Based on a Children's Book by Vladimir Mayakovsky
Thank you for something so delightful and an appropriate reminder for these times.
This reminded me of the book "All I Really Need To Know Is What I Learned in Kindergarten" by Robert Fulghum which was published in 1989.
Most of us still apparently remember what we learned in kindergarten but unfortunately, our "leaders" apparently have not.
I loved this Celia. And Jenny Wade wrote a book translating his poetry! What a discovery. The video is just so hilarious and delightful. Excellent!
Mayakovsky! Delightful. I have a special place in my heart for Russian literature and language. I love its blocky shapes and sounds, no fiddling around with articles, just get to the point, which in a good way seems to mirror so many of the people, I discovered when there.
“A brave boy is good, in life it’ll come in handy.”
God bless you Celia. You brightened my day. Please consider yourself hugged.
Just had a thought. Please pass that hug along. We all need to be receiving and giving many more hugs as we all make our way thru the dystopian nightmare we find ourselves in.
And that goes for my fellow Substack family as well. Please receive and pass that hug along.
Oh if only it was that easy. But actually it is just that easy. But dont listen to me as I failed my task as a father figure. I was gone far too long on multiple deployments at the critical development stages.
Don't just sit there ... Consume!
Hi Celia, delightful! I grew up in western Ukraine and we spoke russian at home, so I was raised on
Maykovskys stories. I know your dad spoke Russian, do you? thanks very much. David
It's a lovely concept, delightful drawings and animation. I loved how it started with: "This is good for that..." and "That is good for this..." – giving the fundamental message that negative and positive exist only in context.
In the scenes where he gets into the 'bad boy' – 'good boy' narrative, it becomes a different story.
Very cute and fun to watch. We need more books like this.
Swooning on Russian Cartoons….
Celia I love you!!! So happy you’re in Spain 😜😊❤️
So glad I grew up in America. Give me Captain Kangaroo or
a Little Golden Book any day..
