La Dolce Vita : Moral Values In Children

Parents out there would agree when I say that teaching moral values is not an easy thing. It's such a tall order that if I were a parent, I'd be really happy if I had some kind of teaching tool to use with my kid.

The Straits Times' Little Red Dot and Straits Times Press launched Eureka! - a book of life stories about history's greatest inventors and innovators. The stories illustrate different moral values and how enforcing each one in our lives is not only useful for us but for others too.

The best part? There are activities at the end of the chapters which also encourages parent-child bonding. Some of the content and activities are moe suitable for older children but I think parents can read through with the their younger children, explaining along the way. Modify the activities to suit your child's age and it'll be a great teaching tool. The book is available at leading bookstores in SG at $10 a copy. I've flipped through the book and think it's a great find. Probably will get one for teaching material and just for keeps.

Here's a link to read more about it.

Looks interesting . Should check it out on our next bookstore visit .
Thank raf for the info :D
and by the way don't forget to buy some cord spirit cause now hospital does not provide with that anymore.
And without that the cord will take a longer period to dries and drop off . ( based on xperience :p )
