(Takbo, Tatay, Takbo!) Run, Dad Run! is a children’s story book written by Minnie Francisco-Francia that tells a story about a Dad preparing to run his first marathon and how his family showed support for him to achieve this dream.
The book is entitled “Run, Dad Run!” and was inspired by her son Benjamin’s concern and support for his Dad Joseph at the 2014 New York City Marathon.
The book has tells an inspiring story, but written simple enough for children to understand, together with nice illustrations by Leo Kempis Ang, we would recommend this book to parents (specially runner parents) as one of the books to read to your kids.
For those interested orders for “Run, Dad, Run!” can be made online through the book’s FB page https://www.facebook.com/RunDadRun.
It is also now available in National Bookstore, PowerBooks, and Fully Booked outlets at PhP 250 per copy.
While “Maria’s Colorful Banca” helped generate funds for an NGO for survivors of Typhoon Haiyan, this time, a portion of the sales of “Run, Dad,Run!” will be donated to the Uplift Cares Global Movement Foundation, Inc. which works to provide better education to underprivileged students.
