Pequena biografia
Mirra Ginsburg was a Jewish Russian-American translator of Russian literature, a collector of folk tales and a children's writer. Born in Bobruisk (then part of the Russian Empire, now part of modern-day Belarus) in 1909, she moved with her family to Latvia, then to Canada, before they settled in the United States. Although she won praise for her translations of adult literature, including the Master and Margarita (1967) by Mikhail Bulgakov and We (1972) by Yevgeny Ivanovich Zamyatin, she is perhaps most celebrated for her contributions to children's literature. She collected and translated a vast array of folktales from the Russian tradition, as well as Siberian and Central Asian traditions. Ginsburg died in 2000.

This book is about a chick and a duckling. The chick follows the duckling along on all of his adventures, but finally realizes that they are different and that it's okay to do different activities.

I recommend this book to the primary classrooms. It is a fun, simple, bright, and has words throughout the book to help explain what they are doing. This book is encouraging to kids to try new things, but realize not everything is made for everyone! People will thrive in different activities!
