Kids in Bukidnon Share Meaningful Takeaways from Superbook’s “The Good Samaritan” Episode

“Let us love our neighbors and help them the best way we can!”

This was the lesson learned by the children in Can-ayan Integrated School in Malaybalay, Bukidnon, when they watched the Superbook episode, “The Good Samaritan” as part of the Gizmo on the GO! event last January.

All the kids got so hooked on watching the episode and found themselves relating to the characters while taking home powerful lessons from the story!

When asked about her favorite scene in “The Good Samaritan” episode, grade 5 student Kyline Silmaro shared, “I like the part when the Samaritan helped the wounded man on the road.”

After watching the episode, Kyline learned that we should be kind and loving to others because this is what God desires for all His children.

“The priest in the parable did not help the wounded man. But the Samaritan even took him to an inn and paid for his stay!”

Kyline realized that the Samaritan’s kindness mirrored what Jesus did for us. “He helped us by dying on the Cross and was raised back to life so our sins will be forgiven.”

Grade 6 student Dominick Binahon felt the pain of the wounded man on the road as a familiar situation came across his mind.

“I felt a bit sad because I remembered the time when no one helped me when I was hungry and had no money to buy food,” Dominick recounted. “Good thing my best friend was there to help me get by the day.”

Through Superbook’s “The Good Samaritan” episode, Dominick learned to show love, kindness, and respect to every person he will meet.

Anjalina Esoy was also able to relate to the story of the “The Good Samaritan.”

“I helped my younger sibling who was being bullied. We confronted the bully and asked him to apologize to my younger sibling. I also encouraged my sibling to forgive the child who bullied him,” Anjalina shared.

She continued, “I learned from Superbook’s ‘The Good Samaritan’ that we should love, respect, and help each other.”

Many children are learning good values and getting closer to God through Superbook!

Caviteña Mom Recommends Superbook to Parents with Techy Children

From street games such as piko, tumbang preso, and luksong tinik, children are now spending more time on computer games, mobile apps, and television.

Mina Paragoyo is a mom who witnessed that change in hobbies and entertainment in today’s new generation.

Now that she has kids, she said that it has really been challenging to limit the use of technology in children. Some schools require the use of laptops. Communication with a distant loved one requires an Internet connection. Even shows and movies are watched online.

Joaquin, Mina’s 6-year-old first-born, is a part of this generation and he genuinely enjoys playing games on his gadgets for long hours. Despite that, Mina always finds time to remind Joaquin to watch Superbook.

“Kids nowadays have different interests. But I make sure that I include Superbook into my son’s screen time because I see that he enjoys and learns from it, too.” Mina says.

The Caviteño mom added, “Every time Joaquin watches Superbook, I notice that his attitude improved. He sometimes asks why the bad guys do bad things, and what’s good about Superbook is that they are really clear in explaining.”

“Since the kids cannot read at an early age, Superbook is a big help. Stories in an animated format help kids visualize the Bible at a level that they will understand,” she said.

After finding out that Gizmo will be in their school event in Molino 4, Bacoor Cavite, Mina said that Joaquin felt really excited that he even helped in preparing before they leave to see Gizmo.

When asked about his favorite Superbook episode, Joaquin said that he liked Moses’ story the most. “Moses did the right thing,” he said.

Despite his shy attitude, extreme joy flooded Joaquin’s eyes when he was in line to take a photo with Gizmo. Even after his picture was taken, his attention was fixed on our robot friend, showing that he knew Gizmo from the Superbook episodes he watched.

Mina started showing the Superbook episodes to Joaquin as early as he was 4 years old. She said parents should encourage their children to watch Superbook and left this message for all the parents who have kids that are spending too much time on gadgets and the Internet:

“The media has all kinds of violent and unpleasant videos that might expose your child to the wrong outlook in life. Superbook breaks that cycle and helps remind the kids about good values and the Word of God. Because of activities like Gizmo on the GO!, I was reminded that I should let my kids watch Superbook more often.”

Superbook Continues to Teach Biblical Values through Gizmo on the Go!

The fun and learning continue in “Gizmo on the Go!” as everyone’s beloved robot friend, Gizmo, and the Superbook Crew visited the kids from Greenland, Cainta in Rizal last July 15!

To kick off the Gizmo on the Go adventure, the kids watched a Superbook episode with their parents and friends. On the “Jonah” episode, they learned the importance of obeying God even if their situation seems challenging or difficult.

One of the kids who shared her experience is 13-year-old Thea Membrano. Just like every Batang Superbook that day, Thea expressed her gratitude to Superbook for visiting them.

Superbook Gizmo on the Go Cainta

Thea is one of the kids who grew up watching Superbook.

“Through Superbook, I learned to obey and respect my elders,” she said. She also shared why her all-time favorite episode is “Noah and the Ark.”

“In that episode, I learned what happened during Noah’s time. I also learned more about God’s beautiful creation!” Thea exclaimed.

Not only does it help kids learn more about God’s Word through Superbook episodes, but Gizmo on the Go also brings fun activities and games for them to enjoy!

The kids performed their spectacular dancing skills on “Gizmo’s Talent Show” and proved their incredible knowledge on Math and Science on “Gizmo’s Lab!” Everyone who participated brought home amazing prizes!

Superbook Gizmo on the Go Cainta

To top off the remarkable day, Gizmo came to join the fun! He sang and danced The Salvation Poem with all the kids and led them to a prayer—where they accepted Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior.

It was a very heartwarming moment to see kids draw closer to Jesus.

Like Thea, you can also meet Gizmo and the Super Crew!

