Kamalyan, Astrid, (author.). Semirdzhyan, Anait, (illustrator.).

"Little Tato sneaks a few cherry plums before racing off to help Bábo--her grandmother--with a favorite chore. Each year Tato looks forward to washing the family rugs. With bubbles and suds floating like clouds and snowflakes, Tato and her siblings help Bábo scrub the rugs clean. With lively text and vivid illustrations, Astrid Kamalyan brings her charming childhood memories to life by inviting young readers to spend a day full of fun and love with an Armenian family" -- Publisher's description.
