“Easy Books” by Nina Romanova is a series of books written based on the principle of gradual text complexity. These are tales both simple and humorous, leaving no one, be it adults or children, untouched.

This collection of books is tailored for children embarking on the journey of reading in Russian while proficient in a second language. The presentation of this series takes into account the nuances of younger children’s age-specific perceptions, weaving storylines close to their hearts, evoking robust positive emotions, and nurturing the child’s motivation.

A mere 22 letters are all that’s needed to unlock this book’s contents. Within these pages, you won’t encounter the intricate vowel combinations Я, Ю, Е, Ё, nor will you find the consonants Й, Х, Ц, Ч, Щ; there’s no room for the soft sign or the hard sign.

In the first book, a mere 22 letters of the Russian alphabet take center stage, allowing your child to embark on their reading journey long before discovering all 33 letters. Instilling reading skills upon several acquainted letters from the get-go enables children to differentially grasp the Cyrillic and Latin alphabets with ease and speed, avoiding letter confusion. As your child delves into “Easy Books,” they won’t merely cement their reading skills, but they’ll also learn to take pleasure in engaging with the world of books.

This narrative is spun exclusively from the most fundamental of words.

Read with your child! Read and discuss! Read and let your imagination take flight!
