For The Birds

This charming Russian folk art bird house 
found while I was preparing to illustrate
The Little Snowgirl.
An enchanting home for any little bird that fit 
through the hole under her chin. 

 Pavel, the Woodcarver, made one of his own.
Then the birdhouse stood outside his and 
Caterina's house and a bird moved in.
None of this is in the written story. 
Something to entertain myself and maybe
the reader.
I made these "Little Snowgirl" matrioshka dolls.
They go with me on school visits. 
Starting with Pavel, the children like 
to guess who is the next doll nested inside. 

The last 2 are the hardest to guess. 
The birdhouse and the little bird.
