A leading book distribution company throughout South-East Asia called Books@53 travelled all the way from Sukhumvit 53 in Bangkok to offer a range of international books to children on the island. Books@53 is one of the first bookstores in Thailand, established in memory of the founder who died in World War II.
Today, the company imports books from the UK and the US and goes all over the country to hold book fairs. They sell English, Thai and Chinese books.The company set-up bookshelves in our Primary Common Area for children and their parents to have the opportunity to obtain books that may not be available on Samui.
This adds to an already good start of the Academic Year as families top up their home libraries with new academic and PSHE-related (Personal, Social and Health Education) books.
