    The NCBD is an annual event organized by the Philippine Board on Books for Young People (PBBY) and recognizes the best works of children’s book writers, illustrations, and publishers. Most importantly, NCBD celebrates the importance of nurturing the curiosity and imagination of young readers.

    This year’s NCBD will award winners of various PBBY contests, including the 2018 PBBY Wordless Book Prize and the 2018 National Children’s Book Awards. There will also be a My CCP Tour activity followed by sessions on storytelling, arts and crafts, and music and movement. The event is free and open to the public.
