Until now, there have been few collections of Singapore's legends written and illustrated with children in mind. Author Diane Taylor pulls together eleven beloved myths and tales often shared from mother to child, stories of how Singapore got its name or what happened to the ferocious tiger on the island. These stories introduce children to Singapore's multicultural past and it's colonial roots. Magical princesses, mermaids, tigers, and pirates will charm young readers and entertain adults. Dazzling watercolors will stimulate a child's imagination. Singapore Children's Favorite Stories is a superb collection for a child's library and a tool for educators interested in cultural diversity.
