Uncles at Work- Ames Chen
This children’s picture book series highlights some of the invisible people in our society: domestic workers, construction workers, and bus drivers. Even though these workers have played and continue to play a key part in contributing to Singapore’s growth, they are often treated with disdain and disrespect.
These beautifully illustrated books offer heartfelt stories that help children appreciate these unsung heroes in our society. Uncles at Work portrays how a kind father teaches his son to bring food and drinks to the construction workers who are building their flat.
These stories remind us that these workers are people who have the same needs and dreams that we do. They demonstrate how seemingly simple acts of kindness can make a world of difference, both to the workers who receive and the child who gives.(Paperback)
