Read what our past participants have to say about this programme!

Discover Picture Books! presented the opportunity for children to be exposed to different types of books, and also encouraged them in understanding there is no perfect art piece. 

- Teacher Beverley, Kindle Garden 

This learning journey has inspired me to look beyond our current curriculum on occupations and community helpers to include authors, illustrators and publishers - who made discovering new worlds from books possible! Woods in the Books’ passion for literary and visual arts is truly infectious.

- Teacher Jiayi, Grace Orchard School
