I See the Sun in Nepal is a simple, yet accurate reflection of village life in Nepal as seen through a child's eyes. The book tells the story of one child's day from dawn until night. Waking, eating, doing chores, going to school, playing with friends, all occur within the context of time of day, and the movement of the earth. The ordinary activities of life to which we all relate are described in simple prose and vivid collages of drawings, photographs of Nepal, and brightly colored paper. Children will be able to recognize the similarities as well as the differences between their own daily life and that of children living in Nepal. Written in English and devanagari script, which is the Nepali translation of the English, this book also introduces young children to the concept that not everyone uses our alphabet. The author, Dedie King, was a Peace Corps volunteer in Nepal and taught school in Kathmandu and Bandipur. Includes glossary and country overview. For ages 5 and up. I See the Sun in Nepal is the second book in the I See the Sun series.
