Borya and the Burps: An Eastern European Adoption Story

Illustrated by: Dawn W. Majewski
Age Level: 3-6

Borya and six babies live in an orphanage. The Mamachkas take good care of them: they feed the babies, they change their diapers, and they sing to them at night. Borya likes this. Then one day, two people come to the orphanage to see Borya. They don't talk like the Mamachkas; he doesn't understand them. Then they take him away. What are these places? Who are these people? Where is he going? This adoption story captures a toddler's view of being adopted. (The Reading Tub)
