The Crab Flexes its Muscles

I see the bird fixing her nest. I see the rat digging a hole. I see the giraffe giving birth.

Many visitors to Luang Prabang have met Sone, who has greatly improved her computer and English skills while working in our shop, as well as increasing her self-confidence. This very short book is her first, and will also be one of the first that young children are able to read by themselves.
