It is a great teaching tool for students big and small.

CAMILLUS, N.Y. (PRWEB) August 14, 2014

Ruzanna Topchyan has spent many of her days in a classroom. As the only child of a teacher, she would often visit her mother’s school and explore the library while waiting for her mother to finish working. Her love of books and of learning was fostered young, but still grows today.

The educator and instructional designer, who speaks English, Armenian and Russian, formerly translated British and American humor for Armenian radio, and eventually began writing her own works. Topchyan’s newest book, “The Little Bear Who Wanted to Play the Cello and Others,” is the author’s first book to be written in English.

Topchyan has a passion not only for designing learning environments and conduction research in education, but also for teaching others life’s fundamental lessons. “The Little Bear Who Wanted to Play the Cello and Others” is a series of fables that was designed to get children excited about reading.

The author has used the book in many educational scenarios, including helping adults learn English.

“It is a great teaching tool for students big and small,” Topchyan said. “Parents, teachers and kids alike will be engaged in the stories.”

The author encourages readers to use their imaginations to create their own fables.
