Ever been out in public with a child and had to answer a myriad of questions about the history of the National Gallery or the Esplanade? Out & About in Singapore has the answers for you! Illustrated in full colour, this sturdy, full-sized hardcover is a child-friendly guide to the sights and attractions of the Lion City.
Chock full of trivia and historical facts, this book covers Singapore’s attractions both well-known —including Gardens by the Bay and the Esplanade — as well as sights to see off the beaten track, such as Kusu Island and Peranakan cultural enclave in Joo Chiat. With such a great variety of things to do, this book truly does have something for everyone. Melanie Lee writes in bite-sized sections, easily read on the go or before an outing.
William Sim’s pencil illustrations lend warmth to every page. A realistic take on each attraction, the illustrations prepare kids for what they will see but also retain the artist’s perspective of life in Singapore. Additional culturally-based activities —creating a Deepavali candle holder or a Lunar New Year paper lantern — are accompanied by illustrations for better instruction.
Wonderful for ages 5 and up, Out & About in Singapore makes a lovely gift, souvenir of Singapore, or guide to the things to do and explore on the streets of Singapore.
