“Literature to inspire” is the call that challenges OMF Literature to publish books that impact lives. With this year’s award-winning titles, OMF Literature hopes to continue publishing excellent sources of inspiration, instruction and insight.

Out of 117 entries, The Great Duck and Crocodile Race, written and illustrated by Robert Magnuson, was one of the 6 titles given the distinction of being a Best Read of 2012 by the National Book Development Board (NBDB) and Philippine Board on Books for Young People (PBBY) at the 2nd National Children’s Book Awards last July.

Noted children’s literature advocate and NCBA judge, Robert Alejandro, was cited as saying “I loved the book. Apparently I wasn’t the only judge who loved the book. Everyone did. It was a clear unanimous decision…The story is delightful and the illustrations are wonderful. It is everything that will make a child want to fall in love with reading.”

Two books from OMF Literature also won in the 2012 Gintong Aklat Awards Inspirational category, given out by the Book Development Association of the Philippines (BDAP) at last month’s Manila International Book Fair.

The Honeymoon Never Ends by Nelson T. Dy offers couples Biblical principles and practical tips in order to cultivate a deeper relationship with each other. Aside from the author’s insights on reigniting the intimacy and passion of a lifelong honeymoon, the book also features inspiring stories of seasoned couples such as Joey and Marie Bonifacio (Victory Christian Fellowship), Nomer and Sylvia Bernardino, and Bo Sanchez (Kerygma).

Grace Found Me: 365 Thoughts For Busy Women was written by award-winning author Grace D. Chong. It’s a book full of inspiring thoughts for women who are forever drowning in tasks and responsibilities. The book reminds readers that God is the only one who can give rest to the weary mind, heart and soul. Grace Chong also recently won a Don Carlos Palanca Memorial Award for Literature in the Short Story for Children category for her story “White Shoes.”

These three award-winning titles are available at all OMF Lit Bookshops, PCBS and National Bookstores nationwide.
