Books that make literacy fun!
Do you remember the excitement of rushing home to read a book that you hoped would never end?
We're Big Brother Mouse, a Lao-based, Lao-owned project. We started in 2006, publishing "books that make literacy fun!" Now we're also publishing books that provide older readers with access to the information, ideas, and pleasure people in many countries take for granted.
Until now, few books were published in the Lao Language. Many people in Lao villages never saw a book. Big Brother Mouse is already changing that, but we still have far to go.
Big Brother Mouse is based in Luang Prabang, Laos; we also have a shop in Vientiane and our books are sold in a growing number of other places. Please come visit if you're in Laos. If you're not, you can learn more from this website, and we hope you'll want to help.
