by Suchen Christine Lim
illustrated by Cheng Puay Koon
This is a set of books used for shared reading in preschools. There is humour to enliven the course of teaching children to read as the stay-home father teases his son, allowing the boy to teach him how to fry eggs. Cross-cultural elements are introduced as mum is ostensibly Chinese while dad is Sikh.
