Using music and other creative means to attract children's attention to read and appreciate Malay language, literature, art and culture.

In last night's Channel Suria news coverage, there was a report on the Singapore Writers Festival 2011 which noted an event conducted by Associate Professor Hadijah Bte Rahmat, Head of NIE's Malay Language and Culture Division, to attract children's appreciation of the Malay language, literature and culture.

The event was based on two children's books that she had produced. These books were written in a combination of English and Malay, and included aspects of Malay architecture, poetry and values. The report added that the event also gave parents tips to inculcate the habit of reading in their children. It added that encouraging children to be interested in Malay language, literature and culture would fulfil the "Arif Budiman vision in the education system".
