Timmy and Tammy: A Giveaway [CLOSED]


I wrote about a new-ish series of books, Timmy and Tammy by Ruth Wan-Lau and illustrated by Eliz Ong, here. And while I continue to have issues with how few commercially-published fiction titles feature non-Chinese children as protagonists in realistic, contemporary settings (as detailed here), I also admit that Timmy and Tammy are well-loved in the notabilia household.

The Toddler is beginning to read high frequency sight words, or words she can automatically recognize in print without having to use any strategies to decode, and the series’ Level 1 books are perfect for my emergent reader. She loves spotting the familiar sights of her adopted home, such as the Botanic Gardens and Changi Airport. But her favorite book of this set is Make Pineapple Tarts, as she just assisted in making a batch for the Lunar New Year in preschool!

  10. I’m currently homeschooling my girl and would like to include this in my lesson plan. I’m planning on reading the book to her and then bringing her to various places (like the Botanic Gardens) or to do the activities (like baking pineapple tarts) together with her to have a real-hands on experience as well as to foster our family bonding! Definitely looking forward to this! But before we get there, can I win the books first please? :)
