An illustrator, designer, and writer of children's books, Patricia Polacco comes from a family of storytellers, poets, dirt farmers, teachers, and artists. They came from many parts of the world, but mainly Russia. She is a member of the Center of U.S..S.S.R. Initiatives and her stories for children, often with a Russian theme, have been widely praised. Rechenka's Eggs received the International Reading Association Award, and The Keeping Quilt, winner of the Sydney Taylor Book Award, was recommended by School Library Journal for its "richly detailed" and "beautifully conceived" illustrations (SLJ starred review). She lives in Oakland, California with her husband and two children.From Publishers 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.
