Elaine Russell is the author of the middle reader books Martin McMillan and the Lost Inca City, and Martin McMillan and the Secret of the Ruby Elephant as well as the adult novel Across the Mekong River. She has volunteered extensively with the organization Legacies of War, whose mission is to raise awareness of the effects of war-era bombing in Laos. Thailand native Patcharee Meesukhon has illustrated numerous children's books for publishers in Thailand, Australia, India and other parts of the world.

The All About Asia series is the children's version of a folklore handbook, a user-friendly encyclopedia, a DIY manual for experiencing an Asian country's culture from a youth's point of view. Appreciation for Thailand's heritage will quickly follow the reading of this book. -Kirkus Cheerful contemporary illustrations depicting smiling rice-pickers and rosy-cheeked street-food vendors are inviting but cast an overly idyllic charm that will leave readers erroneously convinced that Thailand is, above all, a tropical paradise. -Booklist Older children will love All About Thailand: Stories, Songs, Crafts and Games for Kids. It is packed with all kinds of fun learning activities about Thailand, from stories and songs to recipes and games. Kids can practice speaking a few words of Thai, learn more about elephants, or make their own shadow puppets! This is one my son really enjoys reading, and that I steal from my kids' room to read for myself! Would also be perfect for the classroom or a homeschool unit. The pictures are very cute and colorful. I like Thai games because they are very fun. It is very interesting to see the Indian epic Ramayanam in Thailand, where it is called Ramakien. These are the reasons why I like All About Thailand. -Roshini, Age 7, All About Thailand really is all about the country complete with some great recipes, a few fun games, and craft ideas, and I love this series. I wish they had books like this for all of the countries of the world. I would spend those hundreds of dollars to get these books...Also confession, I did not bother with going to the library for more books because I love this one so much. -Adventures in Mommydom blog There's so much contained within the 64 pages of this hard-cover book it would be crazy to attempt to digest it all at once! This book has a bit of everything in it. There are recipes to try as well as crafts to make. It is full of so much information and is a wonderful introduction to Thailand for any child. This book (and series) is perfect for any classroom that studies the various countries of Asia. It has a bit of everything from history to modern times as well as how children spend their free time. -Crafty Moms Share blog
