I SeeThe Sun In Nepal...Review & Giveaway!

I have a lovely book to tell you about today....I See The Sun In Nepal by Dedie King and Illustrated by Judith Inglese. This book takes you and your child on a journey of day to day life in Nepal. On your journey you will find many things that are different but at the core, life on the other side of the world is not so different when it comes to things like family and friends.

In I See the Sun in Nepal, readers follow a young girl as she spends the day in her village. After waking, she has a breakfast of chiura and tea made by her Ama. Following her chores, she goes to school and has a some time with her friends before going home to do more chores before supper. Then it is time for bed. The text is shown in both English and Nepalese.

I really enjoyed sharing this book with A&W. While they are definitely on the younger side of the recommended age (4-8), I really felt as if they got a better understanding of the larger world from reading I See The Sun In Nepal. The book has certainly sparked some interesting (and important!) conversations. Yes, the girl in the book plays with her friends like you do but her chores include picking oranges with her father and gathering eggs.  My boys are intrigued by the different names for family members used and by the look of the Nepalese language in print.  I enjoyed the glossary at the end of the book as well as some extra information village life in Nepal.

A&W asked me to show them Nepal on the map and this book really got the dialogue flowing about different cultures.  I really liked how the author pointed out both similarities and differences...perfect.  The illustrations were beautifully done as well, with drawings mixed in with photography.  So creative.  I am so excited too that this is part of series which already includes I See The Sun In China.  I See The Sun In Afghanistan is slated for a spring release and I can't wait to read it to A&W.  Let's hear it for teaching our children that, although the details of our lives may vary, deep down we are all the same.  Bravo to the I See The Sun Series!  Pick up your copy today...

How about an African country. I would especially love to see one that is bilingual Englis-Swahili. The country where Swahili is most widely spoken is Tanzania! So that's my vote!
