I See the Sun in Myanmar (Burma)

  • “A delightful introduction to an ancient Buddhist culture. Heartwarming in its simplicity.”—Joseph Goldstein author and co-founder of Insight Meditation Society

I See the Sun in Myanmar (Burma) is the sixth book in the award-winning I See the Sun series.

Aye Aye’s family lives in a town on the Irawaddy River. Her mother is a nurse in a nearby hospital and her father is a fisherman. The story also provides an elementary introduction to Buddhist culture and the tradition of metta, a practice of saying phrases of loving-kindness.

Lush illustrations and a bilingual story in English and Burmese provide Aye Aye’s view of a quiet country in transition.

Children speak varied languages, have contrasting national and regional attire, foods and traditions. But they all have family, games and daily routines that make childhood similar at the core.

Our differences are not so strange; there is beauty and creative power in diversity.
