The Big Bad Wolf Book Sale is Back for Its Second Year in Davao
Big Bad Wolf, the world’s biggest book sale, returns to Davao City for its second consecutive year with a wide variety of book choices.
Book lovers will enjoy 50% to 90% off recommended retail price during the sale. The sale will be open 24 hours a day for 11 days on November 22 to December 2 at the Enderun Tent, Azuela Cove in Davao City. A special VIP Day will also be held on November 21, 2019.
One of the books to look out for are the Magical Books with Augmented Reality (AR) technology which are an exclusive to the BBW Book Sale. These books aim to assist in a child’s learning and development as they are able to interact, read, play and learn using its cutting-edge technology. Among these AR books are classics such as Little Red Riding Hood, along with new titles like ABC Fun with Mickey, and 123 Counting Fun with Mickey.
“The Big Bad Wolf Book Sale travels globally and has explored four cities in the Philippines so far including Manila, Davao, Cebu and Pampanga. It has been amazing to see droves of people, young and old, come together for the love of books. With last year’s turnout, we’re excited to see more Davaoeños at the Big Bad Wolf Book Sale this year and hopefully we are able to continuously instill and create a love for reading. Through the enthusiastic welcome that we have received, it is heartwarming to see that Filipinos are looking forward to attending our Book Sale again in Davao this year,”said Jacqueline Ng, Co-Founder of the Big Bad Wolf Book Sale.
BBW also advocates many charities through Red Readerhood (RRH), its Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR). One such charities is Gawad Kalinga. Gawad Kalinga has been working with BBW in promoting literacy, reaching out to children and adults, and sharing with them the joys and benefits of reading. Last year (2018), 2,111 books were donated to various villages, home and elementary schools in Patag, Misuhumey, Pegalongan, and Dumalogdog. This year, books will be distributed to Sibol Villarica, Sibol Cogon, Sibol San Nicolas, Sibol Mahayag, Sibol Medsa.
