It's Kuya's birthday today! There are a lot of guests, the feast is delicious, and there's even an exhibit of his works. It's a shame he won't be with us. We miss him so much. 

Kaarawan ni Kuya ngayon! Ang daming bisita, ang sasarap ng handa, at mayroon pang eksibit ng mga guhit niya. Sayang at hindi siya makakasama. Miss na miss na namin siya.

Citations from the 2016 National Children's Book Awards:
Masarap maging bahagi ng pamilyang Pilipino. Malaki, maingay pero masaya. Para bang ibinalik ako sa pagkabata ng Salusalo para kay Kuya. Naalala ko noong bata pa ako, kapag kaarawan ko na ay sabik na sabik akong gumising nang maaga para buksan ang aking mga regalo. Ramdam mo rin ang pagmamahal ng isang kapamilya sa kaanak sa kuwento. Sa bawat pahina ng kuwento, nangungusap ang mapipintog na pisngi ng mga tauhan, abala sa isang salusalo, pero masaya pa rin ang lahat. Ipinapaalaala na dapat tayong maging katulad ni Bubuy Boy, na umiiyak ng bahaghari, na kahit na parang may iniwan na malaking butas ang ating kaanak kapag sila ay pumanaw na, kailangan tayong maging malakas at puno ng pag-asa at sariwain ang mga inspirasyong iniwan nila.

Salamat Ergoe Tinio, JC Galag, at Adarna House sa mahusay na kuwento! —Troy Lacsamana, for Best Read for Kids

It taught me that no matter what happens, we should continue our life by keeping and treasuring the good and happy memories of our loved ones, because everything happens for a reason.

We also need to be strong to make our dreams come true by making our loved ones the reason why we remain strong. It’s good for children because of its illustration that can get the children’s interest, and simple words make the story great. —Apriel Beltran, for Kids' Choice finalist
