中港台一向注重将儿童文学的作品转译到教材之中，新加坡在这方面做得略显不足。华文在新加坡属第二语文，并不能相提并论。尤其是21世纪面临多媒体普及化的挑战，小学华文教学必须更加生动有趣。这使儿童文学的价值逐渐受到了教育者的关注，为儿童文学制造了契机。迄今为止，对于新华儿童文学与新加坡小学教育的研究甚少，笔者希望通过此文为新华儿童文学与小学华文教育有兴趣的人士提供便利与新的视角。本文将以新加坡华文儿童文学与小学华文教学作为案例研究，除了整理两者在新加坡建国后的发展概况，也提出并且分析新华儿童文学若要通过名为“儿童教育”的桥梁到达小学教育的领域，就必须经历与小学华文教育的磨合。新华儿童文学需与小学华文教育的目标和方法减少磨擦才能以融合，让沉寂已久的新华文学在失势的语境下出现生机。 Mainland China, Hong Kong and Taiwan have valued the importance of including children’s literature in their teaching materials. In Singapore, such cases are rare. As a state whereby Chinese Language is a second language, comparing Singapore with places where Chinese is the first language is not valid. Especially in the 21st Century, challenges are faced due to wide use of multimedia, Chinese lessons must be more exciting and interesting than before. The value of children’s literature attracted the attention of many educators, hence creating an opportunity of revival for Singapore’s Chinese children literature. Currently, there are very few researches regarding Singapore’s Chinese children literature and her primary Chinese education. This study aims to facilitate understanding and provide new perspective through the case study of Singapore’s Chinese children literature and primary Chinese education. Besides sorting the development stages of these two areas after the founding of Singapore, this study suggest that Singapore’s Chinese children literature has to go through contention with primary Chinese education. Only by reducing its difference with the aims and methodology of primary Chinese education, Singapore’s Chinese children literature will be able see revival in the context of Singapore.
