A Gift for Mamma by Esther Hautzig

A Gift for Mama

By Esther Hautzig
Level 3

This is a gentle book about a Russian girl who wants to buy her mother a gift for Mother’s Day instead of making one, like she always has in the past. She makes a plan to earn money and works hard. The story is not exciting and may not hold the attention of children not used to more gentle, slow-moving stories.
