SINGAPORE: The Singapore Children’s Society has come up with a book to offer today’s children a glimpse of what childhood was like over the last 60 years.
Former Singapore President Mr S R Nathan, who mooted the idea of having such a book, also graced its launch on Saturday.
Titled "Singapore Childhood Our Stories Then and Now", the book is available in both English and Chinese.
At the book launch attended by some 150 people, four Nanyang Technological University students majoring in theatre took them on a trip down memory lane.
They assumed different personas from the various decades to reflect the changes in Singaporeans’ childhood through the years.
Mr Nathan said: "Improving the quality of life for children has been one of our most striking achievements as far as health and education are concerned. We still have work to do when it comes to psychological health and well—being, since modern life is fast and more demanding."
