Nina Romanova’s “Easy Books” comprises a series of books that have been created following a principle of gradually increasing text complexity. These are straightforward and humorous tales that engage both adults and children alike.

This book series is designed for children who are taking their first steps in reading in Russian while also being fluent in a second language. The design of the series takes into account the unique perceptions of younger children, with storylines that resonate closely with them, triggering powerful positive emotions and nurturing the child’s motivation.

You only need to know 23 letters to read this book. In the second book, we delve into learning combinations involving the letter Я. These combinations can be more challenging for young ones who are fluent in English. Teaching your child to correctly pronounce syllables consisting of soft consonants and the vowel Я as early as possible will prevent an English accent in their Russian language.

Instilling reading skills right from the start with several learned letters allows children to more easily and swiftly differentiate between the Cyrillic and Latin alphabets, without confusing letters. As your child reads “Easy Books”, they won’t just solidify their reading skills; they’ll also learn to find pleasure in engaging with books.

This story is written from the simplest of words.
Read with your child! Read and discuss! Read and let your imagination roam!

    Мой средний сын учился читать по этой книге. Очень крупный шрифт и нравятся иллюстрации очень. Замечательно, что есть специальные книги для билингвов.
