Renato Barja's Children's Stories
Written by Gigo Alampay and Daniel Palma Tayona
Artworks by Renato Barja, Jr.
This book is a collection of true stories from real children, whom the artist had encountered over the course of two decades. Each child had their own unique struggles, challenges, and talents; some unnerving and with the sensitive subject matter. However, it is all too real; parental guidance and supervision are advised.
“And it is our hope that this book can be used in some measure to initiate meaningful conversations and deeper reflections. ” -Gigo Alampay, from the Preface of Children’s Stories
