Yesterday, Noa and I had another adventure in Makati City. We visited Powerbooks in Greenbelt 4 for the Mommy Matters Blogger’s Party organized by Anvil Publishing Inc.
Mommy Matters features several books that will guide Filipino parents in their wonderful journey called parenting. These books are written by Filipino moms so we can very much relate to the topics that they wrote about. These little treasures will surely find a way into our hearts as moms and dads since the authors themselves were inspired by their own families and journey as they write the book.

I Will Always Love You More by Peachy Concepcion
I Will Always Love You More asks, “What does a mother feel when she sees her children growing up right before her eyes?” Peachy G. Concepcion articulates the experience of a mother watching her children go from little girls playing in the sun to young women going to prom, holding on to the thought of her little babies and yet excited at the potential of her children.
Fun with Numbers by Paz Jensen and Aida Reyes
Real Fun With Numbers provides the connections between process and content. Children are presented with meaningful problems to solve and asked to communicate and defend their thinking to their teacher and classmates. Since play is very much a part of the child’s life at this level, it is used to introduce content concepts throughout the development of their mathematical knowledge.
Given the proper blend of activities and guided interactive learning, the beginning learner will have an excellent foundation in mathematics. The learning of mathematics will be fun, active, and sequentially sound. The pages in this book identify not only the NCTM content standards but also how the lessons align with the Department of Education’s K-12 Mathematics curriculum.
The books are perfect gifts for young parents who need all the advice they can get about challenges and wonders of raising children. They can be found in the parenting sections of all branches of National Book Store and Powerbooks nationwide.
