CuRioUS: Come on an unforgettable READING journey with Us!

Lok Min-Ai Lydia & Yao Shuohan

“CuRioUS: Come on an unforgettable READING journey with Us! is a series of mass reading sessions to promote intergenerational bonding between elderly in homes, children and their parents. These families volunteer their time to care for seniors and make them feel that they are still a part of our community.

A typical reading and interaction session will involve a child reading out their favourite English children’s book to an elderly, alongside with translation by his/her parent. Thereafter, parents and child will engage the elderly by discussing their thoughts about the book, as a starter for deeper conversations, between all 3 generations. The parent’s main role would be to bridge the gap between the child and elderly generation, nurture and enable intergenerational bonding to take place.  The series of mass reading engagement sessions are designed in such a way that an elderly will get to interact with both parent and a child.
