Phnom Penh Post, 23 May 2014

French NGO Sipar and Cambodia Airports – partners in the fight against illiteracy – this week published the second children’s book in a Khmer-language series titled Exploring Angkor.

In February 2012 the first book in the series was published, titled Exploring Angkor, Part 1: Angkor Wat Temple and Bayon Temple, which outlines the history of the two temples and gives explanations about the wall sculptures.

The new book published this week is titled Exploring Angkor, Part 2: Angkor Mysteries.

Hok Sothik, director of Sipar in Cambodia, said 5,000 copies of this new book have been published and launched at Monument Books in Siem Reap on Wednesday.
