Editorial Reviews

From the Author

A distinguishing feature of this book is that texts are written specifically for children because based on kid's subjects and dreamlike topics. In this book you will meet a kind animal who has three legs and five arms and a shining star in his forehead; you will learn about a girl who was made of snow; you will read about a boy who didn't like shopping; you will learn about a young boy who wanted to become a magician but didn't like to study;   and even find simple recipes to cook Russian food.  
A
few suggestions - Вы можете использовать эту книгу просто дляразвития навыков чтения  вашего ребёнка. 
Кроме того, вы можете поговорить о русской грамматике(например, "папа идёт на работу, дети идут в парк, я иду в магазин
стр8  или "лягушка прыгнула в лужу; вода в луже тёплая"стр14).  Рассказ о мальчике, который не любит класть вещи на место, иллюстрирует использование  слов в родительном падеже - стр 45. Рассказ "Не люблю магазины" посвяшен выражению "I don't have..."- стр. 26. 
Если ребёнок не готов для изучения грамматики, пусть просто начнёт читать. Например, рассказ о Барунчике поможет ему выучить названия частей тела, цвета, названия еды и напитков, выражение "
he has....".   Рассказ "Корова и кошка" позволит запомнить выражения " I will give you...", " She came and said: Hello!", и несколько распространённых глаголов, таких как  жить, сказать, попросить, побежать, ответить, дать, прийти - стр. 17).  Вы также можете обратить внимание ребёнка на две хитрые буквы - Е и Ё; они хоть и разные, но в настоящих книгах они обозначаются одной единственной буквой Е. Поэтому важно запомнить не только написание слова, но и его звучание - поёт или поет?, несёт или несет? Вы можете поговорить об интересной особенности русского языка - об уменьшительно-ласкательной форме слов - большой ёж несёт лист и гриб, а маленький ёжик несёт листок и грибок стр. 10. Приятных вам уроков!

While the idea of the book is great (simple texts for the beginning readers), the actual content of the book seems not be thought over carefully.
The sentences often are too long, with too many punctuation marks: "А вот кот идет по дороге, посмотри, какой хвост красивый у кота, большой, пушистый!" (Page 14)
Another frustrating detail: sometime the author uses a letter "Ё" and sometimes not. For example, there are two words besides each other in the sentence (page 10): "Ёжик несет". Well, my child, who is learning Russian as a Foreign language, reads it as it written... and it is wrong.
And finally, there are few typos in the texts: "Мальчик Саша очень хороший. Она всегда слушает маму и папу." (Page 45). Do I need to comment on this one?

There is not a big choice of books for children learning Russian as a Foreign language in the US (please share the info if you know where get good RFL books for children). Naturally, I was excited when I ordered this book.
My daughter did read all the texts; she finished the book. I had to draw dots above letter "E" to make it "Ё", I manually divided long sentences into two and three short ones, so my child could better understand the meaning of the sentnence. Would I recommend it? ... When you do not have a choice, maybe... But I personally am not considering any more purchases from this author.

Very readable, and it was cool to read some "childish" words. What I mean is... Like in English we say things like "go nite nite" and "mommy" rather than "go to sleep" and "mother". This book has a lot of baby talk in it... In fact, sometimes it makes it more challenging and interesting to read, for this reason !

I'm thrilled to find such a great book! There are so few Russian language books available that are not dry, boring textbooks - and almost none designed specifically for children. The texts are interesting and engaging, so kids can follow the stories even if they don't understand every word. My daughters (9 & 13) love this book and the activities book, and I like that it can be used again and again as you learn more about the language. It can be used simply for translation and reading exercises, but you can also go back to texts you have already translated to learn and practice using many forms of Russian grammar: conjugation, plural forms, cases, etc. I think that we will use this book again and again as our Russian language skills improve. I would definitely recommend this book to anyone with children learning Russian, but also for adults - I am also a Russian language student and I love this book!

My husband is using it to help teach our girls to perfect their Russian. He likes the book a lot (and he is very picky, so it says a lot)
