Great set for foodies

I think it's a great set to introduce to kids who are into food. set in local Singapore context. While it may be quite wordy for those who aren't good/interested in Mandarin (like my child, I think it's a great way to kickstart conversations around the Chinese culture, and from there, to slowly and organically introduce Mandarin to the children.

We all got hungry right after reading, and went on an eating adventure as a family!

I read this every night now, we have the full series! Now that Chinese new year is round the corner almost every book is applicable and the exciting thing is to be able to share the food later, bring this book (bonus for being so flat and light and easy to carry) and read it right after eating. My child can quote sentences from the book and I too, have learnt and appreciate how to make these dishes from scratch!! I love it. There r also phrases that I’ve picked up from reading that I normally wouldn’t use, and started applying them as much as possible too!

Best Series for Foodies!!!!

Both my K level kid and I LOVE this series so much! 天光 and 亮亮 educate readers about local traditional foods through amusing stories of them learning to make the dishes. At the same time, they also inculcate good values like offering the first portion of food to their elders first, as a sign of respect. We have reread this series of books so many times, and always pull out the relevant ones before 中秋节 etc。 This series makes a great gift for overseas Singaporean Chinese too, as a way to stay connected to local food culture.

Every foodie kid should have it

My 4 year old son was very interested in Yu Sheng during the Chinese New Year celebration. When I saw these books, I knew I had to get them. I like the little activity at the end & also the narration on the symbolic meaning of the food. Not only my son is learning about local food, I’m learning too!

Local spin on traditional festival foods

Singaporean picture books about food in our LOCAL celebrations, which is rare to find.

The main characters of the picture books are a courageous sister and a playful brother, who attempt to help their families to prepare festive foods. This book crosses the boundary between being a factual book about the festival traditions and a fictional story. Being authored in Singapore, the illustrations are equally local, and easy to relate to – kids dressed in simple short sleeve clothes and barefoot, rather than traditional autumn wear for Chinese weather!

If I could improve one thing about these books, I would want them to include a recipe for the food too!
