Steamboat briefs: Maksimov named Hayden Library Reader of the Week

Maksimov named Hayden Library Reader of the Week

Robert Maksimov has been named as Hayden Library’s seventh Reader of the Week. He has been living in Hayden for three months with his mom Maria, dad Ramon and 1- year-old sister Ariana. The family spends six months out of the year in Moscow, Russia, and six months in the United States.

When 4-year-old Robert is in Russia, he enjoys playing with his friend Richard. Robert enjoys doing gymnastics, soccer and softball and eating four-cheese pizza.

His favorite color is red, his favorite television show is “Peppa Pig” and his favorite Disney character is Batman. Robert likes to help his grandma make pizza, sing children’s songs and loves to travel in his free time.

When he grows up, Robert would like to be a fireman “to help save people from fires.”

When Robert visits the library, he enjoys being read the book “Mango, Abuela and Me” by Meg Medina. Robert will be attending preschool in Russia and likes counting.

The family visited Disney World this spring before coming to Colorado and they are planning to go to Miami and the Dominican Republic. When asked what advice he has for younger children he said, “You should ask questions when reading, so you can learn more.”
