TTDI Library

  1. Factfinders Junior Atlas
  2. Gunung Berapi dan Gempa Bumi oleh Terry Jennings – it’s in Malay, so I thought it would appeal to M more, I like the science projects realted to volcanoes and geology/minerology in general. Havent’t done any, and boooks are due!
  3. Restless Earth by Terry Jennings – big, clear fonts, good diagrams and pics, covers a whole lot on volcanoes, types galore.
  4. Our Planet: Earth (Belitha Press) – I like the step-by-step  illustration on how Earth was formed
  5. Marvellous Maths – Multiplication (Cherrytree Books)
  6. Ginger by Charlotte Voake – kids are into cats now, but there’s a phrase in this book: “Naughty cat!”, H2 took a liking to saying it these days, esp. when he sees a cat! Oh well.

  1. Multiplying and Dividing – Maths Magic by Clemson & Clemson
    •  some ok activities, good for a library shelf, wouldn’t buy myself
  2. A Child's Introduction to the... A Child’s Introduction to the Night Sky: The Story of the Stars, Planets, and Constellations–and How You Can Find Them in the Sky by Michael Driscoll, Meredith Hamilton (Illustrator)
    • the star map is for the northern hemisphere and is cellotaped in between the flap and front cover anyway, so no exploring the chart..haven’t see M reading it yet..
  3. Mengenali Planet by Jacqueline Mitton, Terjemahan Zubaidah Abdul Rahman
    •  just to expose to the Arabic naes of planets and for an easier read for M, some of the English books on this subject is a put off for her.
  4. Imran Kawanku by Ghazali Ngah Azia
    •  M read this and enjoyed it, a good book by a familiar author, I think I’ve read his books as a child, good for my 8 yo, not too many unknown words, just enough to increase her vocab.It’salso written in very good standard even classical Malay, a classic, not like most Malay novels currently spewed out, although good but still not A. Samad Said’s standard kwim?
  5. Peristiwa di Langkawi by Mohd. Tajuddin Hj. Abdul Rahman
    • meant for H to read, but really not enganging enough for a beginner reader
  6. Ancaman Bawah Tanah by Suriana Syazleen
    • two in one story and facts book in Malay about Earth Geology, good exposure to M for better understanding of the earth structure, volcanoes, earthquakes, rock types and earth’s position in the solar system. Note that  pluto is still a planetin this book!

So, I gave M a notebook for writing out the book title, author and to list new vocabulary to look up in the dictionary. No summarising or questions yet. She goes to school for most of the day, ,so not much time for exploring much.
