About the book:
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.
Foreword by Professor Wong Tien Yin
Short-sightedness, or myopia, is a major problem in Singapore and everywhere. In fact, Singapore is known as the ‘myopia capital’ of the world due to how common it is here. Although myopia begins in childhood, potential complications which may affect vision appear later in life. Scientific evidence has shown us a simple way to slow down myopia: spend more than two hours outdoors every day. We hope that parents will read this picture book to their young children and remember our sunny little tip!
