National Children's Book Day

Today is National Children's Book Day.

The Philippine Board of Books for Young People (PBBY) has lined up some activities for today. Please see "Feast of children's books" by Neni Sta. Romana-Cruz (Philippine Daily Inquirer, 18 July 2005) for more information.

Zarah Gagatiga—, librarian and newly-elected PBBY board member—has written about Edgar Samar's Uuwi na ang Nanay kong si Darna [My mother Darna is coming home], which is available online in English and Tagalog through the International Children's Digital Library.

If you would like to see a "showcase of some of the brightest and most exciting Filipino writers for children today," check out Literatura's February 2004 issue, which was devoted to children's literature.

You may also wish to participate in the Aklat, Buklat, Mulat Txt Quiz, a contest sponsored by the National Book Development Board and the Philippine Daily Inquirer. It started last June 28 and ends on July 28. "Daily winners will receive a Gintong Aklat award-winning book. Sunday winners will receive a Gintong Aklat award-winning book and an iPod Shuffle 512 MB" [emphasis mine].
