Book-reading held for local grade school

A reading of the children’s book Gabby Ghas was held for 138 fourth- and fifth-grade students of the Tagumpay and San Antonio elementary schools at Bay, Laguna, on 26 November 2013.

Gabby Ghas is about a tiny grain of palay who wanted to find his place in the world. It was read by Oscar “Kuya Pong” Garcia, who made it lively and interactive.

The reading was organized by IRRI in partnership with the IRRI spouses group and Asia Rice Foundation, which published the book, to create awareness among children of the important processes involved in the production of rice.

IRRI donated 10 copies of Gabby Ghas to the libraries of both schools. The IRRI spouses group sponsored snacks for the children during the activity.
