Lao book - What's in the Sky? cover

Have an interest in space?  Or perhaps you need some help explaining outer space, the solar system and the universe in Lao language?  Found a wonderfully useful book for that.  Although it's aimed at young readers, it definitely proves useful for all ages.

It's written bilingually in both Lao and English.  What's more, is that it's chalk full of beautiful photos from NASA.  In total it has 56 colourful pages and dimensions of 21cm x 30cm.

It should be noted that the book wonderfully peppers in additional snippets of information not specifically outlined in the table of contents.  Examples of this include an explanation on lights years and also a brief section on the German astronomer Johannes Kepler.

Definitely recommend picking up a copy if you're interested in this topic or if you're a school teacher teaching Lao kids.
