Kapuso viewers who are young and young at heart are in for more special Pinoy literary treats on the second season of GMA Pinoy TV’s original content “Pinoy A+: Filipino Stories for Kids” beginning July 18 both in the Philippines via GTV and abroad on GMA Pinoy TV.
Taking off from the successful first season of Pinoy A+, viewers can once again take part in an adventure through the stories narrated by their favorite Kapuso stars airing every Sunday.
The featured storytellers for this season are Kapuso Primetime King Dingdong Dantes with “Si Rizal at ang Gamu-gamo”; Carla Abellana narrates “Ang Alamat ni Mariang Makiling”; Susan Enriquez for “Ang Alamat ng Ampalaya”; Ken Chan reads the “Alamat ng Bulkang Mayon”; and Aicelle Santos with “Ang Alamat ng Pinya.”
Viewers should also watch out for “Ang Alamat ng Araw, Buwan at mga Bituin” narrated by Mariz Umali; Sandra Aguinaldo for “Ang Alamat ng Lanzones”; Christian Bautista with “Si Malakas at si Maganda”; Mike Tan reads “Bi-ag ni Lam-ang”; and “Ang Alamat ng Tsokolateng Burol (Chocolate Hills)” with Rocco Nacino.
“As a parent and actor, reading for Pinoy A+ was really a fun experience for me,” shared Dingdong. “It felt like I was reading it for my own kids and I’m glad that GMA Pinoy TV has this kind of show that children and their parents can both enjoy.”
Carla Abellana, another storyteller for season 2, likewise expressed her appreciation to Pinoy A+. “Having the chance to share the beauty of our Filipino literature and impart lessons to our young viewers here and abroad is something I truly cherish. As one of the storytellers, I also got to relive the classic Filipino stories that we’ve also heard of when we were young.”
Broadcast journalist Kara David, on the other hand, shared that she took a trip down memory lane while taking part of the first season of Pinoy A+. “My parents instilled in us a love for reading. Reading not only widens your vocabulary; it also enhances one’s imagination. It has the power to make you travel and experience new worlds through imagination. For this reason, I’ve always been fascinated with storytelling — something that I still enjoy till now when I write my documentaries. Kaya when the invitation for Pinoy A+ came, I was so excited to be a part of it. Not only does this project impart knowledge to young kids… it is also a good opportunity to highlight the Filipino language and our beautiful Filipino values.”
The Kapuso abroad also praised GMA Pinoy TV for bringing an effective program that helps educate and entertain the audience. Some of them also mentioned that such content makes them and their kids rediscover their roots as Filipinos.
Joren Gajurel, a GMA Pinoy TV subscriber from Abu Dhabi shared that his child watches the show and tries to learn Tagalog. “Mabuhay po ang lahat ng bumubuo ng Pinoy A+ at GMA Pinoy TV,” he also wrote.
“I’m a 73-year-old Fil-Am resident of New Jersey. I want to commend your Pinoy A+ program, it’s not only for kids but for everyone. I like it, including the pretty faces of the narrators. Congrats and more power!” Tony Merdi commented on Facebook.
Meanwhile, GMA Pinoy TV also offers a limited-edition Pinoy A+ merchandise where parents and their kids can get Twinning Face Masks or kiddie shirts featuring cute designs based on well-loved Filipino folklores.
