Summaries and Reviews
Amazon.com description: Product Description: In a world where global events dominate the news and our children are exposed to other cultures only superficially, author Dedie King and illustrator Judith Inglese have once again combined their talents to offer a unique perspective for young readers that is simply not available anywhere else. I See the Sun in Myanmar (Burma), one of the award-winning books in the�I See the Sun in . . .series, takes place in a small town on the Irawaddy River in Myanmar, the country formally known as Burma. Lush illustrations and a bilingual story in English and Burmese offer Aye Aye's view of her beautiful country that until recently has been something of a mystery to most of the rest of the world. Aye Aye's father is a fisherman on the river and her mother is a nurse in a nearby hospital. The story also provides an elementary introduction to Buddhist culture and the tradition of�metta, a practice of saying phrases of loving-kindness. The day unfolds with the verses of�metta�that Aye Aye whispers to herself. Her wishes of kindness and compassion to those around her mirror the deep-rooted Buddhist culture present in Myanmar. I See the Sun in Myanmar (Burma)�is a delightful introduction to an ancient Buddhist culture. Heartwarming in its simplicity, said Joseph Goldstein, author and co-founder of Insight Meditation Society.�I See the Sun in Myanmar (Burma)�was first written in English, then translated into Burmese by PawSHtoo B. Jindakajornsri, who works at the Translation Center at the University of Massachusetts. The book is richly illustrated with collages made from original photographs and colorful drawings. It also includes an overview of Myanmar, a glossary of unfamiliar words, and a map that highlights where Myanmar is on the globe.
