KIDLIT SG NEW BOOKS 2022 _____ Presenting BABY KING AND FRIENDS by Chew Lee Ching, a series of bilingual (English & Chinese) board books introducing kids to our local parks

NOTE: This post is part of my blog series to celebrate SG kidlit titles released in 2022. More info about this showcase here. All the featured books and authors can be found here


Hi, I am Lee Ching, and writing stories for young children is a new interest developed in the last two years.

Confined to their homes during the circuit breaker, young children could not go outdoors or play with other kids. What I did was to bring the outdoors to them through my stories on the adventures of Baby King, a baby kingfisher, and his friends, as they visit the different parks of Singapore.

“Baby King and Friends” is a series of five bilingual (English and Chinese) board books. The stories aim to nurture an appreciation of nature as well as appeal to young readers’ curiosity. Simply written and colorfully illustrated, each story also contains a simple message.

The early childhood years are the best time to learn languages, and stories are a good way to do it. The books are supported by the Lee Kuan Yew Fund For Bilingualism.





Let's celebrate all these
wonderful new releases
