Superbook's 'Super' Response in Philippines
MANILA, Philippines -- This month, CBN's Superbook received a "super" response from kids in the Philippines.
Nearly 10,000 children from day care centers in the city of Manila viewed a special episode of "The First Christmas."
The screening was part of a program sponsored by the local government of Quezon City. The children said they enjoyed the show.
An excited four-year-old girl named Renz exclaimed, "It's about Jesus!" And 5-year old Mark Daniel Gordon said, "I want to watch Superbook again!"
Parents were thankful for the lessons learned.
"I hope there will be more Superbook episodes that will help us teach our children about the Word of God. Through Superbook, they can learn about the will of God, what's good and not good for them," said Ginalyn Roy.
Maria Teresa Mariano, head of Quezon City Social Services and Development, praised Superbook for helping to bring moral clarity to the kids.
"The primary goal of the city's Day Care Program is to teach children good values and right conduct. I believe Superbook emphasizes the same values," she said.
After viewing the Superbook episode, the children played trivia games, sang the salvation song, and took the honor pledge. Some even danced with Gizmo.
Others gathered together and shouted, "We love Superbook!"
