The Invisible People Series 1
The Invisible People will expand your little one's heart for the unseen but important people amongst us. This first series gives us a snippet of the life of domestic workers, construction workers, and bus drivers in Singapore.
Written by local author, Ames Chen, these beautifully illustrated books offer heartfelt stories that help children appreciate these unsung heroes in our society:
1. Aunty Goes Home depicts how a family helps their domestic worker discover her passion for cooking during her time with them. They empower her to achieve her dreams when it’s time for her to return home.
2. Uncles at Work portrays how a kind father teaches his son to bring food and drinks to the construction workers who are building their flat.
3. The Bus Driver is the story of how something as simple as the bus trip to school and the interaction with the bus driver can inspire and impact one’s growing-up years.
These stories remind us that these workers are people who have the same needs and dreams that we do. They demonstrate how seemingly simple acts of kindness can make a world of difference, both to the workers who receive and the child who gives.
Note: Sold as a set of 3 books, not available individually.
