PaperTigers Zooms On Philippine Chidlren's Literature

PaperTigers is currently featuring Philippine Children's Literature in their website. Reviews and views by Neni Sta. Romana-Cruz and Tarie Subido are great reads! Carla Pacis, Panch Alcaraz and Serge Bumatay are featured as well.

While this news is something all Filipino librarians specializing in children's and young adult library services must read, PaperTigers provides a comprehensive interview with Nancy Harrington. Ms. Harrington and her husband Dan are the proponents of a book donation and library development project in Mindanao and other parts of the southern islands in the country. Book for the Barrios has set up floating libraries in Agusan.

Thanks to PaperTigers! It could not have come at a better time but now.

Yes, thank you, Zarah. I have really enjoyed delving into the rich world of Filipino children's literature - and we will have plenty more on our blog too!

Aline - the Philippine Board On Books for Young People is pleasantly raving about this online feature on the literature we produce for children and young adults. thank you! it has inspired many, at least people i know from the industry to continue writing, illustrating, telling and publishing stories for kids and teens!

Marjorie - thank you! keep up the good work!
