Are you looking for Ukrainian texts for reading? You have found them!

Let me present you Ukrainian Readers for Intermediate level (B1):

Непосида Йде Шукати Матусю (Fidget goes to look for his mom)

This is a story for reading with verbs of motion. This grammar topic is always challenging, and it is very useful to practice these verbs in context. The fairytale tells about a little squirrel Непосида (Fidget), whose mom Ласунка (Sweet Teeth) was stolen from the forest by a cruel hunter. So Непосида is going to do anything to save her. On his way he moves a lot, that is when we can observe these tricky verbs of motion with and without prefixes in context.

The ebook is accompanied by Audiobook (recorded by a professional voice actress), has the author's illustrations (don't judge me harshly, I am not an artist), vocabulary lists, tasks after each chapter, and keys to them.
