Every year on April 2, on the anniversary of the great Danish storyteller Hans Christian Andersen, the world celebrates the International Children's Book Day. Representative office of Rossotrudnichestvo in the UK hosted a presentation of a fun story in verse and a book of lullabies in celebration of the Children's Book Day.

An exceptionally funny story in verse from Natalia Shchukina about the adventures of a very hungry spider “The Yellow Checker Spider” was written by the author under the influence of memories from reading the works of Korney Chukovsky as a child.

The author acquainted the young readers and their parents with a kind and fun story that enables parents of bilingual children to practice the language and enjoy the humor and funny pictures.

An exhibition of illustrations for the book drawn by artist Olga Baby took place in the framework of the presentation.

The book of lullabies by Elizaveta Khaustova "Sing to me softly, Mom" includes songs for both children and adults. The author believes that lullabies can be regarded as the first purposeful act of educational and developmental influence on the child, which begins long before it is included in the active cognitive activity.
