More Babas Please by Marion Mutala, featuring a Ukrainian baba and her granddaughter, is a charming story told in rhyming verse that highlights all the ways grandmothers share their love and care for their grandchildren. Illustrations are by Otha Tkachenko.
Babas are the best! The love of a grandmother is something special. Whether she makes favourite meals, sings songs, plays games, or simply cuddles her grandchildren on her lap, she is always sharing her love.
