My cousins Bobby and Lina Bear (yes, their last name is "Bear") are visiting and the first thing Bobby told me when he saw me was, "Ate, story time." Perfect! Today is World Read Aloud Day. I read aloud Prince Bear & Pauper Bear, written by Emily Lim and illustrated by Neal Sharp (Mustard Seed Books, 2007). As you can imagine, my cousins were tickled by my choice of book.
I am an English teacher and professional fangirl. My fandoms are: children's literature, young adult literature, and K-pop.
In 2009, I was a judge for the Children’s and Young Adult Bloggers’ Literary Awards (CYBILS), and in 2010, I was a judge for the (Philippine) National Children’s Book Awards.
I represent book reviewers on the Philippine Board on Books for Young People.
