The lessons can be used at different grade levels and adapted to fit various classroom needs. The book is divided into three sections. Section 1 introduces "Global Perspectives and Cross-Cultural Awareness." Section 2, "Russian Studies," includes: (1) "An Introduction to Russian Geography and History"; (2) "Children's Lifestyles"; (3) "Russian Language for Everyone"; and (4) "Russian Literature, Folktales and Customs." Section 3, "Russian Arts, Crafts, Music and Dance," offers: (1) "Introduction to Russian Folk Art"; and (2) "Russian Folk Dance." A 149-item bibliography concludes the volume.
