The month of July is dedicated to the promotion and development of children’s books. Every year on the third week of this month, National Children’s Book Day is celebrated. It is also a day in which we commemorate the anniversary of the publication of Dr. Jose Rizal’s “The Monkey and the Turtle” in Trubner’s Oriental Record in London.

This year, the Philippine Board on Books for Young People (PBBY) is having two events to celebrate the 32nd National Children’s Book Day.  On July 21, the National Book Development Board (NBDB) in partnership with PBBY is holding a literary summit called “Umuulan ng Libro: Philippine Children’s Book Summit.” On July 25, PBBY is holding a librarians’ workshop called Creative Reading Programs for School Libraries Servicing K-12 Learners” and a Children’s Book Fair at the Rizal Library.
