What is Children’s Book Week?
Children’s Book Week is the annual celebration of books for young people and the joy of reading.
Established in 1919, Children’s Book Week is the longest-running national literacy initiative in the country. Every year, commemorative events are held nationwide at schools, libraries, bookstores, homes — wherever young readers and books connect!
Read more about it here.
I’m all for celebrating books and the joy of reading, so I’m giving away a $5 Kindle book as part of this giveaway hop. That is, the winner will receive a Kindle book (valued at $5) of their choice. Enter via the Rafflecopter below!
Back in 2012, Team Philippines sent a Mixed (men and women) team and an Open (all men) team to compete in the World Ultimate and Guts Championships (WUGC) held in Sakai, Japan. The Mixed team finished 7th overall, a big jump from being #14 at the start of the tournament, while the Open team bagged the Spirit Award. Not bad, eh?
Last year, Team Philippines sent a Mixed team, Women’s team and Open team to the Asia Oceanic Ultimate Championships in Hong Kong. All three teams were in the top 3 of their divisions with the Mixed team bagging the gold and the Women’s and Open teams bagging bronze. Cool, right?
This year, WUGC will be held in London and there will be three Philippine teams competing – a Mixed team, a Women’s team and a Men’s Masters team (33 years old and over). How awesome is that?
