Last week, we paid a visit to the newly opened Giant Hypermarket in Bandar Kinrara. Saw their big banners all over LDP for quite some time already, finally they opened their door, so have to give them face and pay them a visit. Bored with IOI, Sunway and One Utama already.
My daughter saw a hugh baby tiger and insisted to stop to check it out! Haha, it was cute actually.
Looks like a real tiger waiting to catch its prey of the day!
How come the tiger was sitting on a pile of books? Because it was a children’s book counter. Very soon, before we realize it, a salesman came approaching us and told us about their products. OMG, I don’t like salesmen and what the hell nobody does.
Anyway, since my daughter likes the tiger, we just gave them a minute to explain their stories.
They were from a famous publisher and distributer of children’s book called Scholastic. From the website, they claim that they are leader in educational technology, which is helping children around the world to Learn and Read.
But later, they explain that this is Scholastic’s partnership publisher – Grolier‘s book stall.
He further introduced me one of the educational book set which is costed a whooping RM2300. OMG, that’s such an expensive book set. Anyway, it contains the following items (read if you are interested but most likely you have fallen asleep already):
- 10 sets of play and learn activities about colors, shapes, number…
- A few story books and CDs (can’t remember how many already, perhaps about 6 of them)
- 30++ “I wonder why, encyclopedia books”
- A few books on common words and objects which can help your children to pick up more than 3600 vocabularies in each book. They cover a lot of different categories such as zoo, school, adjectives, actions (eat, jumps…)
I really hope I could afford to buy this set of books for my little girl to cultivate her reading habits, but RM2300 is just too expensive. Maybe we can source around and get cheaper alternatives from big bookstores such as MPH, Popular and even online options such as Amazon.com and Barnesandnoble.com.
Do you have any suggestion?
