Book Give Away Day 5: New Hiyas books up for grabs

Posted: September 8, 2012 in Book Give Away

Aside from the well-known and well-loved books from your favorite authors, OMF Lit has a very special place for children in our bookshelves and in our hearts

HIYAS is OMF Literature’s imprint for children’s books. The word “hiyas” means “gem” in Filipino, an appropriate name for a line of books that contain treasures for children. In HIYAS books, readers will discover a wealth of enjoyable stories, memorable characters, imaginative art, and indispensable biblical values.

HIYAS stories are written especially for kids: some endearing, some action-packed, some informative. Creative illustrations combine with fascinating stories to trigger a kid’s imagination.

But at the heart of every HIYAS book is a Christian value essential to a child’s character development. Illustrated in stories, these essential lessons are easier to understand and apply.

This Manila International Book Fair, we are very excited to launch six great new titles for the kids who love to read and for the adults who want to share the joy of reading to children

Oh Mateo 14: A Flood of Kindness

The last book in the Oh! Mateo series by Palanca award-winning author Grace D. Chong,brings back all the characters from all 13 previous books, characters that kids have grown to love.

The town of Umingan was devastated by the flood but instead of bringing the people of Umingan down, the tragedy inspired acts of kindness, generosity and love from the townspeople.

Quiet Time With Mateo

From Palanca award-winning author Grace D. Chong, this book contains 52 weekly devotions which focuses on Mateo’s life and the people around him. Each story teaches Christian values which every child must know and learn by heart. Includes memory verses, activities, puzzles and games for kids.

Mga Kuwento Ni Tito Dok 17: Eeewww Kadiri Ang Mga Germs

Learn all about the different types of microbes that cause sickness in our bodies. Teach young kids health to protect their bodies and health in a fun but educational way

Bee Polite

In the follow-up to the successful Bee Safe, author Joyce Piap Go brings to life once again Dee the Bee as he teaches kids on how to be polite at home, in school and at play.

Boom Bang Clang

Boom! Bang! Clang! by Maloi Malibiran-Salumbides tells the story of two families, the Tambol and Pompyang family, who constantly fight and outdo each other. This is a perfect story that parents can use to teach their kids the value of getting along with others despite differences.

Porcupirate Plans The Day

In the newest book by National Children’s Book Awardee author and illustrator Robert Magnuson, Little Porcupirate plans his days with exciting adventures. But when things don’t go his way, he’s about to learn that adventure can be found where he least expects it.
