National Children's Book Day + Giveaway

Win these books!

We were supposed to be at the Cultural Center of the Philippines to day for the celebration of the National Children's Book Day. However, I have been sick these past few days - lost my voice in the process - and had to decide to forego our field trip. 

It's been raining badly in Metro Manila since last night and just before lunch time, the organizers of the event in CCP has announced cancellation because the government has suspended office work. On the good side, we still have a chance to join the celebration with other kids.

I have been advocate of read-alouds and gifting children with books all these years. Interestingly, my Facebook page has reached its 2,000 likes today! Wow!

So, as a thank you to everyone who has been following this blog and my Facebook page, and to celebrate National Children's Book Day today, I am opening this flash giveaway. Just follow the simple mechanics below.

1. Giveaway will run from July 17 to July 18 (10PM) only.
2. Comment on this blog post: What would you like to know more about homeschooling?

  1. I would like to know if homeschooling will be effective for a child with special needs as well as to those who are not.The pros and cons..thank you..

  2. I would like to know more about homeschooling. The process. How does it work? Kumbaga kasi may oras bang sineset dyan? Ilang oras? May mga gradesheets din ba na sinusunod? Kaso i have a neighbor whom are homeschooled hanggang mag high school. And now theyre in College na. How does it work? And im surprised actually. Napakatatalino nila and advance. Nagpunta ko sa kanila noon kasi childhood friends ko sila e, andami din nilang artworks and crafts. May mga halaman sa loob ng jar. Andami din nilang activities na kakaiba.

  3. Is homeschooling for working moms or mas ok sa housewife kasi mas hawak ang time? how do you manage time? where do you get lesson plans?

  4. Is homeschooling like going to a tutorial school except that your not living your house?

    Thank you po❤❤❤

  10. 1. In homeschooling, isn't one on one of the teacher and the student? I mean, one on one po ba itong pagtuturo ng guro at estudyante sa bahay?

    2. If kapag sinabing homeschooling, only paperworks and projects lang po ginagawa sa bahay and self study? Lalo na po kpg public school ang student,

    Kasi in 4months naranasan ko po na mag homeschool. Yun po ang tawag ng mga guro ko, public school po ako nag aaral. Maaga po ako nabuntis pro nakiusap po ako sa mga guro ko if pwd ako na maghomeschool pra matapos ko ang high school kc ilang buwan na lng nmn po. Then pumayag cla pro confuse po ako nun kung ppntahan ba nila ako isa isa na mga teacher ko pra ituro bawat subjects ko. Pro ang sabi lang po nila skin nun ay ppnta ako sa kanila once a week pra kumuha ng homework, paperworks and projects. Tapos review all by my self, kumbaga self learning pra sa quiz and exam.

  11. I would like to know more how I can teach my son Science, Math, and English using practical and inexpensive things. Through your homeschooling V and Z videos, I get several tips. Thanks for the generosity to share.

  12. What are the Do's and Don'ts in Homeschooling? ok lng ba tlga yan? I mean d pa parang malulungkot ang bata nyan kasi wala sya masyadong friends?

  13. I would like to know how much will it cost homeschooling, prons and cons and benefits of it on a child.

  14. Of course ive been hearing a lot bout homeschooling at ang dami ng naghomeschool..i wanna know the process kasi clueless talaga ako. I have a turning 4 yrs old daughter and i am teaching her at home.instead of sending her to school as she likes playing pa and for me too early for her. I just taught her anything from the basic like alphabet and numbers. I let her write, we sing togther to memorize . Mganda daw developmwnt and approach ng homeschooling kaya naintriga ako dito.

  15. I want to know more about homeschooling. How it will help my child, will it cost me much? Or less? Will it really be good if its home school or eventually bk magka fear sila pag nasa real world na sila ng schooling? Ako ba ang magtuturo or somebody will visit and teach or online? How much time will it consume per day? How about grading system. Mas ok po ba ang schooling for elementary students? I want to know more and the process itself.

  16. Does it follow a curriculum too?
    Do we need to ask permission or accreditation to the authority for homeschooling?

  17. What are the possible advantages and disadvantages of homeschooling, how it will affect child's social skills and to socialise with others. How does it costs and what about the lessons?

  18. I want to know if ok or not ang homeschooling ano ang possible result or outcome sa bata unlike sa regular school. Ano ang magiging personality nya in the future since homeschooling ay himdi gaya sa regular school na meron syang mga classmates.

  19. I am a first time mom and would like to know more about homeschooling like how it will benefit my child and for me as a mom as well and how deep must we go homeschooling?

  20. May pa give away ka pala mommy, di ako umabot. The best ka mommy,sharing is caring.God bless you and your family.
