The 33rd National Children's Book Day (NCBD)

The PBBY spearheaded the celebration of the National Children's Book Day last Tuesday, July 19, 2016 at the CCP. Mr. Genaro Gojo Cruz and Mr. Mark Lawrence Andres were both present to receive their awards. The winners of the 4th National Children's Book Awards were also revealed. Teaming up with the National Book Development Board, once again, the special day for Children's Literature was made more meaningful with the presence of children, kid judges, who announced the winner of the Kids' Choice Award.

The PBBY with CCP and NBDB and its respective leaders, Mr. Chris Millado and Ms. Neni Sta. Roman Cruz.

I posted the NCBA Best Reads of 2016 in the blog as well as the Top 9 Finalists in the Kids' Choice Award and this year's winner.

It was a happy day.

Despite everything that's going on in the country and the world, the celebration of the 33rd NCBD was steeped in hope, joy and the promise of a thriving industry. Tomorrow, July 23, 2016, the NCBD Book Fair commences at Xavier School San Juan. Bring a book bag for your purchases. Attend one or two talks in the PBBY Children's Literature Talks. Meet a friend. Greet your favorite authors, illustrators and industry leaders. Have your fill of books! Have fun!

Red was the color of the day and I was clueless as to the colors of the dinning sheets.
Fran Ong is fabulous! Tarie Sabido is gorgeous! And me, I'm the funny girl.
