25 Best-Loved Pinoy Children’s Book Characters of all Time
September 14, 2008
Ang Ilustrador ng Kabataan (Ang INK) and Philippine Board on Books for Young People mounted a touring exhibit of the 25 of the Best-Loved Pinoy Children’s Books Characters of all time. It is based on a survey among hundreds of Filipino school children. I’m ashamed that I only know 3 out of the 25 pinoy characters. We decided to buy all the children’s books in the ongoing Manila International Book Fair in SMX Convention Center. You can catch the exhibit in the lobby of SMX Convention Center.
