PreK Bits - "R" is for Russian stories

Ms. Rachel brought Russian stories to Storytime this week.
“Naughty Rozalina” is an oral tradition story told with nesting matryoshka dolls.
Ms Sara played guitar and sang “May There Always Be Sunshine”. She even sang the first verse in Russian language!!
The song can be found on the CD GLOBALullabies and the CD SONGS Of Our WORLD.
The TURNIP: An Old Russian Folktale is a classic tale with Dedoushka, Babushka, Mashenka and the animals all pulling together.
Pierr Morgan's version is a favorite of mine for the illustrations and the simple telling.
Unfortunately it can no longer be replaced so we keep the last copy for story programs.
Fortunately there are more versions to borrow in this list.

For more favorite Russian folklore try the following titles:
BABUSHKA’S MOTHER GOOSE … nursery rhymes with Russian themes
AT The WISH Of The FISH … be careful what you wish for …
LUBA And The WREN … a version of the fisherman story illustrated and told by x|l&sort=oldest|Patrica Polacco
GRANDMA CHICKENLEGS ... a traditonal Baba Yaga story.
The LITTLE SNOWGIRL … Pavel makes a snowgirl for his wife.
The LITTLEST MATRYOSHKA … teamwork saves the day.
MAY THERE ALWAYS SUNSHINE ... a poetically perfect song to grow with.
