Where Is Tibet?

by

Where Is Tibet? Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

For children ages 3-10 (or adults wanting to learn some Tibetan), this sensitively rendered spiritual adventure story — reissued to meet the demand created by Hollywood's recent fascination with all things Tibetan — is written in both English and Tibetan. In Halpern's capable hands, two young refugees' quest for their native Himalayan land becomes the universal search for a place of peace, and she even works in a cameo appearance by the current Dalai Lama.

"The attractive illustrations successfully combine line drawing, watercolor, and colored pencil; authentic clothing, cultural relics, and artistic conceits are beautifully detailed in both primary and pastel colors". — School Library Journal

Synopsis:

Pema and Tashi, two Tibetan children, go on a spiritual journey to find their homeland. Each sentence is written first in the Tibetan alphabet, then phonetically as the Tibetan is pronounced, then in English.

Synopsis:

Two Tibetan refugee children search for their physical homeland and its spiritual heart.
