my white room


i never saw a moor—
i never saw the sea—
yet know i how the heather looks
and what a billow be.

ever since i came to montessori school
when i was eighteen i wanted to make 
my very own cards for children, abc
ones, with animals on them, watercolors.
and few days ago, accidently, the elephant
appeared, easy and light. i put russian letter
but i want to make it with english, too.
one by one, i have eight of them now.
happy to make them, feel closer to 
the world i`m missing these days.

here they are,
baby animals, sleepy animals

  4. beautiful cards you make
    children would be so happy,
    if they could study with them.

    i've never seen such a beautiful tool for school
    (oh, i have many complaint about it for my kids' school)
    it's so important, we need arts in our life.

  9. You should make these into a book Olga, with both English and Russian together, so the children could learn both at once. These are really really lovely.
