Learning about Russia is a topic near and dear to my families heart. My husband is a Russian American and we believe strongly in raising globally aware children who are knowledgeable about the world. There are many ideas about how to start introducing different places and cultures to your children. I tend to start with what I know, then branch out to the cultures and heritages of our family, friends, classmates, and neighbors.
