One of the children's books I loved through the years is the one published by Adarna House entitled " Papel de Liha." Written by Corazon Remigio and illustrated by Beth Parrocha-Doctolero, it tells a little girl's story about the many things her mom did to show her care and love.
"Pumunta ako kay Nanay
at humawak sa mga kamay niya
Pakiramdam ko, kahit kailan,
ayaw ko nang bumitiw pa."
Thank you to Adarna House for publishing this book. I bought the giant copy for my storytelling sessions.
To all mothers at heart, thank you for the love and care you have for your loved ones. Let me also greet my own mother, who is celebrating her 91st birthday today,a most beautiful birthday filled with love and kindness.
