Most Bhutanese instruction is done in English - despite the evidence in this letter that it is a second language.

The young people I met in 2001 spoke almost colloquial English.

Lois, I first read your book, The Giver, to my oldest child 13 years ago. I fell in love with it. I must say it is my favorite book of all time. Now I have the pleasure of reading it again to my youngest children. (I have 5 children.) What a delight to read it again and catch the things I missed before. Thank you for your insight, your tenderness, your wisdom in a world that seems just a little crazy. I love it all over again! Thanks for being a giver of wisdom and for helping us see our world full of color and possiblity!
