The IB Library offers 200 curated Ebooks for EYP and PYP readers in its Inquiry Based Digital Library. “Red Star Red Tara” by Zedar Thomey is one of the books in our collection.

The “Red Tara” in this book is a true living Tibetan nun named Tsering Tsomo who inspired the author. The story shows how a family lives and faces challenges in Tibet, from a child’s perspective. “Red Tara” reinforces global awareness by introducing topics that deal with diversity, culture, and empathy.

We are honored to share with you the foreward for “Red Star Red Tara” written by the Dalai Lama:

“Zedar Thomey …has created a charming, colorful book that I am sure young children will find attractive. The story takes place in Tibet, which will make readers in other lands aware of the existence of our country and the challenges our people face with hope in their hearts.” – His Holiness the Dalai Lama
