Free English-Russian Picture Book

Posted on

Today and tomorrow, Kitten in the Storm, my bilingual picture book, will be available for FREE on Kindle, in the English-Russian edition. This is the first volume in a series of children’s picture books which aims to teach vocabulary through a story. For this first volume, I used greetings and introductions.

Kitten in the Storm English-Russian was translated by a good friend of mine, Svetlana Rakova Striguniene. She and I had a lot of fun putting this together. I received good suggestions from her for the English text. As a German and English teacher by education, Svetlana knows a thing or two about languages and literature.

If you know anybody who is trying to learn Russian, please pass this along. This book, of course, can also be used by Russians trying to learn English. Reading is the key to learning and practicing vocabulary in any language.

Thanks for checking Kitten in the Storm English-Russian out!

Izzy Language Series – Bilingual Picture Books

Posted on

Quick, tell me the last five bilingual books you have read to your children… In my experience, I can’t even think of five titles other than the English-Spanish books we used to find in the Cheerios boxes. If you have never heard of Cheerios, it’s a morning cereal in the USA. Sometimes sponsors will pay for these free books to be inserted in cereal boxes, which I think is a smashing idea.

So… I decided to get a bilingual picture book series going myself, in 10 different bilingual editions, with English being the one language that stays. I have lots of international friends all over the world and many with professional translation skills. I am glad to share with you the first volume in the Izzy Language Series – Kitten in the Storm. For now, I have published the English-Romanian edition on Kindle. Very soon, you will see me promote the Russian, German, and Italian versions.

Later on, there will be French, Japanese, Mandarin, and Swedish. Last by not least, Korean and Danish will follow. If I receive a request for another language, I will definitely look into it. Just let me know in a comment below. To be clear, these books will all be bilingual editions.

If you have any Romanian friends, by all means, please spread the word. Kitten in the Storm is a heart-warming story which introduces readers to Izzy, a kitten whose adventures will teach children vocabulary in different languages. Paperback versions will also be available later on this summer.

Should you want a cute kitten story for your children’s bedtime reading tonight, feel free to get this one. You don’t even need to own a Kindle. Amazon.com will let you download a Free Kindle Reading App. You can read the English version and the kids can look at the illustrations. You don’t even have to study Romanian… In less than a minute, you could be reading Kitten in the Storm to your children.

Izzy is the name of our cat and these stories are based on true events. In Kitten in the Storm, I tell the story of how Izzy came to know my husband, Matt, and be his pet. The vocabulary covers introductions and greetings – perfect for a first language lesson – as long as you are not an absolute beginner in either language.
