Aya & Bobby Discover Thailand: -Land of Smiles- (Volume 1) Paperback – November 7, 2016
"This book is a terrific primer for children traveling to Thailand. The story perfectly illustrates the excitement of going on a plane trip to a foreign country and will help children prepare for each step of their journey. The illustrations are vivid and colorful. Children will enjoy pointing out the details in the illustrations, including the delicious-looking food and sweet animals and fish. Even adults will learn a thing or two about Thailand's friendly people and beautiful national treasures. Recommended for children traveling to Thailand, or for those who have the hearts of world-travelers!" - The Children's Book Review
"I also appreciate how relatable Aya and Bobby are. My kids were excited to not only share the relative ages of Aya and Bobby, but they also have the same pajamas. In the same color. The book gives a realistic view of what a trip to Thailand looks like for kids. I like the combination of the many unfamiliar new sites, with the reminder of the familiar activities kids have even though they're far from home. The stop at the beach and to eat ice cream adds a realness. This is what family vacation is all about. It's about finding a way to make it enjoyable for all everyone. It's not just an endless loop of learning and discovering. Don't get me wrong, learning and exploring are vital aspects of traveling. However, it's nice for kids to see that they can still do things, like eat ice cream or learn to fly a kite, while on vacation.
