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.

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
