When I first saw the book, I wondered what Khakey was. After that I read the book and found out that Khakey was a snow festival that is celebrated in western Bhutan. The illustration is amazing and pleasing.

When I first came across the book,I was intrigued by the title of the book and I wondered what Khakey is and I became even more curious when I saw that the author is only 13 years old. So I read the book and understood that Khakey is a snow festival which is celebrated in the western part of Bhutan. I would like to celebrate Khakey if it also snows in the place where I live.
Khakey is a very beautiful tradition and we must all preserve the tradition.
The illustrations in the book are very interesting and beautiful,and the book is reader friendly. I would like to recommend this book to all my friends for it tells us about the beautiful tradition.

Khakay is another book by Yeshey Tsheyang Zam, her other book is Lolay. I read both her book and now I am excited to read her Dzongkha translated version of both Khakay and Lolay.
In this book, the author has shared an old culture of celebrating the first snowfall by trying to sneak in a snowball in their neighbour's house. If you are able to do this, your family wins a treat in return.
In the story, a little girl is able to do the task and in return, her family wins two treats from two families.
This snowfall I am going to do this with my neighbour.
longing to read her Dzongkha Books soon.
