  • Ludmilas Way

    A horse named Ludmila learns the value and benefits of sharing in a barn in Russia

    Discover the spirit of generosity in a timeless Russian village. When homeless dog Vladimir is rescued from the cold, he joins a growing community of animal characters who inhabit Ludmila's barn — Ludmila herself, of course, and the three hens, the two cows, the one contrary goose — and we mustn't forget the mylishe, tiny but hungry — and then the swallows! Ludmila knows the best way to maintain harmony in these tight quarters: share and share alike. The ancient town of Suzdal, with its onion shaped domes, belltowers, wooden windmills, and chalk-white monasteries, provides the backdrop for this simple story of generosity. A traditional Russian family, that cares for the animals and grows fruit and vegetables on the small plot of land, echoes — in human terms — the theme of sharing.

    Ludmila s Way will help you:

    • Promote the value and benefits of sharing
    • Demonstrate how one person can bring about group change
    • Introduce the geography and culture of Russia
