Health books for kids from pediatrician-author Luis Gatmaitan

Published by OMF Books, “Dyaran! Ang Kambal na Hebigat! (Tada! The Heavyweight Twins!),” by pediatrician-writer Luis “Tito Dok” Gatmaitan introduces the topic of weight management and good eating habits to children.

The 21st title in the bestselling “Mga Kuwento ni Tito Dok (Stories of Uncle Doc)” series, “Ang Kambal na Hebigat” not only addresses obesity in children but also gives tips on how parents can help their kids have proper weight and maintain a healthy lifestyle. The book features the fun illustrations of Mike Amante.

“Dirty ’Yan, Judy Ann! (That’s Dirty, Judy Ann!),” is the second title in “Oki Dok!”, the new health series by Dr. Gatmaitan especially written for younger kids.

With adorable illustrations by Cy Vendivil, “Oki Dok!” features fun and simple stories that address the health and hygiene concerns of preschoolers. In the book, Tito Dok explains the value of cleanliness through the endless—but loving—reminders of a mother obsessed with being clean.

“Dyaran! Ang Kambal na Hebigat!” sell for P120 each and are available at National Book Store, OMF Lit Bookshop, Passages, and other leading bookstores nationwide. The book can also be ordered online through
