Two weeks ago, I was asked by the Ministry of Education Headquarters here in Singapore to conduct a short session for their Library Exhibition – about picture books that promote values-based education. I welcomed this talk as I always love talking about my favorite things in the world: books, books, books. Here are a few photos taken from the event. Many thanks to Suhailah for sending me the photographs.
Here I am talking about my favorite book of all times: Shaun Tan’s The Arrival
And I talk about Suzy Lee’s wordless picture books: her border trilogy and wordless art.
There are a few more picture books that I talked about – particularly picture book biographies as created by Kathleen Krull and Don Brown, multicultural books, wordless picture books, those which touch on immigration, and lovely books done by Ed Young and Allen Say. Hopefully in the next exhibition I can discuss poetry and more on nonfiction.
