Book, Music & Video Library Project

A Narrow Perspective on the World

Consider that these children live in one room for 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year.
They have no exposure to the real world and very few toys to play with.

"The cloth books were my children's and I sent them
because I could not get out of my head that they had
no books to look at."

Jeanne, an adoptive mom.

Here Is How You Can Help!

Cloth Books
Buy or make cloth books.
These books are great for the little ones
as they can be washed if needed.
Board Books
Buy Russian* board books
or collect and send English board books.
Buy Russian* videos
or collect and send English videos
(the Antoshka and Roschitsa Orphanages
have a TV and VCR).

* We have secured substantially discounted prices
for buying Russian books and videos online.
