My Feelings Book---translated into Indonesian

I realize that my readers probably have no use for a book translated into Indonesian; however, did you realize that 1 out of every 30 people in the world live in Indonesia?  It's the 4th most populous country in the world. 

When we visited there this past summer, we stumbled upon a school in Bali for handicapped children.  Keep in mind that public schools in Indonesia do not offer special education---so this school is private, and seems to be funded by kind folks who are Dutch.  I totally loved the school, and the short visit.  Kids are kids--same everywhere in most ways, and I saw my American kid friends in the faces of these Indonesian children. 
During my short visit, it seemed to me that the kids could use some simple adapted books in Indonesian, so my wonderful daughter (living in Indonesia volunteering for the Peace Corps) translated the feelings book I had found on Boardmaker Share.  Here it is.  Most of you won't need it, but I'm hoping that this finds its way to that little school in Bali.

  1. Thanks for posting the books in Bahasa Indonesia. They have found a home with me! I am an SLP in Wilmington, NC and I have traveled to Indonesia 5 times to work with some children with autism. I plan to share these books with my friends there!

    1. Thank you so much for this comment! What part of Indonesia do you visit? I want to have my daughter help me translate a few more books. Are there any you are interested in?

    2. I have visited Surabaya to work with a small Autism program there. I love your books and would love to have one of the books about ocean animals translated into bahasa Indonesia. They obviously can relate to fish and ocean themes!
