I found a book online that would be an excellent teaching resource for Anastasija. One of the things we will be doing each day is teaching her English. This will be very helpful for whether she becomes part of an American family, or even if she stays in her own country. The book I found has 750 words that are translated in Russian and English, so we can teach her.
I have had many people ask what they can do or buy for Anastasija and this would be an excellent purchase. You can find it here: http://www.languagelizard.com/ The name of the book is My Talking Dictionary. It comes with a book and cd rom.
Other books that would be fun for her to read while she is here are Anne of Green Gables, Pollyanna, or Because of Winn Dixie written in Russian. You can find them here: http://www.adoptedfromrussia.com/
We will be purchasing a book with Russian phrases that will help us with daily routine...and will teach us how to say, "Goodnight, I love you." Very important!!!
If anyone wants to purchase any of these books please leave a comment, so others know what books she will be receiving and she won't receive duplicates. Thank you!!!
