Some day a creative publisher is going to make a lot of money on a reprint of this unique little book. At its heart is a running anthology of various "mistakes" that Chukhovsky - one of, if not the greatest Russian children's writer - has heard kids say over the years. These are funny, fascinating, sad, absurd. C lines them up and then annotates them with a very pragmatic and sympathetic view of how children develop and use language. One of those books you find yourself constantly wanting to ...more

Вообще-то, я уже читал эту книгу. Точно могу вспомнить два раза - первый, когда мы только-только смогли приобрести по подписке (помнит ли ещё кто-то, что это такое?) двухтомник Чуковского, мне на тот момент было лет десять и из мыслей, которые доносит Корней Иванович в этом (по сути) сборнике статей, я понял, дай бог, половину. Второй раз - студентом педагогической специальности, параллельно с Макаренко, Монтессори и другими мэтрами педагогической мысли начала XX века. Это было, несомненно, ...more

from the pen of a pioneering child linguist, the foremost translator who ever lived, and a man who never failed to criticize the Russian education system - and was never imprisoned! Anyone who is a champion of empowering the child will love this. Try to find the later edition, I think it's from 1968, as it has extra material. Anyone who writes songs or poetry for children could benefit from his baker's dozen rules for writing childrens' poetry in the appendix. Why is this book so short, when the ...more

Интересно перекликается с Происхождение языка: факты, исследования, гипотезы в той части, где Чуковский рассказывает о становлении речи у детей (а это где-то две трети книги).

Really awesome, though I wasn't able to read all of it. Still, considering how dated it is, I think it's still very relevant and worth a read. Great insight into why nonsense and creativity are important for children.

Korney Ivanovich Chukovsky (Russian: Корне́й Ива́нович Чуко́вский) was one of the most popular children's poets in the Russian language. His catchy rhythms, inventive rhymes and absurd characters have invited comparisons with the American children's author Dr. Seuss.
