    Where can I buy these books? NBS usually has the US books. I'm planning to build a library of children's books for my nieces. Hope you can help.

    I got a copy of "Araw sa Palengke" for my 2-year old son. It's actually for kids over 2y/o but my son related so well with the story since he sees me preparing for "market day" on weekends. I just revise some parts so he would understand the story easily and to avoid misinterpretations.

    This book is a good read. :-)
