Snow leopard and yeti coloring bookDownload for FREE this lovely children’s story “Snow Leopard, the Yeti and the Girl who climbed Mount Everest” as a coloring book. The drawings are by Angie Espelage. 

It’s the story of a snow leopard in the mountains of Nepal who meets the Yeti and together they help the World Food Programme deliver food to children in the villages. The Yeti shows the snow leopard how many children don’t have enough to eat and why school meals are so important. These meals helped Nimdoma Sherpa as a child and she grew up to be the youngest woman ever to climb Mount Everest.
