Kami and the Yaks

Reader's Tip!
My neighbor introduced me to this fantastic children's book and winner of the 2008 Schneider Family Book Award. Following up on yesterday's post about yak down - here's a resource you can read to the kids that will transport them to the rugged Himalayas. The story is about a deaf Sherpa boy in Nepal, who braves a storm in search of his family's yaks. The water color illustrations are beautifully done and the writing is simple and majestic.
