I See the Sun in Burma (Myanmar)

$ 12.95
I See the Sun in Myanmar (Burma) 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 ofmetta, 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. 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.
