This year the Foundation has created 3 new book sets: Russian folk tales for the kids aged 3-5, Scandinavian folk tales for the kids of 6-8. The educational set “Merry count” with “reading pen” for the kids aged 5-8.
The new sets like the other products of the Foundation are created with the use of special polygraphic techniques that simplify tactile perception of the drawn images: hot stamping, varnishing, flocking, cutting and tactile details as well as moving pop ups.
Reading pen is a smart and fun assistant to make acquaintance with the book. It will teach to count from one to ten and tell many interesting things about the circus.
The sound tracking in the book should also be noted. There are many well-known music and songs of Soviet and Russian composers as well as jazz that was specially composed by Vladimir Agofonnikov, the well-known music maker.
