Seryeng Bayani: pagbubunyi sa kalayaan

Ngayong araw, ipinagdiriwang natin ang ika-120 taon ng ating kalayaan.

Bilang paggunita, narito ang mapagpalayang seryeng laman ang buhay at katapangan ng ating mga bayaning sina Gregoria de Jesus, Emilio Jacinto, at Apolinario Mabini.

Nilikha ang Seryeng Bayani upang makilala ng mga batang mambabasa ang mga bayani ng katapangan, pakikibaka, at pagpapalaya sa ating bayan.

Layunin ng mga kuwento at mga larawan sa seryeng ito na higit na mapahalagahan ng henerasyon ngayon ang mapagpalayang ambag ng mga bayaning Filipino sa ating kasaysayan.

Back-to-School SALE!

May 3 to 31, up to 70% off on selected=

We know you’d be really sad to hear that we’ll be increasing our prices by June 1, with our storybooks at Php 73.00 and our big books at Php 275.00.  This is the first time we’re increasing our prices after almost 5 years, so we understand your misery, and we are grateful to know that you understand ours.

But we can’t just do that without a big send-off party to our old prices.  So please join us as we say a proud goodbye to our 65-peso storybooks with a month-long sale where they will be sold at only 50 pesos each.   Selected items will also be on sale, for up to 70% off!  Yehey!

To avail of these huge discounts, come and visit us at our showroom (2/F FSS Building, 20 Scout Tuason corner Scout Castor Streets, Barangay Laging Handa, Quezon City) from 8:00 AM to 5:00 PM, Mondays through Saturdays, from May 3 to May 31.

Get the chance to be published!

We weren’t kidding when we said we work really hard to make sure we only publish quality reading materials.  2010 is just about to say goodbye to its first half, but we are already gearing up for our 2011 line-up.

And, well, we need your help.  We are looking for manuscripts to complete our cast of new books.  We welcome stories of any topic, but are currently particularly interested in storybook manuscripts that deal with math, reading, health, environmental awareness, legends, heroes, historical events, special topics (death, peace, adoption, autism, children’s rights), and Filipino values (love of country, pagmamano, po at opo, colonial mentality, and value of freedom, language, culture, and history).

Submit three (3) copies of your original manuscript typewritten on short bond paper accompanied by a one-page literary bio-data.  On the first page of the manuscript, indicate its genre (short story, nonfiction, poetry, etc.) and the literary contest/s it has won, if any.

Address your submissions to Ani Almario, Product Development Manager, ADARNA HOUSE, 2/F FSS Bldg., 20 Scout Tuason cor. Scout Castor Sts., Brgy. Laging Handa, Quezon City 1103. Submissions have to be accompanied by a self-addressed, self-stamped envelope to facilitate return after being screened. Manuscripts may be dropped off at our showroom, or sent through post.

And, very important, please take note that no manuscript submissions may be sent over e-mail.  More information may be found at our FAQs page.
