This book is a magical collection of twenty five traditional nursery rhymes and chants, all of which are about the animals and birds of Thailand. Despite first impressions, many Thai nursery rhymes are not really nonsense verses at all, but have been recited to children by their parents and grandparents for hundreds of years, in order to teach them something about the creatures that share their world.

Sadly, throughout the course of time, many of these ancient rhymes and chants seem to have become all but forgotten by the modem generation of Thai children and this book is an attempt to preserve them before they are lost forever, as well as introducing them to the children of other countries.

Beautifully illustrated with vibrant pictures that give the reader as much of an insight into everyday Thai life as do the rhymes themselves, this book will captivate and delight children of all nationalities and ages, as well as providing them with a great deal of knowledge about the people of Thailand and the natural history of the country.

As well as the pictures and text (the rhymes are reproduced in both English and phonetic Thai language) this book also contains a list of the meanings of many of the rhymes and chants included, which will enable parents in countries all over the world to teach a valuable lesson about a different culture to their children in a way in which is both informative and fun.
