Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Meredith Kiger
This introduction to Russia uses color names to focus on various aspects of the land and its culture. Beginning with the brown bear, large color photographs are used to describe its people, city life, native animals and everyday living not only focusing on a color but providing interesting facts in each written description. Additional facts such as the capital, its population, its official language, a map, the flag, an example of its currency, and a few common words and their pronunciations are provided. The Russian Federation is really a collection of eleven countries that originally comprised the U.S.S.R Most of the photos and descriptions in this book depict mainly Russia, although the map included covers all of the eleven countries which are quite varied in their cultures. Additional pronunciations are included in the glossary as well as sources for further study and an index. It is a nice introduction for early readers. Reviewer: Meredith Kiger, Ph.D.
