A Look At Russia

By Helen Frost Capstone; $5.95



Buy this book

I take a low-key approach when talking with my daughter, Natalie, about her adoption. That’s why, in our household, books often precipitate conversations. Books about adoption, different types of families, and her birth country, Russia, intermingle with the many others lining Natalie’s shelf, stuffed in the basket at the bottom of the stairs, and piled on the table next to the couch. This non-fiction book about Russia is new to my "that’s the perfect segue…" stockpile.

When I gave Natalie A Look at Russia, by Helen Frost, she was excited to find she could read many of the words in this "first-grade book" herself. Color photos support the short, simple text describing the land, animals, and people of Russia. This book is perfect for first- through third-graders, as a read-aloud, or for kids to read independently as skills develop.

Reviewed by Kay Marner, a mother by birth and adoption. She works at the public library in Ames, Iowa.
