In this post, we will see the book The Cedar Chest by Rina Zelyonaya and Sergei Ivanov.

About the book

“The Cedar Chest” might seem like a strange title at first, but we’ll tell you why we chose it.

There are many fairy tales in which elves, witches, giants or princesses had their treasures locked up in a chest. Besides, in olden times every family had a chest of some kind in which their most precious possessions were kept. There might be an old snuff box, a Turkish shawl, an antique silver necklace, and many other fine and useful things in a family’s cedar chest.

If you look hard, you’ll find many useful things in this little book, too, things that will come in handy in life.

Most important, though, is that you understand that we live among people. All people are the same in that no one wants to he hurt, and that a smile will always bring you a smile in return.

So let’s think about each other.

The book was translated from Russian by Galina Glagoleva and illustrated by Viktor Chizhikov. The book was published in 1983 by Malysh Publishers.
