Book Title: “วันที่น่าจดจำของเจ้าทามาโกะจอมขี้ลืม” [wan tîi nâa jòt jam kɔ̌ɔng jâo Tamago jɔɔm kîi lʉʉm] (The Unforgettable Day of Forgetful Tamago)

Story & Illustrations by:
Yuki Tachaya

Storyline: A fun story about an egg sushi called “Tamago,” who often forgets things. On one rainy day, Tamago went out and enjoyed himself doing the things he loved; swimming, chasing after butterflies and eating tempura! As he was playing, he realized that he had forgotten something. It bothered him all day as he tried to recall what he had forgotten again and again, but he could never remember what it was. After that rainy day, his life changed forever. Let’s find out what Tamago had forgotten on that day and how it changed his life.

Description: This is the first picture book ever created to teach the Thai language to non-native speakers. Learning Thai can be a lot of fun! Let Tamago show you. This might also be the first Thai book that you enjoy reading together with your child. The exciting and mysterious story, together with the unique, cute and colorful illustrations, will put a big smile on your child’s face – and yours!

Who is it for: This picture book is particularly made for non-Thai adults learning the Thai language (beginner to intermediate), especially those who learn better visually with images. However, the story was written and the illustrations were deliberately created to also appeal to children. Since the book is bilingual, Thai children can learn English from it as easily as non-Thai speaking kids can use it to learn Thai.

An English-only version (not suitable for learning Thai) is available for small English-speaking children to read. Your kid will not only love and enjoy Tamago’s happy story but will also learn to be responsible for his or her actions.

Below are the 3 versions of the book:

1. Learn Thai version (Thai script) – For English-speaking Thai learners who read Thai script
Content: Story in Thai & English, and vocabulary & sentences with English translations. (all written in Thai script) + audio of the story narrated in Thai + audio of the vocabulary and sentences
Number of pages: 84 double pages (24 of story in Thai, 24 of vocabulary, 24 of story in English & 12 of sentences)

2. Learn Thai version (Transliteration) – For English-speaking Thai learners
Content: Story in Thai & English, and vocabulary & sentences with English translations. (all written in transliteration) + audio of the story narrated in Thai + audio of the vocabulary and sentences
Number of pages: 84 double pages (24 of story in Thai, 24 of vocabulary, 24 of story in English & 12 of sentences)

3. English version – For English-speaking kids
Content: Story in English
Number of pages: 24 double pages

The Learn Thai versions are divided into 4 parts, starting with the main story in Thai, followed by vocabulary, the story in English, and then ending with sentences drawn from themes in the story.

After enjoying the story of Tamago, you’ll learn the vocabulary used in the story, as well as learn to build new sentences using additional examples constructed using the sentence structures from the story. Both the vocabulary and sentences come with English translations.

Difficulty: The story is written at an intermediate level using mostly simple vocabulary and simple, short, sentences. The vocabulary is correspondingly basic, and drawn from everyday life situations. But learners will still find a few more complex sentences and complicated vocabulary words included to challenge them, maintain their interest, and help build their skills.

Beginner native English-speaking readers will find the sentence by sentence translations and definitions help them to read quickly and maintain comprehension while still having fun; and intermediate learners will find the slightly more advanced material near the end of the book helps add to their understanding of the language. In other words, the book is designed to be educational and enjoyable for both beginners and intermediate learners.

For the Kindle format, the English translations are provided in the pop-up text boxes (simply double-click the texts in Thai and the translations will appear).
