LAO PROVERBS COLORING BOOK: a book that needs a sponsor.

LAO PROVERBS COLORING BOOK
Children can enjoy coloring pictures while learning about Lao customs in this cleverly illustrated book of proverbs. People from other cultures will recognize many truths about human behavior and morality in these traditional observations.
Lao language. Sponsorship: US $1500

THE NOSE BOOK
Big noses and small noses, cat noses and mouse noses, and runny noses, too. Several of our young staff, who grew up without ever seeing a fun book, used techniques such as rhyme, repetition, and humor, so that a new generation of Lao children will enjoy reading as they grow up.
Lao language. Sponsorship: US $1900

LEARN TO COUNT WITH GIKONG
One buffalo. Two fish. Three houses. Four boats. Five dragonflies. Inspired by the work of the popular Japanese artist Mitsumasa Anno, Gikong has drawn ten scenes of a growing Lao village, each representing a different number.
Lao language. Sponsorship: US $2100

FUN WITH FRUIT
We are lucky to have a great variety of flavorful, inexpensive, and healthy fruit here in Laos. Sone's lively rhymes combine with the playful pictures of two young artists to introduce Lao children to some new fruits, as well as celebrating some familiar favorites.
Lao language. Sponsorship: US $1750

HEIDI
Some stories travel well. Heidi, the tale of an orphan girl who goes to live with her grandfather in the Swiss Alps, is immensely popular in Japan, and we expect it to be enjoyed in our own mountain-filled, landlocked country.
Lao language. Sponsorship: US $2400

BLACK BEAUTY
The classic story from 150 years ago is told from a horse's perspective. The author hoped to encourage kinder treatment of animals and succeeded in doing so with a good story, rather than by preaching.
Lao language. Sponsorship: US $1800

OUR BODIES ARE CHANGING
As they enter puberty, young Laotians have the same questions as those in other countries, but with far less accurate information. This book addresses all aspects of puberty, including physical changes, menstruation, sexually-transmitted diseases, and an overview of the reproductive system.
