Children's Literature - Natalie Gurr
The diverse traditions and cultures of Thailand are presented in a colorful, simple format in this accessible book. Comprehensible text of major Thailand holidays and celebrations are accompanied with bright and colorful photographs. Marriages, religious ceremonies and holidays are all described with enough detail to convey information without being dull. Young students will enjoy reading the snapshot views about Thailand while gaining an appreciation for the culture and country. Chakri Day, Loy Krathong, the Queen's Birthday, and the Royal Plowing Ceremony are just a few of the major holiday discussed. Interesting facts about history and modern Thailand are interwoven into the explanations. In addition to learning about traditions students will learn about several historical figures and events, such as Buddha, Queen Sirikit, and the establishment of a constitutional monarchy. Part of the "Cultural Traditions" series, each book contains a table of contents, glossary, and index, making it easy to find information. Reviewer: Natalie Gurr