“Gizmo on the Go!” visits different places across the country!

Superbook and Gizmo on the Go Touch the Lives of Kids in Parañaque

A superb experience for all the Batang Superbook!

Kids from Word for the World – International Christian Academy in Sucat, Parañaque, had a spectacular day with Gizmo and the Super Crew.

The fun started as the kids showcased their dancing skills during Gizmo’s Talent Show and enjoyed games testing their knowledge on Mathematics and more on Gizmo Quizmo!

Everyone who participated brought home amazing Superbook items. The kids and parents also watched the Superbook episode Joseph and Pharaoh’s Dream.

They were super thrilled to sing and dance along The Salvation Poem with Gizmo. Everyone prayed and accepted Jesus as their Lord and Savior.

It was a meaningful day filled with hope, fun, and learning!

Angeline, 8 years old, is one of the Superbook fans who was grateful to be part of the event. She shared that by watching Superbook on television and on YouTube, she is learning more about Jesus. The show also introduced other Bible characters and biblical values to her home.

“I learned how to help others by watching Superbook,” Angeline said.

Nelgie, Angeline’s mother, is very grateful about how the show touches the lives of her children.

Superbook helped my kids grow in Jesus. They are excited to go to church every Sunday!” Nelgie said. With tears of joy, she shared her prayer for her children to keep growing closer to Jesus and be successful in life.

Julia Jarin, one of the Sunday School teachers, agreed and expressed that the show is an effective way of sharing the Good News to her students.

“More than a children’s animated show, Superbook is a tool for sharing the gospel to children and teaching them biblical values.”

As a Sunday School teacher for 4 years, Julia witnessed Superbook’s impact on kids and how they opened their hearts to learning about God.

“We are thankful that there is a television program that explains to children who Jesus is—that He is their Superhero and Friend!” Julia ended.

With Superbook team and Gizmo on the Go visiting different parts of the country, more and more children experience the saving love of Jesus Christ.

“Gizmo on the Go” Caravan Brings Jesus Closer to Mangyan Kids

Gizmo and the Super Crew share Jesus with children on “Gizmo on the Go!”

Students in Lamac Elementary School and Cabuyao Elementary School in Mansalay, Oriental Mindoro had the chance to meet Gizmo during the Superbook events last March 23 and 24. More than 200 kids and some of their parents from the Hanunuo Mangyan tribe attended the events.

The program kicked off with a dance contest and “Gizmo Quizmo,” which tested the kids’ knowledge on Math and Science.

They also learned about the story of the young shepherd boy, David, by watching the Superbook episode, “A Giant Adventure.” They discovered that God will give them strength just as He did to David when he fought Goliath.

Eleven-year-old Rizon Leido, who claimed that “A Giant Adventure” is his favorite Superbook episode, said, “David defeated Goliath because God was his defender!”

David’s story inspired not only the kids but the parents as well. Maria Ellesa Leido, a mother who attended the event, recalled how she felt victorious when David defeated Goliath.

“Even though David was small, God’s power was in him. He believed that God gave him the power to defeat his enemy,” she said.

Ellesa also pointed out the importance of knowing God, “We were separated from God because of sin. But because of His love for us, He sent Jesus Christ to save us.”

After watching Superbook, the attendees prayed and accepted Jesus as their Lord and Savior.

Following the successful and heartwarming sharing of the Gospel to the Mangyan people, Gizmo brought more joy by dancing to “The Salvation Poem” with them. The program concluded with the kids reciting the “Batang Superbook Promise.”

The children went home with loot bags containing Superbook and Oyayi coloring books, school supplies, and snacks. But most importantly, they had the chance to know and accept Jesus in their lives!

Superbook really helps a lot in sharing God so that people can have salvation. It helps them not to lose hope,” Ellesa shared.

3 Tips to Support Kids’ Mental Health in the New Normal

3 Tips to Support Kids’ Mental Health in the New Normal

You know better than anyone how your child’s life has been impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic.

Although many kids are remarkably resilient, some are still struggling to adjust with the changes.

This is natural. The routine that once made them a sense of control and freedom have been erased. Classrooms have become computer screens, playgrounds were closed, and their friendships were put on pause.

It’s understandable that they might feel irritable, frustrated, or even sad sometimes.

Wondering how you can support your child’s mental health? Here are 3 tips:

3 Tips to Support Kids’ Mental Health in the New Normal

1. Talk to your child

Children feel big emotions that they don’t always have the words for.

So it’s best to ask and help them identify how they feel about the current situation. Validate their emotions. Explain why they can’t go out. Ask if they have concerns or questions then answer in a truthful, calm way.

Reassure them that you are always there whenever they need someone to talk to.

3 Tips to Support Kids’ Mental Health in the New Normal

2. Encourage healthy habits

Kids can feel and do better during this challenging time if they get enough sleep, eat healthy meals, and exercise regularly.

That’s why it’s important to re-establish your family’s daily routine—including your child’s online classes, household chores, and relaxation.

Encourage activities that boost their mood, such as watching child-friendly shows like Superbook.

3 Tips to Support Kids’ Mental Health in the New Normal

3. Help them develop a sound mind

Everyone—including your child—is prone to stress, cabin fever, and moments of fear.

Help them develop a sound mind and find comfort in God by teaching them how to pray.

3 Tips to Support Kids’ Mental Health in the New Normal

Superbook opened its Kids Prayer Line to help kids pray!

Children may call (02) 8-737-0-700 or send their prayer requests through Batang Superbook’s Facebook page.
