My Ukrainian American Story has received some wonderful reader reviews.
Thank you so much for the wonderful book! Your book captures my youth so well! I too am Ukrainian American and I have a 4 year old daughter I am trying to teach about Ukraine and the Ukrainian language. Your book is perfect for this.
I am so happy to have this book in my collection! It brought back many wonderful memories of my Baba! I am so thrilled to share this with my daughter and show my family traditions with her, through the beautiful illustrations! You have all the main highlights of my upbringing in this book! I am so proud of my heritage and am so grateful for this book!
Beautifully illustrated book for all ages about a young girl’s life growing up as Ukrainian-American. Ukrainian-American people will love this book as well as anyone of any culture.
Having grown up Ukrainian-American, I am delighted to see my experiences reflected here - Ukrainian Saturday School, St. Nicholas shows, Plast camps, Soyuzivka, Ukrainian church, Ukrainian Christmas Eve and Easter traditions, etc. The book is aimed at young children, but my teenagers are tickled to see this too, since they are growing up as Ukrainian-Americans as well. This is perfect for showing American friends what our experience is like. I think it would be great for International Nights at regular school. Someone marrying into a Ukrainian family might find this instructive as well. The author’s illustrations are adorable too.
This book is great! Growing up as a Ukrainian in America, you’re not from Ukraine but at the same time you grow up as a Ukrainian and this book is finally the perfect example of what it is to live in the hybrid gray area that is Ukrainian-American.
