Singapore Childhood: Our Stories Then and Now [Paperback]

by Koh, Jaime / Singapore Children's Society, .

  • (0)



The political, economic and social changes that have occurred over the past 60 years have shaped and transformed the childhood of children in Singapore. This book explores this transformation through anecdotes and memories through interviews with individuals hailing from different races and age groups, together with related archived materials from different sources. The components of childhood — birth, home, play, school, health and welfare — are revisited so as to provide useful insights about the past to young readers and at the same time serve as a nostalgic read for older readers.

Written in a simple and accessible manner and filled with numerous photographs and specially commissioned cartoons, this book will be of interest to anyone who is interested in knowing about childhood as it was and is being experienced in Singapore.
