JoAnn Rees, Sunnyvale Public Library, CA

    Teaches kids a lesson

    What little girl wouldn't want her doll to come to life? Will the impatient Natasha gets her just desserts when her Babushka's old doll starts to move and talk? Everything that Natasha wants to do with her Babushka, the doll coaxes her into doing. The doll, a demanding little thing, gets Natasha to play with her and do whatever she wants. This story Babushka's Doll, by Patricia Polacco and published in 1990 by Aladdin Paperbacks, can definitely teach children the lesson of patience and is interestingly enough a tale about a child, a grandmother, and a doll.
    The illustrations are colorful and delightfully energetic. The pictures are done in bright lively colors. Some scenes practically leap of the pages. Each picture depicts Natasha and the doll as they play and fool around. The pictures as well as the writings explore the world of a child. Grownups have responsibilities that they must attend to and cannot always play like children. So children who want to play with their elders must wait their turn. Natasha learns this lesson the hard way and Babushka is there to comfort her after her experience with a doll that just like her has to be taken care of because it cannot take care of itself.
