How quickly time flies! It seemed that only yesterday we celebrated the Day of Knowledge and sent first graders with large bouquets to their first lesson. And now - already the autumn holidays. We know that not everyone misses school days at this time, someone may not want to return to their desk. Especially for such young fidgets, we have prepared a selection of books that will show school everyday life in an interesting and even sometimes exciting way. And those who ask the question: “Why should I go to school?” - will help to find the answer on their pages.
Victor Golyavkin. "Carousel in the head"
Chekhov certainly said: "Brevity is the sister of talent." Viktor Golyavkin's stories are short, often just a few sentences, sketches about the life of schoolchildren. But what a liveliness they have! Golyavkin is a classic of Soviet school prose, but his works will be understandable and, no doubt, interesting to the modern reader. Benevolent humor, the ability to notice the most subtle details and present them in an unobtrusive form make Golyavkin's prose especially valuable. It seems as if these stories were written by your brilliant deskmate. The book is wonderfully complemented by modern color illustrations by Viktor Mineev, which take us back to the school years of Golyavkin's contemporaries.
Daria Wardenburg. "Tanya, Otter and Company"
When you are six years old, the world is filled with simple magic. So for the inquisitive girl Tanya, the summer before the first class turned out to be special. Talking Otter and also the best swimming teacher, Wild Cat as the best hat in cold weather, Gourmet hedgehog and pasta in the forest, the secret operation "Save the Owl" and a letter of instruction from Santa Claus. New friends and amazing adventures do not let Tanya get bored even for a minute and help to easily accept important events in her life - the birth of her younger brother and the first day at school.
Yuri Sotnik. "How I was independent"
Do you remember the first time you were alone at home? Surely you felt terribly grown up and independent. And years later, already raising our children, we often anxiously think about how to leave them alone. The stories of Yuri Sotnik, which have become classics and do not lose their relevance today, will be a reassurance for parents and a parting word for children in a hurry to "adult" life. The adventures of the boy Leshka and his friends will make the whole family laugh cheerfully, although the heroes themselves are often not laughing. Modern bright illustrations by Alexander Kukushkin make these stories even more interesting.
100 poems about school
School years inspired many poets to create vivid poems. Poets look at the world with children's eyes, describe the school time sometimes touchingly, and sometimes fervently. These poems will be pleasant to read to preschoolers, schoolchildren and parents. In the collection "100 Poems about School" there was a place for both the classical works of Barto, Pivovarova, Zakhoder, and for the poems of modern children's poets: Yulia Simbirskaya, Stanislav Vostokov, Oleg Bundur and many others. And there is also a whole cycle of Maria Bershadskaya "The sea, which is not on the map."
