Babushka by Dawn Casey

Babushka is busy tidying her house when three unexpected guests arrive telling her that they are looking for a baby, a new born king. When they leave Babushka stays behind cleaning and tidying, and preparing a gift for the baby. Next morning when she starts to follow the men she finds that the snow has covered their tracks and she doesn't know which way to go. But she keeps on searching, and as she goes she gives a gift from her basket to every child she passes who is hungry, or cold, or has no toys.
