Chakri dreads visiting his pesky cousins in Thailand's northern mountains. At least he has the ride home on the Kok River to look forward to... until an elephant gets in the way.
These new full-colour Sparklers Asian Stories are contemporary tales set across Asia and the Pacific. Students follow characters their own age in their local environments - at school, at home, in the village, visiting local landmarks - so they can observe everyday life in another culture.
This series has been written specifically for the Australian Curriculum priority: 'Asia and Australia's engagement with Asia' and provide a window into the social and cultural norms of our near neighbours, becoming valuable tools to build both literacy skills and cross-cultural understanding.
Suitable for Lower to Middle Primary.
