Because children love to learn, sing and play, they will be delighted to spend time in Alphabet Village where letters grow on trees and the river flows of alphabet soup.

Led by Boomchyk Borovyk, our lovable purple host, they meet Natalka, who is eager to learn the Ukrainian alphabet, Yurko, who wants to capture the colorful village on canvas and Maksym, who dreams of being a soccer star. Pani Vera, their creative teacher, finds many ways to help them learn.

Milya, a lovely English-speaking puppet, pops in throughout the video to provide encouragement and explanations of the on-screen activities. This video teaches a variety of Ukrainian words and instills pride for one's Ukrainian heritage. Closed captioning is available in English so parents and friends who do not speak Ukrainian can follow along and learn as well.
