Hello Friends!

I wrote this story for reading two years ago, but didn’t publish it because it seemed to me not perfect enough, and I wanted to make new better illustrations, and maybe to edit it better. And after all these doubts I just forgot about it.

So good that now I have a chance to finish it! In this difficult for Ukraine time I realized that we should not postpone things for later, we need to live every day for 100%. That is why I finished the book using everything that I have with me. I found almost all illustrations except for the last three pictures, that were on paper at home, so I have finished the book without them. But as for me it still looks not bad.

Especially because I am not an illustrator at all, so those pictures are not really so important. The most important is the text because I wrote it, especially for the Russian language learners, who want to practice Russian Verbs of Motion. And this is already my professional sphere. I hope that reading the Story will not only give you some positive emotions but also will help you to deal with the verbs of motion, which can be tricky sometimes.

Have a good reading!
