Books that make literacy fun!
Do you remember the excitement of rushing home to read a book that you hoped would never end?
We're Big Brother Mouse, a Lao-based, Lao-owned project. Since 2006, we've been publishing "books that make literacy fun!"
Until now, few books were published in the Lao Language. Many people in Lao villages never saw a book. Big Brother Mouse is already changing that, but we still have far to go.
Big Brother Mouse is based in Luang Prabang, Laos; we also have a shop in Vientiane. Please come visit if you're in Laos. If you're not, you can learn more from this website, and we hope you'll want to help children have the joy of owning their very first book.
Every child reading, every day: We "make literacy fun" by holding book parties in rural Lao villages. Then we leave enough books in every classroom for a sustained silent reading program. Every day, children spend time reading. They never had an opportunity for that before.
The Story of Big Brother Mouse offers a lively introduction to what we do. We invite you to download this PDF and share with friends: The Story of Big Brother Mouse. Also available in German and Japanese editions; other languages are in preparation.
