‘There are Saga Seeds in our Pockets!’, a book about how a pair of preschool classmates experience the Malay culture past and present, was launched amidst a nostalgic backdrop of coconut trees.
At the launch event, there were role-play sessions where some characters from the book came alive and traditional games were also played in the cosy, The Pod, at the National Library Board Building. “There are Saga Seeds in our Pockets!” is a bilingual book that nurtures a strong foundation in language and heritage learning amongst young learners. Written by Maria Mahat, a local writer with media and early childhood background, and illustrated by watercolour artist Idris Ali, this book explores Singapore’s rich culture and heritage and includes an interactive element, “The Museum Song”.
Towards the end of her speech, Maria aptly shared a valuable quote, “Don’t judge each day by the harvest you reap. Judge each day by the seeds you planted!”’ The seeds of learning about heritage, culture and languages have been sown through the publication of this book.
It was indeed a fun and enriching time at the book launch. Once again, heartiest Congratulations to Maria and her team!
