Kornei Chukovsky was an extraordinary figure: a critic and memoirist of. .illustrated, revised.

Especially fine were his translations from English, including renderings of Walt Whitman, Mark Twain, and G. K. Chesterton. From Two to Five, first published in 1928 and reissued many times, presents witty, thoughtful observations of children's psychology and verbal creativity, and has been frequently used by linguists.

In 1901 Chukovsky started writing articles for the Odesskiye Novosti newspaper. Two years later he was sent to London as the paper’s correspondent. By the writer’s own admission, he was a bad journalist: Instead of attending parliamentary sittings, he would spend whole days in the Reading Room of the British Museum, devouring the classics of English literature. He described his observations of their verbal creativity in the book From Two To Five, which Japanese teachers, for instance, regard as one of the best studies of child psychology. Targeted by the state. Unfortunately for Chukovsky, even children’s stories came under scrutiny by the Soviet authorities.

Discusses the language of preschool children, and how it is enriched by poetry and fantasy
Although I found myself agreeing with most of what Chukovsky said in this book, I nevertheless can only mildly recommend it. Early childhood educators are likely going to find this an interesting read, but are probably going to have a hard time applying it towards anything practical.

For the most part, this book is just one man's opinion about various issues of child development. He puts a lot of focus on language development, and I think his views on the importance of silly word play are quite laudable. He is admirable in the way he advocates for preserving the nonsensical imaginative world of the 2-5 year old child. I am sure that the man would be absolutely horrified by the trend of cramming information into children's heads with flashcards and Kumon centers.

He had a particularly interesting passage about the ways that children apply their own logic in order to explain things such as death and childbirth. His point is to explain why it is often futile to try and cram complicated facts into a child's mind.

However, there are plenty of things in the book that are not as compelling. His discussion of the importance of poetry comes across as rather self-serving, considering that he is a poet himself. He has some opinions about the importance of correcting children's language mistakes that I believe are somewhat dated. Discussions of specific nuances of the Russian language were interesting, but frustratingly inapplicable to understanding English speaking children.

There are a fair number of examples of things children have said to him over the years, but not as much as I expected, and many of these examples are from children with very advanced language capabilities -- kids who are very likely gifted. While such examples are fun to read, they do not provide very much applicability when it comes to understanding the language of a "normally" developing child.

When it came out, I am sure this book was a revelation to many in the field of child development. In the today's world, however, developmental psychology is such a robust evidence based science that this opinionated ramble is unfortunately just not useful or convincing enough for me to strongly recommend it.
This is a great little book on language development in young children. The book arrived promptly and in good condition.
Must read for educators
I wish a new edition of this book would become available. Chukovsky has written an insightful, delightful book about children's capacity to use language and narration to craft meaning.
He transmits wonderful example's of the child's growing reasoning skills and never belittles the young learners. This book is academic and pleasure reading, quite a claim, I know, but accurate.
I think that anyone who writes children's poems or stories would take particular delight in reading this. He outlines 13 guidelines in writing for children that should save one from miscues and failures and speak straight to the hearts and minds of the child.
It is a little dated, mainly because Chukovsky wrote in 1960 in the midst of a Soviet regime. Yet, the truth and the passion still emerge. The respect that he has for children's capacity to learn should be the role model for each of us.
I sincerely recommend this book to you.
