Teaching the Kelabit Language Through Children’s Books

Teaching the Kelabit Language Through Children’s Books

 Picture books play a vital role in teaching children new words and language, eventually shaping their interest in the written and spoken word. A recently published set of children’s books aims to do just that for the Kelabit language, by being the first-of-its-kind bilingual Kelabit-English books. Here to tell us more about this project is the project lead and one of the authors of the books, Sarah Lois Dorai. Sarah also shares more about spotlighting Kelabit culture through her filmmaking work. 

You can order the books from Sceptre Seven Press on Instagram.
