    Hi! I just came across this review now in my search for a Songkran book to use in a lesson plan here in the United States in a few weeks. If you are still in Thailand, would you happen to know of a site over there where I may inquire about purchasing this book either stateside, or by internet or Air Mail?
    Thank you!

    Is this sold in the U.S.? I’d like to get this book to read to a preschool class.
