Format: Library Binding
Although an adult, I still enjoy reading children's books, as you can see from some of my previous reviews. I found this book to be educational and very interesting, and believe that children will enjoy learning from it.
In Colors of Russia, Ms. Zemlicka uses different colors to convey a variety of facts about Russia. For example, the color orange tells us about the Siberian tiger, how it's the world's largest cat and is on the verge of extinction. To acquaint yourself and your child with Russia I highly recommend this exceptional book.

5 of 5 people found the following review helpful By Adrienne E. Bashista on November 16, 2006
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is a beautiful little paperback book that teaches children about various aspects of the Russian culture (the Alexander palace in Saint Petersburg (yellow), the red flag of the Communist party - as well as some history since then, the blue of Lake Baikul, the black of caviar, the gold of the Russian Orthodox church, etc.).

One thing that's nice about this book is that the Russian people portrayed are of diverse ethnic heritage. The people on the "White" page - white for snow - are Chukchis, indigenous people who live in Siberia. And on the green page, which is green for the grass on the steppes, a Scythian (one of the nomadic tribes) is pictured riding a horse. Since there are so many ethnicities in Russia it's wonderful to see a children's book that acknowledges it.

This book was purchased for my grandchildren, both adopted from Russia. They will not receive it. Guess I'll give it away to be read by children who have no emotional interest in Russia. The tone of the book is too negative. Yellow is for the palace where Anastasia lived and played and could make anyone smile. She and her family were killed. Red is for communism. It didn't work but Russians "have not lost hope for a better future." Even the weather -- not that Russians enjoy their cold weather sports but "they make the best" of the weather with sports. Someday our grandchildren will learn more about the land of their birth and the problems the Russian people have faced. However, at elementary school age, they don't need to hear the worst first.

This is a great little book. Both my daughters are from Russia and usually bring this book in for international day at school.
