Hoarding on Batibot Books

A couple of weekends ago, I went to three National Bookstores, looking for my favorite children’s books. I went to the branches in Shangrila, Glorietta 5 and SM Bicutan. We were invited to several kiddie parties and most of the birthday kids are based in other countries. I bought extras for unexpected birthday parties in school. Good thing I did because last Monday, I found out that two of Aki’s classmates will be celebrating their birthdays this week.

These Batibot books are perfect gifts. They are very affordable. They are thin and light so it won’t be a hassle for the parents of the balikbayan celebrators to bring them.ย  The books are in Filipino but English translations are at the last page. I remember reading these books and watching the stories in Batibot as a kid. It makes me smile seeing my own kid enjoy the very stories I used to love.

Aki’s favorite Batibot book is si Linggit at si Barrakuda. Unfortunately, I could not find any new copies anywhere.

Trivia. When I was setting up this blog, I could not think ofย  a blog name. The Pamilya Ismid was lying on the floor. Inspiration struck and this blog was named Familia Kiki.
