I have been reading the Manee series with some of my upper intermediate students this past year. Reading the series as a teacher does bring back the memory of reading it as a child learning how to read in Thailand. It is also an artifact of the “good old day” in Thailand.
March 11 is apparently the birthday of the Thai teacher who wrote the series. You can read more of the post about how Google celebrated her birthday from the Bangkok Post here: Google honours revered Thai teacher with logo Doodle. If you have not heard of the Manee series, the series is a great way to learn Thai reading. It can be found for a free download on the internet.
Keep on reading. Keep on learning.
