More About This Book

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Beth-Anne White
This is a non-narrative, nonfiction book about the cultural traditions in Russia. The book is clearly laid out with a contents page at the beginning and a glossary and index at the end. Each two-page spread introduces another cultural aspect of Russia that includes "Did You Know?" fact spotlights as well as photographs to show the reader what the tradition actually looks like. The photographs are a highlight for this text because they allow the reader to see the places and experience the culture even though they are not able to be there. Sometimes the photographs are side pictures to support the text and other times the pictures are the background and the text is overlaid upon it. The text of each two-page spread has a larger font that will not overwhelm young readers. Specific words are bolded in the text and in the back of the book there is a glossary with definitions for those specific words. This book is great for parents or teachers who want to encourage international development, as well as being able to read non-narrative, nonfiction next. Children will enjoy being able to look at one cultural tradition at a time and to pick and choose which one sounds interesting to them without having to read more than they can handle.
