"No Worms For Dinner", a delightful tale inspired by Chek Jawa

Category : books

No Worms For Dinner is delightful story about marine life at Chek Jawa depicted in a beautifully drawn picture storybook written and illustrated by Anna Lois Lai, a student of Raffles Girls' School.

We were first told about this by Tan Beng Chiak during the Biodiversity of Singaapore Symposium (BoSS) in July 2003. She had appraoched Anna, whom she knew was good at drawing. Anna says on the last page of the book, "I had never been an ardent nature lover". However, after "readings, research and discussions", she declares, "I had become a staunch nature enthusiast!"

They say its suitable for children between the ages of three and nine. I feel anyone who has spent any time at Chek Jawa, would enjoy the relaxing read. It includes 36 pages of colourful pictures and a 4-page-long glossary describing some of the animals that appear in the story. It was published by Raffles Girls' School (Secondary) in October 2003, costs S$12 and proceeds go to the Nature Society (Singapore).
