Tato, hurry! Everyone is already there. 

It’s rug-washing day! Little Tato sneaks a few cherry plums before racing off to help Bábo—her grandmother—with a favorite chore. Tato is big enough to really help now.

Bounce clouds! Rainbows!

When the hose drenches everyone and the chickens get out, is Tato big enough to save the day?

This celebration of a childhood ritual invites the reader to spend a day full of fun and love with an Armenian family.
