About the Author

Elizabeth Rush
Elizabeth Rush lives in Brooklyn, New York where she rides bikes, bakes pie, and writes books. Twenty-six is her favorite number, but if she had to choose the three things she loves most about Myanmar they would be (in no particular order): monsoons, maroon monks' robes, and all those bells.

Khin Maung Myint
Born in Yangon, Myanmar, artist Khin Maung Myint was trained at the State School of Fine Art in Yangon, studying under U Thu Kha, U Lun Gywe, Maung Nyo Win and Win Pe Myint. Since 1995, his art has been shown at many group and solo exhibitions in Yangon, including one at the National Museum of Myanmar. Khin Maung Myint resides and paints in Yangon, Myanmar.

What a delightful way to introduce children to the various cultural aspects of Myanmar, in my opinion the most interesting country in Southeast Asia. And it was also a great idea to have each page written in English and Burmese (Myanmar) script.

This book introduces young readers to things like the famous pagodas and popular sightseeing spots in Myanmar, as well as the country's famous festivals, cultural icons (trishawsm thanaka paste, etc.), cuisine, and and other traditions. The only thing I think they missed was including a more detailed map of the country, showing some of the major cities, as well as neighboring countries, giving the kids some context as to how big the country is and where it's located in relation to the rest of Southeast Asia. Otherwise, it's a beautifully illustrated book that is quite informative. I think it will captivate young readers.

I so enjoyed M is for Myanmar. For anyone who wants to instil a sense of wonder about the world in their children M is for Myanmar is a great way to start. The late night talk between two sisters as they fly towards Myanmar is charming. The whole book is part poem part traveler's journey and as such it is a joy. How can you explain to your kids that the world a is big and varried? M is for Myanmar is a good start. I also really like "hey willie see the pyramids."

Verified Purchase
I wanted to buy a book about Myanmar (Burma) for my niece, who is half-Burmese. This book stood out for two reasons: first, it explains aspects of Burmese culture in a simple-to-understand way, using the story of two sisters visiting the country as a framing device; and second, the story is written in Burmese script underneath the English translation. From reading this book, even I learned new things. While my niece loves the book, it has found a second use I didn't intend - my brother-in-law was so young when he left Burma that he has forgotten how to write in Burmese. He is using the book to help him relearn it!
