August passed in the blink of an eye! We had an extremely fruitful month, participating in multiple events, connecting with concerned parents, educators & storytellers, as well as preparing for an even more exciting last quarter of 2018!
National Day @ Wan Qing Yuan
It was great being back at Wan Qing Yuan again, this time to be part of their National Day celebration! We had an interactive storytelling session on one of our favourite local icons - the Merlion! We had a great time listening to the story《鱼尾狮不见了》(recently published local picture book for children!), drawing the amazing things the Merlion can do, and penning down words of appreciation for it!
Free Audio Story with Speak Mandarin Campaign
Our 2nd year collaborating with Speak Mandarin Campaign in producing audio stories for children! This year, we will be featuring 5 locally published children's picture books. The first audio story 《我一定能做到》is out on Speak Mandarin Campaign's Soundcloud account. The NLB call number is also provided, so you can borrow it conveniently from the public libraries. If you would like to purchase a copy, head over to Maha Yu Yi's online store now! There is also a suggested post-reading/post-listening activity that you can complete with your little one :)
Dandelion @ Mother Tongue Languages Symposium 2018
Our founder, Miss Liang Huiyu, was invited to be one of the speakers at the Mother Tongue Languages Symposium. She conducted a Fun with Parent-Child Reading workshop, where she shared tips and techniques on how to make parent-child reading fun and meaningful!
