Citation from 2014 National Children's Book Awards:
This well-loved Filipino song has been put to print a number of times over the past years. What makes this particular edition unique is that it is made especially for young children – the format and the method in which it is illustrated appeals to the very audience that the song is taught to.
Bahay Kubo by Adarna House is the kind of book that can grow with a child. Its whimsical illustrations invite young readers to explore every page and, through each line and phrase, helps plant the seeds of our culture in the young minds of today.
