The book is very nicely published. Beautiful full-color pictures and loads of words.
The only criticism is the lack of accent marks for the Russian words. This is important enough to keep it from 5 stars. For a student to use this to learn Russian with a reasonable accent is problematic.
The strong point is the word/picture association by themes.
I recommend this book for teachers and students.
The only thing I'm not 100% sure about is the Geography listing on page 124 has an incorrect Russian Translation for South America. They listed it as Þæíàÿ Àôðèêà - South Africa. So I don't know if there are any other small mistakes like this since I haven't gone through the whole thing yet.
Other than that, this is a good choice.
