Modern parents strive to develop their kids literally from the cradle: numerous early development courses, foreign languages, and, of course, creativity — today’s children have to comprehend much more information than their peers in the recent past. And so I want the child to remain a child longer, and his childhood to be the happiest and most memorable! Books from this review are included in the series “Leisure for a Kid” from the ENAS-BOOK publishing house. They help to present important information for the child in a playful way — after all, the main type of cognitive activity for a preschooler is a game. Reading, counting, safety rules, English — while having fun playing, the child will learn important basic knowledge that he will need in the future.
Alexandra Bodrova: ABC in pictures
This alphabet is not simple, but … zoological! Opening it, little readers enter the zoo together with a kindergarten group. And then they remember all the animals they saw there. Each page is another letter of the alphabet and another zoo pet. About each pet, the author of the book, Alexandra Bodrova, came up with a quatrain in which she talks about his habits. The text is accompanied by detailed drawings made in a realistic manner. In the corner of the picture is a large letter with which the name of the animal or bird begins. Also at the end of the book you can find the entire alphabet from A to Z to consolidate the knowledge gained.
Set “Bunny Lessons”
The set includes five books, with the help of which the child will master counting skills, learn the concepts of color and shape, understand how important it is to help each other, learn to speak politely, and get acquainted with natural phenomena. And the little Bunny, who lives in the Strawberry Valley, will help the kids and will gladly keep the kids company in fun lessons. While listening to stories about the adventures of Bunny, the children will perform various tasks, and with the help of their parents, they will make a cute baby book. Bright illustrations, feasible tasks and memorable stories will make learning easy and enjoyable.
Vladimir Stepanov: Let’s count and play
As the title suggests, this book introduces children to numbers and counting skills in a playful way. Funny counting rhymes, poems, digital riddles, tongue twisters will help kids learn to count. And to consolidate knowledge — funny pictures on which you need to find and count the hidden birds, fish and other animals.
Thanks to fun tasks, the child will remember numbers, ordinal counting and ordinal numbers.
Elena Sergienko: Who lives in books?
A fascinating literary quiz for kids, which helps to remember the heroes of their favorite books, guess their names, retell a familiar story. Elena Sergienko wrote a funny poem about each character, and the artist Geta Belogolovskaya depicted them “in all their glory.” Children are waiting for a meeting with the Snow Queen, with a miniature Thumbelina, with Aladdin and his magic lamp, with Emelya and a talking pike and many, many others. In addition to literary riddles, the book contains developmental tasks for preschoolers: this is the search for lost objects, and “sending” letters to recipients, etc. The book helps to popularize reading among children. And by performing fun tasks, the child develops thinking, speech, memory and imagination.
Ears on top. Getting to know the safety rules in the city
The kid gets to the city for the first time and is filled with vivid impressions. But the city can be not only attractive and kind, but also dangerous, and our task is to prepare the child for those difficult situations that he may encounter during a walk.
The book was created in collaboration with the search and rescue team “Lisa Alert”. What to do if a child is lost? What knowledge should he have to prevent this from happening? What to do if you see a lost child on the street? The answers to these and other questions, as well as important practical advice from the instructor “Liza Alert” you will find on the pages of the book, which is equally useful for both children and parents.
And Alexandra Bodrova came up with a story in verse about mom, dad and children, with whom readers will repeat (or maybe learn!) Safety rules on a city walk.
First steps in learning English
Elena Sergienko: How do you say “sausages” in English?
Elena Sergienko: How do you say “taffy” in English?
Elena Sergienko: I want to travel, and I’m learning English!
Books by Elena Sergienko will give the kids the first idea about the English language. These are not complicated manuals for learning a foreign language, but simple and funny books that help expand your active vocabulary. The author uses her own many years of experience working with preschoolers: she includes English words and expressions in poems in Russian for better memorization by children of both the words themselves and their translation. For each English expression, two transcriptions are given — classical (written using international characters) and practical (written using Russian letters, as is customary in phrasebooks).
Cheerful poems by Elena Sergienko are easy to remember, they are understandable and accessible to kids, which means that learning will not be a tedious task, but a fun adventure.
