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!
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!
