My First Ukrainian Dictionary
With colorful, eye-catching illustrations to stimulate imagination and curiosity, My First Ukrainian Dictionary is specially designed for children ages 5 to 12. It contains more than 1,000 everyday words (from colors, animals, household items, foods and more)—each illustrated and translated into Ukrainian with accompanying phonetic pronunciation.
The illustrations are arranged alphabetically by English so even young readers can easily search for words, and each one is labeled with clear, bold type.
Recent studies suggest that children should begin learning a foreign language before age 10 for best results. This dictionary is a fun, engaging way for parents or grandparents to introduce Ukrainian to young children. Teachers will also find the dictionary useful for students who are learning Ukrainian or English from Kindergarten and up.
Ukrainian is an East Slavic language spoken by over 40 million people worldwide. It is an official language of Ukraine in Eastern Europe and written with the Ukrainian alphabet using a variation of the Cyrillic script.
