I really like this book. The message of this story is that you need to be patient. For example, Babushka was doing chores and Natasha wanted to play. Then the doll said, “I want to play now” ,well Natasha was doing the laundry. In the story Babushka’s words were always nice. Natasha’s words were mean and screaming and hurtful! That tells me that Natasha needed to learn patience. I like that the doll taught Natasha how to be patient. I liked the pictures because there is a lot of color and the pictures explain a lot to help you understand the book. You should read this book because it teaches Natasha manners.
