[Pre-AFCC Glitter] Meet Emily Lim

Blogging connects you to people all over the world!

In February 2012, I wrote a postfor Perfect Picture Book Friday and I included a link to a post done by Singaporean children’s author, Emily Lim-Leh. I was pleased when she responded by visiting my blog and commenting. Little did I know that this would be the start of a wonderful relationship.

This year, Emily is on the planning committee for the 2013 Asian Festival of Children’s Content…an international conference of writers, illustrators, publishers and creators of all types of children’s media. I was honored AND amazed when Emily invited me to participate.

I’ve already spotlighted one of Emily’s many wonderful picture books here for Perfect Picture Book Friday, but I wanted to share Dr. Myra Garces-Bacsal’s interview with her that just appeared on one of my favorite blogs which encourages kids to become lovers of books and reading, Gathering Books. I hope you will click on the link and read all about the upcoming event!

    • I am not sure, Marylin. I know that there was a photo gallery as well as archived presentations from previous years on the AFCC site. I’ll see if I can find out. 🙂 I’m glad I will have so much free time to attend the other programs and presentations, including Emily’s. 🙂


    • I think you would also! I did a review of it here: https://viviankirkfield.com/?s=prince+bear+and+pauper+bear And there will be a special theater presentation of it on Saturday, May 25 at the AFCC..”Storybook Theatre is a ‘live’ interactive mobile show created by The Learning Connections and performed at preschools by professional stage actors for children and their parents. Storybook Theatre promotes reading and cultivates the love for books using theatre & performing arts as a platform to bring the stories to ‘live’ and stimulate children’s imagination and participation. The heartwarming stories we choose are based on universal themes and celebrate positive values.”I get in to Singapore at 12:05am…I’ll get to the hotel and grab a couple of hours of sleep and then head over to the festival venue so I can meet Ms. Lim and watch the presentation. Her picture books are going to be used in schools throughout Singapore!
