I’m thankful for the full turnout at the Playtime with Ye Ye storytelling at Imagine Native-Creative Fest for Kids at S.E.A. Aquarium on 5 June. There were more than 50 children in the room! We didn’t have enough paper, pencils and colour pencils!
A big batch of students in familiar yellow ‘TYS’ t-shirts attended. Well, TOUCH Young Arrows are familiar to me, but these children wouldn’t know that I used to work in TOUCH Community Services.
My Playtime with Ye Ye illustrator Haw Shing Yee painted Once Upon A Whale specially for our session in the Fest. This original one-of-its-kind artwork is available for sale! Contact me!
Then it’s time to go round the booths to say hullo to ‘old friends’ — The Little Red Helicopter, Ryan the Playground Expert, Keep Calm and Mother on and Robot in My Playground.
I didn’t spot Not in the Stars at the Straits Times Press booth, so I don’t know how this guest bought his copy. But I’m honoured to sign the book for dad and daughter!
