Duglit the little red blood cell is bored from going around and around Mang Omeng's body. One day, he gets a chance to go on a grand adventure when Mang Omeng donates blood to the Philippine National Red Cross!
ALEXINE: My favorite illustrations out of all Tito Dok's books. Duglit is just the cutest!
Dr. Luis P. Gatmaitan, a.k.a. Tito Dok, has written over 50 children's books and was inducted into the Hall of Fame of the Don Carlos Palanca Memorial Awards for Literature in 2005. He is most popular for his books that make medical situations easy for children to understand, saving parents a lot of trouble! Adriana's had some of his titles since she was two, and I got them specifically for her to understand why I nag her about eating vegetables, brushing her teeth, not eating food off the floor, and everything else that was hard to explain. They've fueled her interest in the human body so at five years old, she can usually explain medical situations better than me. Tito Dok has a book for almost everything and continues to add to his body of work. I highly recommend getting all of his titles!
