The story of Rimau the tiger gets told at Animal Friends, a small panel display exhibition that is touring three regional libraries in Singapore, from now till September 2021.
Animal Friends Exhibition
Rimau is a baby Malayan tiger who travels to Singapore in search of new animal friends. She gets to meet four animals native to Singapore – a dugong, a smooth-coated otter, a red jungle fowl and an oriental pied hornbill.
Through the story and write-ups at the Animal Friends exhibition at the library, children can learn about the relationship between people and the natural world. Information about the animals is presented on round flip panels which kids can spin around.
There is a simple picture puzzle for kids to interact with too.
Kids can listen to an audio narration of the story by NLB Teen Reading Ambassadors Letitia Chen, Miko Rahardjo and Surabhi Deshpande by scanning a QR code printed on the display panel.
With the location being the library, you may wish to make use a set of earphones to listen along.
