Happy Family Literacy Day!

Today is Family Literacy Day!

I have teamed up with my former colleague to celebrate today's event by reading a kid's story called, Hungry Ryzaurus. The author, Dr. Diadem Gonzales-Esmero and the illustrator, Mr. Andrei B. Lanuza were my colleagues at the Philippine Rice Research Institute - Central Experiment Station in the Science City of Munoz, Nueva Ecija, Philippines.

Dr. Gonzales-Esmero is now the Head of the Community Relations Office, and Mr. Lanuza is a Senior Science Reseach Specialist at PhilRice, respectively.

This online reading for Family Literacy Day 2021 has been made possible by another great friend, (and soon to be Ph.D.) Ms. Charisma Love B. Gado-Gonzales, who is a seasoned writer and researcher, working also at PhilRice as Senior Science Research Specialist.

If you want a copy of the book, you can visit PhilRice website at

Again, Happy Family Literacy Day! Let make all make reading a habit!
