Although the 21st century is in the courtyard, it seems to me that printed books will be in every home for at least another ten years, especially where there are small children.
The interest in books at my daughter woke up quite late – at 2 years and 2 months. Her first favorite book was a collection of fairy tales, which included: Puss in Boots, Cinderella, Thumbelina, The Little Mermaid and The Ugly Duckling.
Later, at the request of a young lover of princesses, we had the same books, but other publishers with chic illustrations. I was especially impressed by the Little Mermaid with painted oil paintings.
The first poems (unpretentious quatrains of A. Barto do not count) the daughter had works from the books of the series of the publishing house Ranok. Our favorite collections: Mom’s assistant and Secrets of etiquette, each of which includes 4 books.
Remarkable poems that are easily remembered and have a certain educational effect. I especially like books about proper behavior in kindergarten and Neatman about how important it is to brush your teeth and wash your hands. And in general, all the books of the Kharkov publishing house of wounds are distinguished by high-quality illustrations, printing and colorful.
Based on illustrations
Until the batteries are exhausted, the melody from the cartoon Masha and the Bear from the speaker embedded in the book played around the clock. Its only minus is the high cost ($ 200 or 80 UAH). In this series there are educational music books with cartoon characters, but their cost is even higher – under 1100r. (300 UAH.), I am not ready for such sacrifices.
Also at one time (at the age of about 3 years) a large amount of attention was paid to books about Luntik. Now the daughter is looking at the pictures in the Winx Fairy Magazines with interest.
For almost a year we have been learning English again and again from the super-book English for Children. It is quite inexpensive (20 UAH – 80 rubles), but it contains a huge number of illustrations, which are divided by topics and are accompanied by translation and transcription. What I don’t like is that the transcription is in Russian.
We had several books with built-in puzzles, but, alas, they are disposable, because puzzles are not fixed by anything and after the first attempt to assemble them, they fall out, are lost and shuffled.
Stable in hiring rating books and workbooks with logical tasks. At first, we did the tasks selectively, only the easiest ones, but soon we redid everything, now we just paint with nothing to do.
For some reason, most childless friends consider it a matter of honor to give my daughter an ABC book. It seems that there are no other books, and in general, the primer is a reference book for every self-respecting child.
At the age of 2-3 years old, the daughter liked the books Fluffy Alphabet and Culinary Alphabet, but all attempts to show her ABC ended in failure. Maybe she is afraid of a large number of letters put together? 🙂
Of the less beloved, I would like to single out the books of Korney Chukovsky, about Masha-Pull, and also quite useful in the educational process of publishing about safety.
From the recent hobbies of the daughter – a book about the structure of man and insects. True, I had to agree with the child that she did not have capillaries, but only arteries, because she could not accept this stubborn fact.
Read more, enrich the child’s vocabulary with synonyms, expressions and idioms. Hearing several revisions of the same tale, the kid learns to interpret his reasoning differently, using all the richness of the Russian language.
Through reading, creative and logical thinking, memory, fantasy, creativity are developed. The foundation is laid for correct behavior, signs of good and bad manners, search for a way out of non-standard situations.
