Thai History Books for kids

Postby jariya76 » Tue Mar 14, 2017 5:02 pm

Can anyone recommend a good source of Thai ancient history books written in Thai for children? Especially interested in Sukothai and Ayuthaya periods.

You can find these a Chulabooks online: ... 6161816513

Here is a history book by David Wyatt which has been translated to Thai so you can use the English version to help you understand the Thai: ... 6167202532

Another interesting set of books (although perhaps more contemporary than what you are looking for) is a set of short biographies:

"The Last Siamese, Journeys in War and Peace" by Teddy Spha Palasthira and its Thai original "คนไทยใจสยาย" ดอย สภา ปรลเสถีย. Eavh volume is 350 baht, published by The Post Publishing Public Company Ltd. Interestingly for us language learners, the first biographical sketch is about So Sethaphutra, the creator of the great Thai-English dictionary.

Here's a book for elementary grade 4 students: ... 9742569877 and one for grade 6 students ... 9742569877

For a high school book sold by Ookbee see ... 0%B8%A14-6

Here is a children's book about Sukothai: ... 1%E0%B8%A2

That's it for now.

Thank you David. As usual you are more than helpful. David Wyatt was my faculty advisor at Cornell. One of my best friends there was Sunait Chutintaranond and I've read a bunch of his stuff in English. Heck I helped edit some of his papers at Cornell. But I want to be able to talk about Thai history in Thai so I thought kids books would be a better start than original texts in Thai.
