ONCE UPON A TIME “Once upon a time, there was no use saying ‘A is for apple’ because there were no such thing as letters.

“我是个喜欢上 NTUC 买菜的 后港媽媽”

If you wanted an apple, you would go into the shop and say ‘apple’, or point to it. It worked very well until...” Folk singer-songwriter Dawn Fung sings about a time when children first learnt to read.

Song 2 : The Strangers Song 6 : The Family Song (sing-a-long!)

When the walls of the families fall down stone hearts melt away When the walls of the families fall down troubles will not stay

What do you think the peddler is selling? Imagine it in this space. Draw/create whatever comes to mind!

Even when the dark clouds grow Our wills shall not be broken Even with the storms around Our peace will not be shaken

Children watch from soulless towers for the fields to play in Brothers fight against their own sisters just like orphans Fathers cut down blocks of strife burn them into pieces Mothers watch the rising flames tears flow into rivers
