Big Brother Mouse and Lao literacy

In a June 28th article by the Wall Street Journal is a discussion in part on the Big Brother Mouse program in Luang Prabang. It's a community center where monks and other locals can practice their English every day with visiting tourists. They also publish books in English and Lao, inviting tourists to buy them, ($1 to $3 each), and distribute them to children, teachers and others as the tourists go through other parts of Laos.
