Awards, Reviews & Star Ratings

NZ Review "What I like about this series from Tuttle is that it covers a wide range of information, making it a one-stop shop for ways to teach kids about the culture of a country. From folk tales to activities, this book includes geography, songs, and crafts. You can pick and choose what to do and read about. With this one book, you cover nonfiction, fiction, and activities to experience a glimpse into the Thai culture. [nonfiction resource book, ages 8 and up. It also works for younger ages if an adult reads aloud and leads the activity portion.]" - PragmaticMom.com
