Education and the promotion of the Filipino language are the foremost commitments of Adarna House and we make sure we develop in Filipinos – old and young alike—a love of reading and learning. Our educational products and services for children, parents, teachers, and day care workers, go through an intensive, research-based development process that includes kid-testing and consultations with experts.
Our educational products consist of multilingual board books, storybooks, big books, and chapter books – all original publications that feature Filipino values, culture, history, and experiences – created only by the best Filipino writers and illustrators. We have reference books and manuals as well as materials to support teachers of reading and Filipino. We are proud of our Wikahon, the very first leveled tool for independent use by students to improve reading skills in Filipino.
Our educational services are meant to complement our products. We work hard to offer enjoyable learning opportunities and memorable reading experiences as we strive to improve the quality of life of Filipino children by nurturing their love of learning and of country.
In working towards our corporate vision, Adarna House has entered various partnerships with both public and private organizations who share our enthusiasm for children, our commitment to education, and our passion for reading. Our primary partner and laboratory school is Raya School (raya.org.ph), which offers progressive education for preschool and elementary levels.
Our company is named after the Adarna bird, the mythical creature whose song could cure any affliction. Our logo— an image of this magical bird taking flight, its head turned to see where it came from—is the symbol of our dedication to the legacy of bringing the healing power of reading and learning to the children of our nation. And just like the Adarna bird, we are bound to look to our roots to give us direction as we take wing.
