Ang Maliit na Kalabaw

The 6th National Children’s Book Awards recipients are a ‘welcome ray of light’ in a most difficult season
“Kalabaw” is portrayed as a lovable creature, almost irresistible in the opening pages wearing a summer hat with the bigger carabaos sporting a lei and flowers on the head. None of the wallowing in the mud stereotype.
The story focuses on the small carabao who exhibits such good manners. It knows exactly what to say when crossing the path of chicks, awaits his turn for his bath, shares the grass on the field, and even apologizes when he crashes into a basket of eggs. What a painless and entertaining way to teach basic courtesy.
It must be said that the book’s special charm lies in the playful and whimsical paper cutout art that is a Flores’ trademark."
