When Daddy Was a Little Boy - revisited

It was with much bombast here that I intended to transribe my PDF copy of When Daddy Was A Little Boy.

Sadly, a combination of too many things to do in terms of both work and pleasure meant that such mundane activities kept getting relegated to the back of the queue.

So, here's the next best thing: my copy of the PDF. Read it and enjoy, as I know you will. (Well, really this would be the best thing, and the transcript would be the next best thing, since the actual book has really nice illustrations and looks brilliantly quaint.)

Note that I do not own the copyright to this work of brilliance - anyone who does can let me know, and I will take down the link.

Wow! Thank you so much for this, this was one of my favourite books as a kid, and I've always hoped to find a preloved copy in a discount bin somewhere, but no luck yet.

Thank you for sharing this book . My mother used to buy these soviet books at book fairs in Bangalore. Brings back so many childhood memories. Do you have a book called "Happy Days" by L Voronkova. I have been looking or it for years now.
