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!
