Citation from 2014 National Children's Book Awards:
Ants are marvelous creatures! They communicate well with one another, cooperate and divide their work, and solve complex problems. Thus, using ant siblings as main characters for Hating Kapatid is such a wonderful idea as it clarifies the issues of fairness and sharing. It begins with a young ant’s curiosity on what “hating kapatid” means. His older brother then tries to trick him with wrong ideas about equality. The story successfully settles for the reader what it means to be fair.

The book delights, amuses, and instructs in gentle ways. It’s beautifully illustrated as Filipino storybooks should be. It walks readers through sweet and delicious Filipino snacks to know and enjoy them as ants would do.

This book has won the hearts of all the judges because of its wit and its ability to teach an important value without trying too hard.
