Spinning tops and tossing boules
With humorous sketches of both people and cartoon animals, and short descriptions, this coloring book introduces Lao children to 31 sports and games, some traditional, some newer.
Village children spin handmade tops, as they've done for centures. A young woman tries the much newer sport of pole vaulting. Birds play boules, introduced by the French. And snails are the unlikely choice to learn the high jump.
