Indonesian author Reda Gaudiamo has created a collection of stories of curious adventures and musings of a multicultural girl growing up in Indonesia with a Javanese mother and a Chinese-Indonesian father. Set in a time when children spent the day outside, listening to Lilis Suryani’s songs on the radio, and when race and gender would still go undiscussed, this is Na Willa’s story as she grows up unafraid to ask the big questions.

I’m glad the translator/publisher chose to keep the original words and explain them in order to help kids learn about Indonesian culture. The Adventures of Na Willa is a fun way to learn about Indonesia.

The fact that one single page was able to hook my son and keep him interested speaks volumes for this little red book.
