The Little Book
Mykola Matwijchuik, translated by Magda Stroinska & Volodymyr Shyba, illustrated by O. Kurelac
Publisher proceeds from the book go to humanitarian aid for the Ukrainian people through The Canada Ukraine Foundation.
The Little Book was originally published in 1932 and made a vital contribution to the curriculum for Canadian-Ukrainian children in prairie schools. Besides containing alphabet letters and gorgeous illustrations, the book features charming parables and poems to help children from kindergarten to grade 9 to understand the Ukrainian language and culture.
This special 2022 edition, reprinted to celebrate the Ukrainian diaspora, with proceeds to the Canada Ukraine Foundation, features an English translation of these lovely rhymes and verses. (From UpRoute)
