OMF Lit marks 60th year with 36 new books at the MIBF

Business World - - BULLETINS -

CHRIS­TIAN pub­lish­ing house OMF Lit­er­a­ture cel­e­brates its 60th an­niver­sary this year with the launch of 20 new orig­i­nal and 16 new re­pub­lished ti­tles at the 38th Manila In­ter­na­tional Book Fair on Sept. 13 to 17 at the SMX Con­ven­tion Cen­ter, Mall of Asia, Pasay City.

The OMF Lit booth at Aisle I and its Hiyas (chil­dren’s books) booth at the 2nd floor of SMX will show­case in­spi­ra­tional and chil­dren’s fa­vorites from the pub­lisher’s pop­u­lar au­thors. Book lovers can ex­pect an ex­cit­ing line-up of orig­i­nal works by the most-re­spected Chris­tian au­thors in the coun­try.

Among the new chil­dren’s books to be launched are Bee Help­ful from the best­selling Dee the Bee se­ries by Joyce Piap Go; and two books on health — Dirty

’Yan, Judy Ann! and Dyaran! Ang Kam­bal na He­bi­gat, by award-win­ning au­thor Dr. Luis “Tito Dok” Gat­mai­tan. Among the de­vo­tion­als is Thrive

— Jour­ney into Grace, a col­lec­tion of thought-pro­vok­ing read­ings that show women that life’s strug­gles are part of their jour­ney, and that by God’s grace, they can over­come. This book came out of the per­sonal and coun­sel­ing ex­pe­ri­ences of Dar­lene Sala, Bon­nie Sala, and Luisa Reyes-Ampil.

Bee Help­ful, for 4- to- 6-year olds, teaches good man­ners in fun and rhyme through the lov­able Dee the Bee. It’s the sev­enth book in the se­ries fol­low­ing the suc­cess of Bee Po­lite, Bee Safe, Bee Happy, Bee Ac­tive, Bee Healthy, and Bee Green. The se­ries is il­lus­trated by award­win­ning artist Maria Cristina Si­son. Dirty ’Yan, Judy Ann!, for preschool­ers, is the sec­ond book in the new Oki Dok se­ries. From the au­thor of the best­selling “Mga Kuwento ni Tito Dok” books, the Oki Dok se­ries helps preschool chil­dren un­der­stand mat­ters of health and hy­giene. Dyaran! Ang Kam­bal na He­bi­gat fol­lows a line of 20 books on health in the pop­u­lar Mga Kuwento ni Tito Dok se­ries by pe­di­a­tri­cian Dr. Luis P. Gat­mai­tan. The story re­volves around sib­lings Ch­ester and Ch­eska who learned — in a hard way — that be­ing fat doesn’t mean be­ing healthy. Kids and their par­ents and teach­ers will learn about obe­sity in chil­dren and get tips on proper weight and nu­tri­tion as they en­joy the book with its de­light­ful il­lus­tra­tions.

On top of the book fair dis­counts of 20% off on all books at the booth (in­clud­ing im­ported ti­tles) and 30% off on new orig­i­nal and re­pub­lished ti­tles, OMF Lit will give sur­prise an­niver­sary of­fers at the booth.

“Meet and Greet with the Au­thors” will hap­pen ev­ery hour at the OMF Lit booth at the SMX ground floor while sto­ry­telling for chil­dren will be held at the Hiyas booth in the chil­dren’s books hall at the sec­ond floor.
