The launching of NCBD activities at the Marikina Convention Center went well this morning. As usual, writers. illustrators, storytellers, teachers, librarians, publishers and people from the children's book industry in the country came and gave their support to PBBY. Pictures of the event will follow.
While a host of activities will be conducted in the city of Marikina for one whole week (July 21-25, 2009), there are celebrations of NCBD in different schools, libraries and communities in the metro. This is good. The home, however, is another place where NCBD can also be celebrated. Every third Tuesday of July, read a book to your child. If you are not a parent, then find one who you can read to.
