(Textures 2020) The Story of the Redscarf 辛苦了,红头巾 (Chinese Storytelling for Kids)

Description
by Patrick Yee 余广达

Illustrator and author Patrick Yee (余广达), will read from his latest picture book The Story of the Redscarf. Written in a witty, light-hearted style and accompanied by eye-catching illustrations, it aims to introduce life of the previous generations to the young of today. Kids will be invited to connect with their roots by dressing up in Chinatown-themed costumes of Samsui women, ma jies (nannies) and coolies in the 1950’s. Bring your children along for a unique heritage experience and an unforgettable morning! Suitable for audiences 9 years and above.

本地绘本作家余广达以细致、感人的画笔,创作了这本《辛苦了,红头巾》。此部绘本绘图精美,通过叙述红头巾在新加坡工作、生活以及落地生根的故事,让孩子们有机会了解早期新加坡人民和外来劳工的生活面貌。作者也希望通过红头巾的故事,向孩子们宣扬“刻苦耐劳,不怕吃苦”的精神。

余广达将和同学们玩人物扮演的游戏,除了教导小朋友们折红头巾之外,他也会让上台的小朋友扮演红头巾,穿越时空回到五十与六十年代。此外,他也将通过有奖问答,让小朋友们对所阅读的绘本有更深刻的印象。
