Olka and Her Blue Parasol is an illustrated children's book based on a Yiddish poem by Kadya Molodowsky. Although the story is set in the past in Eastern Europe, Olka is a character that bridges time and culture.
Olka has a lot of chores to do and no time for fun. Or so her parents keep telling her. But Olka uses her imagination and her special blue parasol to create magical experiences that let her play. Her efforts to balance a life of hard work with a child's exuberance and playfulness will delight young readers and those who read to them.
Children will enjoy the lovely illustrations as well as reading along with the repetitive phrases in the story. Recommended for ages three to six.
