Children's Fiction Books with a Thai Theme

Meredith
The list author says: "This is a list of fiction children's books that have a Thai theme or character. I've been researching and collecting a library of English-language books about Thailand or with a Thai theme for several years, and I wanted to provide a place for others to easily access a list of my findings. I will be separately creating a list of children's non-fiction books about Thailand as well as a list of adult books (both fiction and non-fiction) with a Thai theme and a list of books containing collections of Thai folk tales. I'm going to eventually try to upload photos of those books that don't already have photos included in Amazon's database. Enjoy! (I'd love to hear from anyone who finds this list useful.)"

"Not a Thai story per se in that it is about the Hmong, but because of the refugee experience in Thailand and the presence of Hmong in Thailand, I have included a few of Hmong-themed books that I happen to own."

"Another refugee story, this time Cambodian, but also set in Thailand. Since my list is Thai-focussed, I only have a smattering of books listed that feature Hmong, Lao, Cambodian, and other refugees. If you know of others that are set in Thailand, please let me know!"

"This picture book features what appears to be a Hmong family in a village in Thailand. Although it is never directly mentioned that the family is Hmong, based on their attire, that's my best guess. If you know otherwise, please let me know!"

"This is a picture book with gorgeous, full-page color illustrations on every page. The text of the story is printed in the back of the book, and I believe it originally came with a tape/cd recording of the story, but my copy doesn't have that. I liked the idea of children just making up your own story (for themselves in their heads) while looking at the detailed illustrations."
