There was once a box, an ordinary cardboard box. But inside the box was something special. Inside the box was a little girl.
Minsan, mayroong isang kahon, isang ordinaryong kahong gawa sa karton. Pero may espesyal na nilalaman ang kahon. Sa loob ng kahon, ay may munting batang babae.

Sobra akong na-impress, una kong nakita ang librong The Little Girl in a Box. Ang ganda ng printing, ang papel, ang illustrations. Pati ang storya, napakaganda.
Sa sobrang ganda, naisipan ko, baka naman masyadong sophisticated para sa mga bata.
Pero iyon nga ang ikinigaganda ng The Little Girl in a Box at iyon ang rason kung bakit unanimous ang decision na isali ang The Little Girl in a Box sa best children’s book list. – dapat nga tayo gumawa pa ng mga magagandang libro na sophisticated para sa mga bata.
Congratulations sa bumuo ng napakandang librong The Little Girl in a Box!

One of the reasons why I had chosen this book was because of its really good storyline. I loved how the story flows. It was precisely stated and it was very simple yet it was still good. I really, really enjoyed it.
