Marvin did not have to go to school on Monday, May 5
because it was a public holiday. You might have noticed that important
places like the bank were shut and some of the shops were closed too. The
reason that lots of people had a holiday was to remember ‘Coronation Day’.
On this day people all over Thailand stop working so that they can think
about the ‘coronation’ of King Bhumibol and pay respect to him.
Coronation is a special word used to describe when the King is given his
crown and the power to rule the country. People want to stop and pay respect
to the King because he is a good man and he has helped many people in
Marvin wanted to know who the king of America was and I
told him that they don’t have a king because they have a president. So he
started to try to find out which countries have a royal family. He
remembered England, Holland and Spain. There are many more countries that
have a royal family. Do you know which ones they are? Write to Marvin and
tell him. He would really like to know. You can send your letters to:
