Bring books to life and encourage your child’s love of reading at this year’s #BuySingLit Festival!

We probably don’t have to tell you that reading to children is amazing, mama. From fostering language and literacy development, to being a wonderful bonding activity with your bub, there’s basically no downside! So when we heard about the #BuySingLit festival celebrating local books and authors, and that it includes heaps of kid-friendly events and activities, we obviously wanted to get the word out pronto!

#BuySingLit is all about celebrating stories from Singapore, from local authors, to independent bookstores, to literary non-profits, to homegrown publishers who make sure Singapore’s stories get told.

With the theme “Read Our World”, this year’s festival will feature more than 50 book events islandwide. Events will be held in all four of Singapore’s official languages,with heaps of hands-on and experiential activities for kids! Mark your calendars for:

Besides these cool activities to keep kiddos busy, families can also look forward to fun book fairs at local shops like Popular and Woods in the Books. There will also be a pop-up bookstore and reading corner throughout the weekend at Forum The Shopping Mall, where children can curl up with a good read, participate in storytelling sessions with local students, and even meet local authors.

Kids will also delight in the children’s installation at A City of Booksthat’s happening at Bras Basah Complex from 9-18 March, where they’ll have the opportunity to interact with local storybook superstar and kid detective, Sherlock Sam, who will be brought to life in a fantastical playground on the spiral staircase!

Besides the obvious benefit of bringing books to life, we love that so many of these activities are FREE! Be sure to check out for a full rundown of kid- and parent-friendly events, mama, along with updates and all registration details.

Who’s ready to turn the page to next weekend?!
