Three books from other cultures

The first one, The Road the Bethlehem by Elizabeth Laird, is from the ancient Christian traditions in Ethiopia. The pictures are exactly like the ones Husband brought from his two trips to that country! Next is a fable-like tale from India, Cloud-Tea Monkeys by Mal Peet and Elspeth Graham, and beautifully illustrated. The last one, Biblioburro, a True Story from Colombia by Jeannette Winter, tells of a still-current story of a man who volunteers to bring culture to remote places in Colombia. All delightful and telling us about the richness and the universal values of goodness, beauty and justice in far away cultures...
