Primary 3 Social Studies Readers

Last month, I was happy to attend a launch of new readers for the Primary 3 Social Studies programme. The main reason for my attendance was to see my books -- I wrote three of the readers -- finally in print! I enjoyed researching and writing the books but there is nothing like reading the stories fully illustrated! I hope the P3 children will enjoy reading these stories in their classes.

Ah Kong's Farm is a story about Ah Kong who has a farm growing vegetables and fruits. One day, he is asked to change his farm or give it up. What will Ah Kong do?

Mr HDB tells the story of Mr Lim Kim San, the first Chairman of the Housing and Development Board (HDB), and how he helped build homes for Singaporeans.

Getting Around traces the changes in transportation in Singapore from the days of rickshaws and carriages to cars and trains.
