“Easy Books” is a series of books for children who are beginning to read in Russian and are proficient in a second language. The design of the series takes into account the age-related perception of younger children, closely resonates with the storylines that are appealing to children, evokes strong positive emotions, and fosters the child’s motivation.

You only need to know 25 letters to read this book. In the fourth book, we learn to read combinations with the letter Е. For children who are learning to read in both English and Russian simultaneously, this can be quite challenging. The letter ‘е’ is used in both English and Russian languages. Teach your child to read words with the letter Е in Russian, and they will read accurately and confidently.

This book uses 25 letters of the Russian alphabet, allowing the child to start reading long before they’ve learned all 33 letters. Developing reading skills right away with several familiar letters makes it easier for children to differentiate between the Cyrillic and Latin alphabets, avoiding confusion between letters. By reading “Easy Books,” your child will not only reinforce reading skills but also learn to derive pleasure from interacting with books.

Read with your child! Read and discuss! Read and imagine!
