Editorial Reviews

The All About Asia series is the children's version of a folklore handbook, a user-friendly encyclopedia, a DIY manual for experiencing an Asian country's culture from a youth's point of view." - "Appreciation for Thailand's heritage will quickly follow the reading of this book." - Kirkus "Cheerful contemporary illustrations depicting smiling rice-pickers and rosy-cheeked street-food vendors are inviting but cast an overly idyllic charm that will leave readers erroneously convinced that Thailand is, above all, a tropical paradise." - Booklist "Older children will love All About Thailand: Stories, Songs, Crafts and Games for Kids . It is packed with all kinds of fun learning activities about Thailand, from stories and songs to recipes and games. Kids can practice speaking a few words of Thai, learn more about elephants, or make their own shadow puppets! This is one my son really enjoys reading, and that I steal from my kids' room to read for myself! Would also be perfect for the classroom or a homeschool unit." - "The pictures are very cute and colorful. I like Thai games because they are very fun. It is very interesting to see the Indian epic Ramayanam in Thailand, where it is called Ramakien. These are the reasons why I like All About Thailand." -Roshini, Age 7, "There's so much contained within the 64 pages of this hard-cover book it would be crazy to attempt to digest it all at once!" - " All About Thailand really is all about the country complete with some great recipes, a few fun games, and craft ideas, and I love this series. I wish they had books like this for all of the countries of the world. I would spend those hundreds of dollars to get these books? Also confession, I did not bother with going to the library for more books because I love this one so much." - Adventures in Mommydom blog"This book has a bit of everything in it. There are recipes to try as well as crafts to make. It is full of so much information and is a wonderful introduction to Thailand for any child. This book (and series) is perfect for any classroom that studies the various countries of Asia. It has a bit of everything from history to modern times as well as how children spend their free time." - Crafty Moms Share blog"
