Bábo : a tale of Armenian rug-washing day / Astrid Kamalyan ; illustrated by Anait Semirdzhyan.

Kamalyan, Astrid, (author.). Semirdzhyan, Anait, (illustrator.).


Tato, hurry! Everyone is already there. It's rug-washing day! Little Tato sneaks a few cherry plums before racing off to help Bábo--her grandmother--with a favorite chore. Tato is big enough to really help now. "Bounce clouds!" "Rainbows!" When the hose drenches everyone and the chickens get out, can Tato save the day? This celebration of a childhood ritual shows a day full of fun and love with an Armenian family. -- Provided by publisher.
