What would you call (in a single word) a child that asks a lot of questions, leading you to admire that fact?
(In Russian, for example, there is such a word. Is there in English?)

The adjective 'inquisitive' may be what you're looking for. It is defined: 'having or showing an interest in learning things', a synonym being 'curious'. As a person who shows an interest in learning, questions (which admire people like you) are likely to be second nature to them.
It also means 'unduly curious about the affairs of others; prying' (May be seen as a negative).
From the above, you could call the child 'inquisitive', or 'posiquisitive' to make it, the noun, aptly positive.
