Find the Book!

In Singapore, National Library Board (NLB) holds a very good collection of children's book and they can be borrowed free. Otherwise, good English book can be purchased locally, eg Borders, Kinukuniya, or online Kinukuniya BookWeb, or the good old (some forwarding service such as vPost will save the international shipping charges). From Dangdang or Amazon CN you can find a large collection of Chinese book at good price (though the spectrum of quality is wide too - as a trade-off). Some English classics are translated into Chinese - it can be an interesting read.

Guess How Much I Love You (1994)

From the backcover - "How much can you love someone? Little Nutbrown Hare wants to show Big Nutbrown Hare how very much he loves him - but love as big as his is very hard to measure!"

Everyone will be touched by the tender conversation between the little and his dad. The little is enthusiastic in expressing his measurement of love, and you can expect some interesting answer from the dad.
