|“Thai Lullaby” to entertain Iranian kids||
Afarinegan published the book, which was translated from English into Persian by Farideh Khorrami
Written by Minfong Ho, the book is an endearing lullaby, during which a mother asks a lizard, a monkey, and a water buffalo to be quiet and not disturb her sleeping baby.
The book is a rhymed, repetitive, onomatopoetic text that employs the question-and-answer format, creating a lullaby without music.
The book’s illustrations firmly anchor this mood piece in northern Thailand. Pictures combine cut paper, ink line, and watercolor in a lush, yet successfully somnolent atmosphere of browns and greens.
