From Mother to Mother
From generation to generation, and with the help of matryoshka, a mother traces her child’s ancestry.
Looking back at Baby’s lineage, Mother describes how long, long, long, long ago, the mother of the mother of the mother of her mom welcomed to the family the mother of the mother of her mom. And so it goes, tracing Baby’s ancestors through to the present day. Russian nesting dolls (matryoshka) illustrated on each spread get smaller with each turn. Each is a different colour, decorated with animals, flowers, and other nature-based items.
