In support of World Book Day 2019, Dandelion is collaborating with NLB and MOE-CPCLL to bring to you 2 FREE story sessions for families at Sengkang Public Library (Programme Zone)!
Session 1: Suitable for families with children aged 5-8
All Mummy Elephant wants is five minutes' peace from her energetic children, but chaos follows her all the way from the kitchen to the bath and back again. 《让我安静五分钟》 is an extremely enjoyable read not just children, but also for parents!
Session 2: Suitable for families with children aged 2-4
Elephant wakes up grumpy—until ding, dong! What’s in the surprise box at the front door? A hat! HOORAY FOR HAT! Elephant marches off to show Zebra, but Zebra is having a grumpy day, too—until Elephant shares his new hat and cheers up his friend. Off they march to show Turtle! The parade continues as every animal brightens the day of a grumpy friend.《你需要一顶帽子》 is an irresistible celebration of friendship, sharing, and fabulous hats!
We hope you had a great start to 2018 coz we did!
