New Distribution Partner: Haven Books

Select Books is pleased to announce that we have been appointed by Haven Books to be their exclusive distributor in Singapore for their kidsGo! series of travel guidebooks.

Haven Books is a dynamic English-language press based in Hong Kong. Their books focus primarily on Asian and international themes, and are enjoyed worldwide by readers of all ages. They publish strong, fresh titles on a wide variety of topics - including exciting fiction, cookbooks, photography and travel books, children's illustrated books, young adult novels, and reference books. They are a founding member of the Independent Publishers of Hong Kong, and actively promotes Asia-based writers and literary organizations.

With regular guidebooks, you have to wade through 200 pages to figure out what to. But honestly, who has the time? The kidsGo! guidebooks give readers the top selections for the type of day you're planning to have:

Top Sights And Must-Do’s
Be A Culture Vulture
Talking With The Animals
Go Walk About!
Museum Mania
Food, Glorious Food
It’s Raining, It’s Pouring
Get Wild And Wet
Shop Till You Drop

Also listed are Fast Facts, basic foreign phrases, do’s and don’ts, things to spot, plus strange and wonderful nuggets of History And Culture. Useful area maps put the main landmarks in context, so that the family can plan its day at a glance.
 
There is also an accompanying website: kidsgotravelguides.com

The series has been reviewed in Four Seasons Magazine in May 11: "...filled with suggestions that the whole family can finally agree on."

Books already released in the series include kidsGo! Phuket and kidsGo! Hong Kong.
