After crafts, how about a few songs?

Music Activities for retarded children
a handbook for teachers and parents
Ginglend
1965

Another ALB spy sent this lovely book to us.  Think of it as a companion title to the crafts book!  Thankfully, it has been weeded from the collection.  Last time I checked WorldCat, this book was in university collections and a few large public libraries, which is probably appropriate for this title.  I also must confess it took me quite a while to realize that is some kind of bird on the cover.

Break out the borscht!

What to do when the Russians come
A survivor’s guide
Conquest
1985

Completing our trifecta of red scare material,  here is a great book describing how you too can survive the occupation of the Soviets.  This particular book needs to be in an archive since it really does capture the hysteria of the cold war.  (Did you notice one of the author’s name?)  I wonder if these guys thought about a second edition after 1989?

More fun with communists!

How the communists use religion
Bundy
1966

Okay comrades, this is yet another gem plucked from a small public library.  This poor book had definitely seen better days.  The cover was damaged and the book had a serious “odor”.  Contents not withstanding, I think we can do better in both preservation efforts and in providing current information.  In my cursory examination of this title, this book  suggests that the Soviets had a great deal of control or influence on the Church.  Anyone know the background of this title?
