BOOK | Tashi and the Tibetan Flower CureRegular price $11.95
A Tibetan American girl helps her grandfather recover from an illness through the use of a traditional cure that focuses on friendship and compassion as partners in physical recovery.
"With a blend of detail and expressionism, the rich, jewel-toned paintings do a wonderful job of supplementing the text. The emotions Tashi feels-hope, discouragement, worry, and joy-are shown not just on her face but through her whole body as well. This heartwarming story is full of details and images that show what life might be like for a Tibetan-American child. Any second- or third-generation immigrant family will relate to the blending of two cultures, and all readers will relate to Tashi's concern, fear, and desire to help." -- School Library Journal
