About the Programme

Reading in the Mother Tongue Language, while using books that are fun, allows parents to introduce their rich culture and language to their child at a younger age. This is important considering children are currently growing up in a predominantly English language environment. Melissa, a librarian and selector of Chinese language titles in the public libraries, will introduce must-read Chinese children’s collections and share practical tips in choosing fun Chinese books for parents and children to kick start their reading journey together. This session is meant for parents and educators.

About the Speaker

Melissa Choo is an Associate Librarian with the National Library Board. Her work provides her an opportunity to keep up with the reading trends in Chinese children’s books, and it brings her much joy to be able to share these with the community at the programmes she conducts and oversees for parents and children. As a former educator, Melissa observed that developing a habit of reading helps children master a language. Currently, she advocates for reading, especially in the Mother Tongue, in her daily work, which she enjoys greatly.
