1 September 2016 (09:18)

UrBC, Yekaterinburg, September 1, 2016. Ural Vagon Zavod Corporation’s head plant is going to produce a children’s book called Ural Vagon Zavod’s Legends in celebration of the plant’s 80th anniversary, the company press service reports.

The book will tell its readers about the history of both the plant and the city of Nizhniy Tagil in an interesting and engaging way. The plant’s Executive Director Vladimir Roshchupkin is the project’s author and director.

The stories were written by a children’s book writer Svetlana Lavrova, a Kniguru Prize winner and Alelita 13 laureate. She was among the Book of The Year Contest winners in 2014.

‘The narrative relies on the chronological principle. The book starts from the story of how Nizhniy Tagil was originally founded and takes the reader through the city’s history as the home of craftsmen and great Russian inventors. The plant’s history starts from the day the first stone was laid in its foundation. Children can read about the plant builders’ work days and about the women’s and children’s employment at the plant during the war. There is also a story on a special assembly line meant for making railcars and another one on the link there is between the plant and space exploration. There are some stories dedicated to tanks, of course,’ the press service says.
