Read Our World: SingLit Book Gift For Schools 2018

Read Our World: SingLit Book Gift For Schools 2018 is a school outreach initiative aimed at cultivating a love for Singapore stories amongst the next generation of readers. Schools are gifted with 15 books that they can choose from a curated list of literature from Singapore, or affectionately known as SingLit, across genres, forms, themes and languages, with the objective of complementing schools’ existing reading resources, while catering to different reading competencies and interests.

 

Singapore literature, affectionately known as SingLit, are stories about us, by us. SingLit captures our experiences, aspirations, cultures, in short, our lives. As Singapore identities evolve, our stories continue to remain important. They transform readers by exposing them to history, values and new perspectives. They help readers traverse the past, present and future and help awaken young readers to their own potential in doing so.

 

This pilot project hopes to support teachers as they introduce students to the diverse stories and experiences of our world. The curated list of SingLit books across genres, forms, themes and languages serves to complement schools’ existing reading resources, while catering to different reading competencies and interests. To help bring words to life, limited meet-the-author sessions are available for booking, as well as complimentary book display stands to help schools showcase the books.
