my granddaughter… well, she just loved this book and practically gulped up! She could relate to its stories, characters and liked the illustrations, all of which we've spent some time discussing afterwards. Our family is bi-linqual, however, my granddaughter, who speaks both languages, reads in English only. But now, having there stories in both languages in the same book, got her very interested in improving her reading in Russian. As such, I think that this idea is a very clever way to stimulate kids from bi-linqual families to learn language of their ancestors, or to give kids from any ethnic background an incentive to learn Russian or another language for that matter. Needless to say, this book now has a prominent place on our bookshelf. I plan to read it to my younger granddaughter when she gets a little older. I also strongly recommend this book to other parents and grandparents… and it certainly belongs to school libraries.
And last but not least, I'd like to thank the author for such wonderful book and wish her very best in her creative pursuits!
Also, these stories might be an excellent source for English only speaking kids who want to learn Russian as a foreign language.
I strongly recommend this book for kids to enjoy, getting books back to their lives. Nella Turovets, Philadeiphia, PA.
