Amanda the Panda
- About the Authors
It’s a bright sunny day in Pandoro, but Amanda the Panda is busy studying and reading at home. Her eyes start to feel tired, so her mummy encourages her to go outside and play. Follow Amanda as she learns why spending time outdoors is good for keeping her eyes healthy.
This colourful picture book tells a story of how time spent outdoors is crucial to maintain good eyesight, alongside numerous other health and cognitive benefits. Through the rhyming words and illustrations, we hope to educate children and parents about the dangers of myopia and encourage healthy practices to maintaining good eyesight.
This book is a collaboration with Singapore National Eye Centre.
Associate Professors Audrey Chia and Marcus Ang are the clinical directors of the new Myopia Centre and authors of Amanda the Panda.
The two eye doctors hope that parents may help children learn about good eye care in a fun and engaging way through their newly published illustrated children’s book, which is suitable for those aged three to eight.
