Translated by Alan Leslie Cockerill. Vasily Sukhomlinsky's My Heart I Give to Children is an educational classic that has sold millions of copies in 30 languages. It describes Sukhomlinsky's ground-breaking work with thirty-one students in rural Ukraine, during an experimental preschool year and the subsequent four years of their primary schooling. Sukhomlinsky wrote over thirty books, all based on his personal experience as a teacher and school principal at Pavlysh Secondary School in rural Ukraine during the 1950s and 1960s. His school became famous in educational circles and hosted thousands of visitors who came from the length and breadth of the Soviet Union and beyond. About the Author: Vasily Sukhomlinsky (whose name has also been transliterated as Vasillii Sukhomlinskii and Vasyl Sukhomlynsky) was the most influential Soviet educator of the 1950s and 1960s. He lived from 1918 to 1979, and wrote over 30 books and over 500 articles, many of which have been translated into multiple languages, and sold millions of copies. Sukhomlinsky tried to redirect the course of Soviet education towards a greater concern for the needs of individual students. He was influenced by earlier educators such as Leo Tolstoy and Janusz Korczak. Sukhomlinsky's works continue to enjoy popularity in his homeland (Ukraine) and in Russia, where many of his works were first published. His writings are also immensely popular in China, where he is one of the most influential foreign educators. Alan Cockerill (1952-) is a school teacher and researcher, with a background in Russian language studies. His book about Sukhomlinsky, based on a doctoral study, is the most authoritative account of Sukhomlinsky's work written in English.
