Lampara Books brings to children, parents and teachers the brightest stories from the current harvest of children’s literature in the Philippines, likewise from the literature of different countries from all over the world. Each story is carefully written or retold by budding and award-winning Filipino writers and illustrated by illustrators of children’s books. Featured here are unique and exciting characters, places, themes and experiences that will kindle the imagination, emotion and mind of the young readers. Each book is written in two languages—Filipino and English—to reach a greater number of readers here in the country and in other parts of the world.
More importantly, Lampara Books hopes that the lessons and values learned in these stories will serve as light that will guide young readers to grow up with a profound love for books and reading, a deep respect for themselves, for others, and for the environment, and a keen awareness of their roles as good and responsible members of society.
