Testimonials from Parents
“The Timmy & Tammy books are good, simple and illustrates the real life.” EeJean Lim
“My kid loves the Timmy and Tammy books She’s asking where to get the other books advertised at the back (Botanic Gardens etc)”
“What I love most is the local flavor.” Serena Chew
“The books really make the gift unique to Singaporeans.” Adeline, sharing her view on the SG50 Baby Jubilee Gift Pack items
“Still bleary-eyed and disheveled hair, he hit his favorite book of the week first thing in the morning nonetheless, just as he did the last thing before he slept last night.”
“Something which I used to do a lot with the boys before I had three kids – “Experiential learning” using the Timmy & Tammy readers! Started with the MRT today. We read the book on the train, told them about the safety of boarding and alighting trains, observed people who are ‘tall’, ‘short’, ‘small’, ‘big’, people who are looking ‘out’, ‘in’, ‘up’, ‘down’, though people nowadays look down on their phones! We still have the food court, Singapore flyer, and National Library to go!” Yunn Tyan
“A charming series of leveled readers set in local contexts that are familiar to young children.” Robert Sim
“J is in love with your book about visiting the fire station, especially after the visit! He likes role playing while we read the book to him!” Sarah
“But what I really like is the set of books which is so meaningful for parents to read to their children about everything iconic in Singapore! Reading is a lifetime investment hence I believe encouraging parents to share that bond with children is a great start!” Nadia, sharing her view on the SG50 Baby Jubilee Gift Pack items
