REVIEWS

What a delightful tale Ms. Bochkov has written for multi-lingual children. This Russian "Gingerbread Man" story appeals not only to young children with its vivid and multi-media illustrations, but also parents and educators, as it is available in four separate languages. The sticker concept is unique - use the same story in one language and the next day reread the same story in a separate language with peel off and on stickers - and has never before been available in such an easy to use format. Parents also have the option of purchasing the same story as a paperback retold with its natural translations.

Having the same story in two different languages can only help students generate complex vocabulary and listening skills necessary when entering the classroom. The English version can be read by one person and the Second Language version can be read by anotheradult who is more comfortable in their home language. The story itself is easy to follow and maintains the natural rhythms uniquein all four languages and provides many opportunities for authentic dialogue with children whether its don't speak with strangers orwhat rhymes with "run". The educational advantages are unique and the storytelling itself is great for a bedtime storycertain to be a family favorite.
