Book : Under the Sky (Chinese)

In conjunction with Read! Singapore (2013), the National Library Board published a series of books called Under the Sky in four languages – English, Malay, Chinese and Tamil. These all come with audiobooks.

I was introduced to the Chinese stories at an Audiobooks Sharing Session at the Ang Mo Kio library yesterday. The story we read and listened to was “Two Luggages” by Zhou Chang, a Cultural Medallion receipient and a retired Chinese Language teacher.

People listen to audiobooks for various reasons. We listened to the CD while following the text. Other than learning the correct pronunciation of a few rarely used characters, I think it would be more expedient to read the whole book than to listen to it.
