    Si Makisig: Ang Batang Nagligtas sa Kanyang Bayan

    The story is adapted from “Makisig the Little Hero of Mactan” by Gemma Cruz Araneta, which won the first prize in a children’s-story-writing contest. Makisig shows qualities desirable in a good child: bravery, industry, a sense of initiative, and a habit of being early. Because of his zeal to help and please his parents, he would get up early and sail to fish for breakfast. It was during one such trip that, from a distance, he sighted the big ships of foreign invaders. He rowed quickly back to his village, ran past the guards of Datu Lapu Lapu and informed him of what he had seen.
