The story tapped on the angle of Santa’s visit to Singapore and his adventure with a Samsui grandma. Through the story, children learn about Samsui women, through its simple language and heartwarming storyline. The book also highlighted the admirable qualities and various contributions made by the Samsui women during the building of early Singapore.

This is Kinderland’s second participation in SCCL’s Christmas picture book series’ launch, a series that encompasses Singapore’s culture. Kinderland first participated in 2019, during the launch of the first book titled “Where’s the Chimney?” During the first session, Ms Nur Ashikin presented the story with Ms Tng Bee Tin (Chinese Teacher) and the children from Kinderland Preschool @ Hougang.

Through this partnership with SCCL, we hold firm to our belief in enriching the children’s lives. This partnership also gave the children the opportunity to enjoy learning English and Chinese and learn about Singapore history and local culture. We want our children to become lifelong readers and learners who are rooted in Singapore and possess a strong sense of self-identity.

这是馨乐园第二次参与新加坡华文教研中心以本地文化特色为主的圣诞系列绘本新书发布会,上一次是在2019年参与了此系列第一本绘本《烟囱在哪里呀?》(英文版和华文版)的发布会,Ms Nur Ashikin和后港馨乐园的汤美珍老师和小朋友进行了故事表演(联合早报 相关报道)。
