Myra here.

Every Sunday, we share the books that managed to find their way into our hands and into our bookshelves. This week, I am very excited to share more titles that we bought as part of our current research project – especially since we have been doing active research dissemination initiatives around Singapore.

As you may be able to deduce from the photos above (taken in Tanglin Trust School who hosted our talk with international school librarians around Singapore), quite a number of the titles I ordered in for our research project I learned from the International Youth Library in Munich.

I also made my daughter work by being my ‘assistant’ during a few of these talks around Singapore. Now on to the titles!
