  • “Interesting geography. Russia, Europe ".
  • “Interesting geography. Asia, America, Africa ".
  • “Merry geography. Travels, events, unscientific discoveries ”.

Funny poems, riddles, mini-tasks make the learning process a game. Children learn "adult" material faster and easier.

Older children will love the book by M. Ilyin "Memories and Extraordinary Travels of Zakhar Zagadkin."

There was a boy in the world. Every day he came to play in the clearing where the wild apple tree grew. The boy climbed up its trunk, swayed on the branches and ate its fruits. The apple tree gave the boy everything he needed to be happy. But as time went on, the boy grew up, and for happiness he needed much more: money, a house of his own, a strong boat ... And the apple tree gave herself all without a trace, if only the boy would fulfill his dreams and be happy.

This bright parable about true love, which requires nothing in return, was first published in 1964 and has been traveling the world for half a century. The book has long been in the ratings of world bestsellers, translated into more than 30 languages, and its total circulation over the years has exceeded eight million copies.
