Look What Came From Russia

By Miles Harvey Franklin Watts; $6.95



Buy this book

I take a low-key approach when talking with my daughter, Natalie, about her adoption. That’s why, in our household, books often precipitate conversations. Books about adoption, different types of families, and her birth country, Russia, intermingle with the many others lining Natalie’s shelf, stuffed in the basket at the bottom of the stairs, and piled on the table next to the couch. This non-fiction book about Russia is new to my "that’s the perfect segue…" stockpile.

When Natalie chose to take a matrioshka doll to school on her sharing day, I brought out Miles Harvey’s Look What Came from Russia. "Nesting dolls are another cool kind of Russian art. When you pull one of them apart, a smaller doll is inside." This visually appealing book features food, fashion, music, and more that had its start in Russia. Full-color photos accompany accessible text.

Reviewed by Kay Marner, a mother by birth and adoption. She works at the public library in Ames, Iowa.
