[BHE 244] Pansing Books and International Titles from Book Depository


Myra here.

Every Sunday, we share the books that managed to find their way into our shelves either from the library, sent to us for review, or bought from really nice bookstores online, book shops where we live, or during our travels. This week I am glad to share a few titles sent to me for review by Pansing Books, and a few that I bought for our research project that looks into building a database of multicultural/ international titles that may be used to facilitate social and emotional learning and will be shared with teachers here in Singapore.
