Young children are so independent these days I am amazed at what they could actually do at a young age, more so if they are well informed and armed with knowledge on how to keep themselves and their families safe from harm.

Hands Ako!  Written by Liwliwa Malabed and Illustrated by Mia Lagos, is actually a small booklet that talks about natural calamities like Typhoons, Earthquake and Volcanic eruptions and how to prepare for such occurrences, should the need arise. It also contains a chapter about first aid, what to do in case of fire and who to call in case of emergencies.

I personally went to Fullybooked TriNoma to reserve a copy. It seems A LOT of people were ordering the set. To secure a copy, I needed to deposit 50% of the book`s price. I willingly did so. I mean look at the price! It is a steal!
