Baboushka and the Three Kings

In December I told the story of Baboushka and The Three Kings.  It’s a Russian folktale about an old woman who, declining to accompany the Three Kings as they followed the star in search of the Babe and failing to find Him on her own, each year renews her endless search.

It’s a simple story beautifully illustrated with pictures done in only five colours. These have the translucence feel of stained glass windows and Byzantine icons.

After the storytelling we sang some Christmas carols and made some Christmas cards.

Here are the real Three Kings that arrived in Barcelona on 5th January, 2011
