Aidar Koldashev is a boy from the village of Sebilyakovo in the Tarsky District, Omsk Region. I call him “hedgehog in the fog,” just like the children’s animated film about a hedgehog who explores the world.
Aidar liveson the right bank of the Irtysh River, and the school is on the left bank, in the village of Butakovo. To get there, Aidar first takes a boat across the river, to the village Kurmanovo, and then boards a school bus.
Every morning, Aidar makes new discoveries on the way to school.
Aidar meets new people on the way. His world is full of colors and emotions.
Aidar likes watching animals that help people live and survive.
Among his animal friends are goats, horses and cows.
Aidar is a fifth-grader now.
He plans to become a welder, like his uncle.
In the meantime, the boy watches everyday life which is not as boring as it seems.
Every new day gives him small pleasures and new impressions.
The surrounding world is open and wonderful; we should not stop being amazed by its divine harmony and beauty.
Adults should also feel like hedgehogs in the fog from time to time.

Aidar Kolashev lives in the village of Sebilyakovo, Tarsky District, Omsk Region. Every morning he goes to school making discoveries and meeting new people on the way.
