“The tale is unfolded with such mastery, humor, and emotional force that we are entirely within its power.” —The New York Times Book Review
Jonathan Toomey is the best woodcarver in the valley, but he is always alone and never smiles. No one knows about the mementos of his lost wife and child that he keeps in an unopened drawer. But one early winter’s day, a widow and her young son approach him with a gentle request that leads to a joyful miracle. The moving, lyrical tale, gloriously illustrated by P.J. Lynch, has been widely hailed as a true Christmas classic. This beautiful anniversary edition includes a new note from the author and an audio narration by James Earl Jones available as a complimentary download.
The book is an excellent way to read Paragraph by Paragraph Translation along your kids.
Your little one can follow along as each individual English paragraph is paired with the corresponding Russian paragraph.
The paragraphs are not long, so there is no need to do a lot of back and forth to see the Russian translation and the English text.
The text is relatively simple vocabulary and grammar wise, but not very simple at all, so for beginners this should be a great challenge.
The tale was first published in 1845, and centers on the struggle between good and evil as experienced by a little boy and girl, Kai and Gerda.

An intimate, moving portrait of Abraham Lincoln as rarely seen—through the eyes of his children—and captured in exquisite illustrations.
Historians claim him as one of America’s most revered presidents. But to his rambunctious sons, Abraham Lincoln was above all a playful and loving father. Here is Lincoln as seen by two of his boys: Willie, thrilled to be on his first train trip when Lincoln was deciding to run for president; Willie and Tad barging into Cabinet meetings to lift Lincoln’s spirits in the early days of the Civil War, Tad accompanying him to Richmond just after the South’s defeat. With the war raging and the Union under siege, we see history unfolding through Willie’s eyes and then through Tad’s -- and we see Lincoln rising above his own inborn sadness and personal tragedy through his devotion to his sons. With evocative and engaging illustrations by P.J. Lynch, Rosemary Wells offers a carefully researched biography that gives us a Lincoln not frozen in time but accessible and utterly real.
Back matter includes an author’s note.
