Two sisters are on their way to visit Myanmar, their parents' birthplace. Hla, the older sister describes this far away place in vignettes and poems as colorful as the paintings that showcase this magical place. She tells of the Shwedagon Pagoda that shines like a hundred crazy stars, the majestic monastery where monks meditate, the fisherman who paddles with his legs and the yummy Mohinga noodle soup. Among tales of the Golden Rock and ringing bells, Hla brings Myanmar to life in a way guaranteed to enchant young readersand their parents. Bilingual text enhances this cultural immersion for language learners of all ages.
